PCF – Point Coordination Function

When contention free operation is required in an IEEE 802.11 network, special wireless stations called Point Coordinators are utilized which enable other stations to transmit frames after a shorter than normal time interval. Point Coordinators are only found in AP (Access Point) and as such PCF operation is restricted to Infrastructure networks.
