The current standardized algorithm for U.S. federal incumbent protection in the 3.5 GHz band is sub-optimum in that it moves more commercial transmissions out of the protected channel than necessary, in most cases. This paper proposes a more efficient algorithm that packs transmissions in the allowed interference budget jointly across incumbent receiver azimuths rather than independently, resulting in 7% to 40% fewer commercial transmissions affected.
