Dynamic Spectrum Management Demo Featured at IEEE DySPAN Conference
As a pioneer and innovator of advanced wireless solutions, InterDigital has developed innovative spectrum harvesting technologies. InterDigital’s Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) solutions exploit and aggregate the capacity of underutilized bands to dynamically add more capacity to commercial LTE and Wi-Fi® systems – dramatically supplementing bandwidth. DSM is a holistic approach that combines pioneering technology advances such as radio frequency (RF) sensing, geo-location database-coordinated access, radio resource management and wireless access extensions, to dramatically increase capacity, significantly improve coverage and provide substantial mitigation of interference. As a result, new applications and services are now made possible in real-world deployments including:
- Wi-Fi access augmentation
- Cellular access augmentation (FDD and TDD)
- Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications
- Backhaul and last-mile access
- Multi-tier spectrum sharing models, including Licensed Shared Access (LSA), inter-operator sharing and approaches such as proposed by the PCAST recommendation.
InterDigital’s Wi-Fi (DSM-Wi-Fi) and LTE (DSM-LTE) solutions are being designed for standards-based interoperability to enable scalable and cost-effective solutions. InterDigital is working actively to lead initiatives within key standards such as ETSI, 3GPP and 802.11 to foster adoption of spectrum sharing capabilities. InterDigital is working across the ecosystem to drive market adoption and live demonstrations of its DSM solutions are being featured at DySPAN 2012.
The 6th annual IEEE Symposium on New Frontiers in Dynamic Spectrum Access Networks (DySPAN 2012), the leading international conference dedicated to the advancement of cutting-edge wireless technologies and associated regulatory policies, takes place 16–19 October 2012.
In conjunction with the symposium, InterDigital also published a new Dynamic Spectrum Management white paper -- providing a technical overview of spectrum harvesting through the allocation and aggregation of contiguous and non-contiguous licensed, unlicensed, and TV white space frequency channels.
