P802.22b - IEEE Standard for Information Technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems Wireless Regional Area Networks (WRAN)--Specific requirements Part 22: Cognitive Wireless RAN Medium Access Control (MAC) and Physical Layer (PHY) Specifications: Policies and Procedures for Operation in the TV Bands Amendment: Enhancement for Broadband Services and Monitoring Applications

The purpose of this amendment is to enhance the MAC and define an alternate PHY to accommodate broadband extensions and monitoring use cases for IEEE 802.22 devices operating is VHF/UHF TV broadcast bands between 54 MHz and 862 MHz.This amendment specifies alternate Physical Layer (PHY) and necessary Medium Access Control Layer (MAC) enhancements to IEEE Std. 802.22-2011 for operation in Very High Frequency (VHF)/Ultra High Frequence (UHF) TV broadcast bands between 54 MHz and 862 MHz to support enhanced broadband services and monitoring applications. The standard supports aggregate data rates greater than the maximum data rate supported by the IEEE Std. 802.22-2011. This standard defines new classes of 802.22 devices to address these applications and supports more than 512 devices in a network. This standard also specifies techniques to enhance communications among the devices and makes necessary amendments to the cognitive, security & parameters and connection management clauses. This amendment supports mechanisms to enable coexistence with other 802 systems in the same band.
