IEEE Std 802.22b-2015 (Amendment to IEEE Std 802.22-2011 as amended by IEEE Std 802.22a-2014) - 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 2: Enhancement for Broadband Services and Monitoring Applications

Description: Alternate physical layer (PHY) and necessary medium access control layer (MAC) enhancements to IEEE Std 802.22-2011 are specified in this amendment for operation in very high frequency/ultra-high frequency (VHF/UHF) television broadcast bands between 54 MHz and 862 MHz to support enhanced broadband services and monitoring applications. The amendment supports aggregate data rates greater than the maximum data rate supported by the IEEE Std 802.22-2011. This amendment defines new classes of IEEE 802.22(TM) devices to address these applications and supports more than 512 devices in a network. This amendment also specifies techniques to enhance communications among the devices and makes necessary amendments to the cognitive, security, and parameters and connection management clauses. This amendment supports mechanisms to enable coexistence with other IEEE 802(R) systems in the same band.(The PDF of this standard is available at no cost compliments of the IEEE GET program
