The continually increasing number of wireless devices operating in the unlicensed frequency bands makes the freely-available wireless spectrum a scarce commodity. Under such circumstances, efficient wireless spectrum management is necessary to minimize the effects of overcrowding and maximize quality of service. In this paper we present the design, implementation and evaluation of dynamic spectrum access protocol (DSAP), a centralized method for managing and coordinating spectrum access

Draft Proposal for Comment: Etiquette Rules and Procedures for Unlicensed Bands
The proposed set of rules builds on rules that govern operation of wireless devices in Europe and Japan and enhances them for adoption in the United States and it is believed that these rules will enable the regulators of the spectrum to set an etiquette that enforces fair sharing of the authors' precious national resource, while still allowing people to innovate at all levels of the protocol stack.
