Experimental Verification of Indoor TV White Space Opportunity Prediction Model
Recent work has demonstrated that the underutilized spectrum in the Digital Television Bands, commonly referred to as TV White Space (TVWS), is a prime candidate for Opportunistic Spectrum Access (OSA). However, a systematic assessment of the availability of this spectrum for secondary transmission was, until very recently, lacking. In a TVWS opportunity prediction model to estimate indoor secondary usage probability was proposed. In this paper, the authors aim at verifying this model by means of measurement campaigns in both laboratory and real indoor environments. The match between the predictions from the simulation models and measurement results suggest that the model provides a realistic evaluation of the opportunities in TVWS for low power indoor secondary usage.
