Ultra-narrowband (UNB) communications is an emerging paradigm that tackles two challenges to realizing massive Internet-of-things (IoT) connectivity over the unlicensed spectrum: the intra-network sharing, i.e., how the spectrum is shared among IoT devices, and the inter-network sharing, i.e., the coexistence of the IoT network with other incumbent networks. Specifically, intra-network sharing is enabled by using extremely narrowband signals to connect a massive number of IoT devices without… Expand

Impact of Ultra-Narrowband Interference on Wi-Fi Links: An Experimental Study
TLDR
A systematic methodology to experimentally investigate the impact of interference from a non-listen-before-talk ultra-narrowband (UNB) signaling technique on Wi-Fi links shows that if a single UNB interferer avoids these subcarriers and employs the OOK-modulation scheme, wireless coexistence is possible as long as the signal-to-interference ratio ofWi-Fi to UNB is greater than 30dB.

Spectrum Sharing for Massive Access in Ultra-Narrowband IoT Systems
TLDR
A stochastic geometry framework is developed to analyze and model UNB networks on a large scale and reveals several insights on the geographical diversity achieved when devices do not connect to a single BS, the optimal number of signal repetitions, and how to utilize multiple bands without increasing the complexity of BSs.
