Towards LTE-U Interference Detection, Assessment and Mitigation in 802.11 Networks using Commodity Hardware

We propose WiPLUS – a system that enables WiFi to deal with the stealthy invasion of LTE-U into the frequency bands used by WiFi. Using solely MAC layer information extracted passively, during runtime, out of the hardware registers of the WiFi NIC at the WiFi access point, WiPLUS is able to: i) detect interfering LTE-U signals, ii) compute their duty-cycles… CONTINUE READING
