—In this paper, we investigate the spectrum sharing requirements of secondary access to 960-1215 MHz band which is primarily allocated to aeronautical usage. Primary system of interest is distance measuring equipments (DME) aiding navigation of airplanes. We consider a scenario where indoor femtocells share the spectrum as secondary users. For the(More)
—As mobile IP-access is becoming the dominant technology for providing wireless services, the demand for more spectrum for this type of access is increasing rapidly. Since IP-access can be used for all types of services, instead of a plethora of dedicated, single-service systems, there is a significant potential to make spectrum use more efficient. In this(More)
– As Digital Television Broadcasting spreads over the world, existing (and more) TV channels can be distributed in less spectrum in the spectrum traditionally allocated to TV broadcasting. This freed spectrum is also referred to as the "Digital Dividend" and its use has been debated around the world. In addition, there is also a debate about the potential(More)
—Recent work has demonstrated that the underutilized spectrum in the Digital Television Bands, commonly referred to as TV White Space (TVWS), is a prime candidate for opportunistic spectrum access (OSA). However, a systematic assessment of the availability of this spectrum for secondary transmission was, until very recently, lacking [5] [6]. In [6] a TVWS(More)
In this paper, we analyze the feasibility of indoor broadband service provisioning using secondary spectrum access to the 960-1215 MHz band, primarily allocated to the distance measuring equipment (DME) system for aeronautical navigation. We propose a practical secondary sharing scheme customized to the characteristics of the DME. Since the primary system(More)
—In this paper, we provide a quantitative assessment of the available spectrum for massive indoor broadband secondary access in the 960-1215 MHz band, primarily allocated to the distance measuring equipment (DME) systems. We employ a practical sharing scheme where the secondary users share the DME spectrum via geo-location database and spectrum sensing.(More)
