P802.22 - Standard for Information Technology - Local and Metropolitan Area Networks - Specific Requirements - Part 22: Cognitive Radio Wireless Regional Area Networks (WRAN) Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications: Policies and Procedures for Operation in the Bands that Allow Spectrum Sharing where the Communications Devices may Opportunistically Operate in the Spectrum of the Primary Service

This standard is intended to enable deployment of interoperable IEEE 802(R) multivendor wireless regional area network products, to facilitate competition in broadband access by providing alternatives to wireline broadband access and extending the deployability of such systems into diverse geographic areas, including sparsely populated rural areas, while preventing harmful interference to incumbent licensed services. The standard specifies operation in the bands that allow spectrum sharing where the communications devices may opportunistically operate in the spectrum of the primary service such as 1300 MHz to 1750 MHz, 2700 MHz to 3700 MHz, and the VHF/UHF TV broadcast bands between 54 MHz to 862 MHz.This standard specifies the air interface, including the cognitive radio medium access control layer (MAC) and physical layer (PHY), of point-to-multipoint and backhaul wireless regional area networks comprised of a professional fixed base station with fixed and portable user terminals. The standard specifies operation in the bands that allow spectrum sharing where the communications devices may opportunistically operate in the spectrum of the primary service, such as 1300 MHz to 1750 MHz, 2700 MHz to 3700 MHz, and the VHF/UHF TV broadcast bands between 54 MHz to 862 MHz.
