Beacon Management Frame - One of the most important 802.11 frame types. Commonly referred to as the beacon. Beacons are essentially the heartbeat of the wireless network. They are sent only by the AP of a BSS. Client stations transmit beacons only when participating in an IBSS. Each beacon contains a time stamp, which the client stations use to keep their clocks in synch with the AP."
