Radio technology independent methods for coexistence among dissimilar television band devices (TVBDs) and dissimilar or independently operated networks of TVBDs are specified in this standard.
Working Group Details
IEEE Standard for Information technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems--Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements--Part 19: Wireless Network Coexistence Methods
This standard specifies radio technology independent methods for network-based coexistence among dissimilar or independently operated networks of unlicensed devices and dissimilar unlicensed devices. The standard is defined for geo-location capable devices operating under general authorization such as TV band White Spaces, the 5 GHz license-exempt bands and the general authorized access the 3.5 GHz bands.

IEEE Recommended Practice for Local and Metropolitan Area Networks--Part 19: Coexistence Methods for IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15.4 Based Systems Operating in the Sub-1 GHz Frequency Bands
Millions of IEEE Std 802.15.4g(TM)-2012 based devices are currently operating in Sub-1 GHz frequency bands to provide the low to moderate data rate capabilities. IEEE Std 802.11ah(TM)-2016 may operate in the same Sub-1 GHz frequency bands and provides higher data rate capabilities. This recommended practice enables IEEE Std 802.15.4g and IEEE Std 802.11ah to effectively operate in license exempt Sub-1 GHz frequency bands, by providing best practices and coexistence methods.

IEEE Standard for Information technology--Telecommunications and information exchange between systems--Local and metropolitan area networks--Specific requirements--Part 19: TV White Space Coexistence Methods - Amendment 1: Coexistence Methods for Geo-location Capable Devices Operating under General Authorization
The network-based coexistence information exchange among networks and devices to enable network-based coexistence management is defined in this amendment to IEEE 802.19.1-2014. This amendment specifies procedures and protocols for collection and exchange of coexistence information of heterogeneous networks, spectrum resource measurements and network performance metrics, such as packet error ratio, delay, etc., and information elements and data structures to capture coexistence information.
