Distributed Coordination Schemes for Multi-Radio Co-Existence in Dense Spectrum Environments: An Experimental Study on the ORBIT Testbed

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents an experimental study on the spectrum coexistence problems between multi-radio platforms in dense-radio physical world environments. Computing and communication devices such as laptops and cellular phones with multiple radios including WiFi, Bluetooth, UWB, WiMax and Zigbee in a small conference room face significant interference problems. The CSCC (Common Spectrum Coordination Channel) protocol proposed in earlier work is used as the basis for implementing a set of distributed spectrum coexistence algorithms intended to improve system performance. Detailed results from ORBIT testbed experiments are given for the proposed CSCC-based distributed spectrum coordination algorithms.
