The MicroWave Oven (MWO) is a popular appliance that acts as an unintentional interferer for 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi communication signals. An interference mitigation technique is developed that incorporates cognitive radio paradigms allowing Wi-Fi devices to reliably transmit information while a residential MWO is operating. This technique is applied in(More)
– Radios for public safety communication have some of the most stringent requirements for access, reliability and robustness. While wireless technology has seen tremendous strides in the past decade, large parts of the public safety infrastructure have unfortunately lagged behind. Today a large number of the Land Mobile Radios (LMR) used by police and fire(More)
Some devices not used for data communications radiate in the 2.4 GHz Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi) band, thus causing unintentional interference that degrades the performance of IEEE 802.11 wireless systems. An analytical model for radio emissions from one of the most common unintentional interferers, the residential microwave oven, is developed from laboratory(More)
The MicroWave Oven (MWO) is a commonly available appliance that does not transmit data but still radiates signals in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. The MWO thus acts as an unintentional interferer for IEEE 802.11 Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) communication signals. An analytic model of the MWO signal is developed and(More)
