Performance Evaluation of an IEEE 802.15.4 Cognitive Radio Link in the 2360-2400 MHz Band

In this paper, the authors analyze the performance of an IEEE 802.15.4 radio link in the 2360-2400 MHz band to support the ongoing Medical Body Area Network (MBAN) standardization activities in IEEE 802.15. There has been a lot of interest recently in opening the 2360-2400 MHz band for secondary allocations to promote MBAN innovations by providing a spectrum with less interference. In this paper, they characterize the primary services in this band, focusing on Electronic News Gathering/Outside Broadcasting (ENG/OB) and Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT) systems.
