Spectrum Occupancy Measurements and Analysis Methods on the 2.45 GHz ISM Band
The authors performed spectrum occupancy measurements on the 2.45 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band in the area of Oulu, Finland. The comprehensive measurement campaign consisted of eight different locations and ten different measurement occasions, each with approximately one week of continuous spectrum monitoring. The measurement data is analyzed from the viewpoint of fitting new systems on 2.45 GHz ISM band, rather than pure duty cycle analysis. To aid accurate analysis, they propose Transmission Encapsulation based on the Connected Component Labeling (TECCL).
