Description 
bcEss 
An extended service set. A set of one or more interconnected basic service sets (BSSs) and integrated local area networks (LANs) that appears as a single BSS to the logical link control layer at any station associated with one of those BSSs.
An AP set the ESS subfield to 1 and the IBSS subfield to 0 within transmitted Beacon or Probe Response frames. A peer station within an IBSS (ad hoc network) sets the ESS subfield to 0 and the IBSS subfield to 1 in transmitted Beacon or Probe Response frames.
 
bcIbss 
An independent basic service set. A BSS that forms a self-contained network, and in which no access to a distribution system (DS) is available (an ad hoc network).
An AP sets the ESS subfield to 1 and the IBSS subfield to 0 within transmitted Beacon or Probe Response frames. A peer station within an IBSS (ad hoc network) sets the ESS subfield to 0 and the IBSS subfield to 1 in transmitted Beacon or Probe Response frames.
 
bcCfPollable 
A value that indicates if the AP or peer station is pollable.  
bcCfPollRequest 
A value that indicates how the AP or peer station handles poll requests.  
bcPrivacy 
A value that indicates if encryption is required for all data frames.
An AP sets the Privacy subfield to 1 within transmitted Beacon and Probe Response frames if WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption is required for all data type frames exchanged within the BSS. If WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption is not required, the Privacy subfield is set to 0.
A peer station within and IBSS sets the Privacy subfield to 1 within transmitted Beacon and Probe Response frames if WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption is required for all data type frames exchanged within the IBSS. If WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption is not required, the Privacy subfield is set to 0.
