ABSTRACT Due to spectrum scarcity and emerging various wireless applications, coexistence and sharing between IMT-advanced and fixed wireless access (FWA) systems becomes a recently critical issue. At WRC-07, ITU-R allocated 3400-3600 MHz band for the coming fourth generation (4G) or IMT-Advanced on a co-primary basis along with existing FWA systems. Therefore, coexistence and sharing requirements like separation distance and frequency separation coordination must be achieved in terms of both co-channel and adjacent channel frequencies. Co-sited the two base stations antennas and non co-sited coexistence of the two systems are analyzed (depending on interference to noise ratio of -6 dB as a standard coexistence criteria). The interference analysis models, adjacent channel interference ratio ACIR and spectral emission mask (SEM) are applied in the mentioned band to extract the additional isolation needed to protect adjacent channel interference. Finally, possible intersystem interference mitigation techniques are suggested.

    ABSTRACT: Coexistence between IMT-Advanced system and existing digital broadcasting is a matter of considerable when operating in a same or adjacent frequency channel within the band 790-862 MHz, which is recently allocated for mobile IMTAdvanced Systems represented by LTE-Advanced system. This can cause intersystem interference that affects on the coexisting feasibility between LTE-Advanced and digital broadcasting Receiver. In this paper, an efficient, simplified and graphical scheme for spectral emission mask and interference power level is proposed to investigate different channel overlapping scenarios between the two systems. A range of significant factors such as bandwidth, propagation distance, losses due to clutter, and antenna discrimination losses that can affect on the compatibility feasibility of the two systems are employed. The results demonstrate that using co-channel may unworkable unless some intersystem interference mitigation techniques are applied.

    ABSTRACT: This paper considers the problem of adjacent channel interference between two different operators using different duplexing methods. Focusing on the interference between two colocated base stations, which existing guard-band based methods still cannot solve efficiently, we propose a scheme that adjusts the downlink power of the aggressor system to maximize the downlink transmission capacity while keeping the interference introduced to the victim system in a tolerable range. In addition to the power allocation scheme, a downlink user allocation scheme is proposed to improve further the downlink capacity. Simulations on 2.6-GHz systems show that the proposed schemes enable coexistence of two co-located base stations, and that the frequency spectrum is utilized more efficiently.

    ABSTRACT: High altitude platform station (HAPS) is an innovative technology which delivers some unique features, contrary to conventional communications networks, such as fixed satellite service (FSS). The absence of confirmed spectrum emission mask (SEM) of HAPS and its diversity to work within FSS networks are significant issues in evaluating the coexistence of HAPS and FSS. At this juncture, a practical SEM for HAPS gateway links is proposed which will endeavor to assess its functionality and its ability to coexist with FSS. HAPS SEM’s impact on coexistence issues are exposed upon consideration of criteria such as MD, NFD and ACIR. These facets are well-described and their measured amounts for specific applicable SEMs are proposed. Therefore, reckoning process regarding these factors is ascertained. It must be said that the remarked criteria and their amounts for HAPS gateway links are unprecedented. The simulation parameters are well organized based upon International Telecommunication Union and World Radiocommunications Conferences periodicals. The aim of this article is to shed more light on the associated facets of the HAPS network spectrum and their impressions on HAPS and FSS networks coexistence. The assessments have been performed for HAPS gateway links in the 5,850–7,075 MHz frequency band where FSS uplink frequency band in C-band (5,925–6,725 MHz) partially intrude with HAPS gateway links. Therefore, HAPS gateway links channelization regarding FSS uplink channel is appraised and light is shed on the impact of HAPS and FSS coexisting in the same frequency band.
