Abstract

This paper presents a spectrum etiquette protocol for efficient coordination of radio communication devices in unlicensed (e.g. 2.4 GHz ISM and 5 GHz U-NII) frequency bands. The proposed etiquette method enables spectrum coordination between multiple wireless devices using different radio technologies such as IEEE 802.11.x, 802.15.x, Bluetooth, Hiperlan, etc. The basic idea is to standardize a simple common protocol for announcement of radio and service parameters, called the "common spectrum coordination channel (CSCC)". The CSCC mechanism is based on the low bit-rate mode of the 802.11b physical layer, along with a periodic broadcast protocol at the MAC layer. The CSCC protocol is "policy neutral" in the sense that it provides a general mechanism which can accommodate a wide range of specific spectrum sharing rules. One possible CSCC protocol implementation is described in terms of the packet formats used and related channel access rules. Proof-of-concept experimental results from a CSCC prototype are presented for an example scenario in which nearby 802.11b and Bluetooth devices contend for 2.4 GHz ISM band access. Results showing file transfer delay with and without CSCC etiquette are given for comparison purposes.
