Busy Tone Implementation for Coexistence of IEEE 802.22 and 802.11 af Systems
In this paper a new algorithm based on busy tone approach has been proposed for the coexistence of IEEE 802.22 and IEEE 802.11af systems in TV white space. Different from the earlier study in addition to 802.11af access points listening to the busy tone signal their clients also listen to the busy tone and let the access points know once they hear it. Accordingly interference caused to 802.22 systems has been reduced. This study quantifies the improved system performance in terms of interfering packet rate for different hearing regions considering the communication parameters and channel models adapted for the standards.
