New IEEE Standard Addresses Network-Based Coexistence Methods for Lightly Licensed Devices

Excerpt:

IEEE and IEEE Standards Association (IIEEE-SA) have published the IEEE 802.19.1-2018 standard, Part 19: Wireless Network Coexistence Methods. The new standard enables the IEEE 802 family of wireless standards to effectively utilize license-exempt or lightly licensed devices by providing standardized coexistence methods among dissimilar or independently operated wireless networks under general authorization. It will help ensure fair and efficient spectrum sharing.

Finalized in June 2018, ITTT 802.19.1 specifies radio technology independent methods for network-based coexistence among dissimilar or independently operated networks. The standard is defined for geolocation-capable devices operating under general authorization such as TV band White Spaces (TVWS), 5 GHz license-exempt bands, and 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) lightly licensed bands.
