P802.22.1 - Standard for Information Technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems--Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements Part 22.1: Standard to Enable Spectrum Sharing using Advanced Beaconing

This standard proposes an advanced beaconing specification to facilitate spectrum sharing. The beacon contains information about the system that is willing to share the spectrum but needs interference protection. Any new system that wants to operate in the same bands will decode this information from the beacon and adjust its parameters accordingly to not cause the interference with that system.This standard specifies methods for spectrum sharing using advanced beaconing. The beacon specifies a format that facilitates its detection at low Signal to Noise Ratios. It contains information about a system that requires interference protection and is willing to share the spectrum with other systems. The Standard defines Physical Layer (PHY) and Medium Access Control Layer (MAC) for advanced beacon operation in High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency (VHF), Ultra High Frequency (UHF) (3MHz to 862 MHz) and the S-Band (2 GHz - 4 GHz). Enhanced security features, spectrum management, self- organizing network and relay capabilities are included in the beacon specification. The beacon supports spectrum sharing with licensed wireless microphones, radars, fixed and transportable space to earth receiver stations and other services. This standard supports mechanisms to enable coexistence with other 802 systems in the same band.
