Researchers in the Communications Technology Laboratory are developing new measurement methods to support the efficient use of radio spectrum through a better understanding of wireless coexistence, interference, and rigorous metrology.
The overarching goal of the Coexistence Project is to support the development, evaluation, and optimization of spectrum sharing techniques. These techniques include methods to model, simulate, and physically measure the ability of wireless communications systems to maintain their functional performance in the presence of other wireless communications systems.
The Coexistence Project contains three key elements: measurements, modeling/simulation, and stakeholder engagement.
There is a need for neutral evaluation of 5g by NASCTN to address concerns raised by the weather forecasting community about potential spectrum collisions in the 24GHz band resulting from the deployment of commercial 5G networks at these frequencies.
