Database-Assisted Spectrum Sharing

The most recent FCC ruling requires that TV white-space devices must rely on a geo-location database to determine the spectrum availability. In such a database-assisted architecture, the incumbents (primary licensed holders of TV spectrum) provide the database with the up-to-date information including TV tower transmission parameters and TV receiver protection requirements. Based on this information, the database will be able to tell a white-space device (secondary users of TV spectrum) vacant TV channels at a particular location, given the white-space device’s transmission parameters such as the transmission power.

We have been developing several schemes that address the technology and economics issues of wireless spectrum sharing with spectrum database.
