Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS:

1. Method for protecting incumbent services whereas in the incumbent services first information is exchanged between first communication means by radio frequency transmission within a first bandwidth using a first protocol and second information is exchanged between second communication means by radio frequency transmission within a second bandwidth using a second protocol and the second bandwidth is overlapping and larger than the first bandwidth comprising the steps

- ascertaining the presence of any first information exchange between said first communication means;
- transmitting a protecting information at least about the presence of a first information exchange to at least one of the second communication means;

- inhibit said at least one of the second communication means to use the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first information for transmitting the second information and
- transmitting the second communication within a frequency range wherein the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first information for transmitting the second information are notched.

2. Method according to claim 0 wherein the protecting information is placed and transmitted within the second protocol.

3. Method according to claim 0 or 0 wherein the protecting information is transmitted from one of the second communication means to the other second communication means.

4. Method according to claim 0 wherein said one of the second communication means is a stationary station.

5. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 further comprising the steps

- assessing the radio frequencies used for the first information exchange and

- transmitting the assessed result as protecting information.

6. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the inhibited frequencies are predetermined within the at least one of the second communication means and are selected corresponding to the protecting information.

7. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the inhibited frequencies are autodetected by one of the second communication means.

8. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the inhibited frequencies are adjusted by the user of one of the second communication means.

9. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the second information exchange is carried out in Ultra Wideband.

10. Method according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the second information exchange is carried out in WLAN.

11. Communication system for protecting incumbent services whereas a incumbent service uses first communication means for exchanging first information by radio frequency transmission within a first bandwidth using a first protocol and whereas the communication system includes second communication means for exchanging second information between second communication means by radio frequency transmission within a second bandwidth using a second protocol and the second bandwidth is overlapping and larger than the first bandwidth comprising
- means for ascertaining the presence of any first information exchange between said first communication means;
- means for transmitting a protecting information at least about the presence of a first information exchange to at least one of the second communication means;

- at least one of the second communication means provided with means for
inhibiting the usage of the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first
information for transmitting the second information and
- second communication means transmitting the second communication within a frequency range wherein the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first information for transmitting the second information are notched.

12. Communication system according to claim 0 wherein the second means are processing the second protocol wherein the protecting information is included and transmitted within the second protocol.

13. Communication system according to claim 0 or 0 wherein the protecting information is transmitted from one of the second communication means to the other second communication means.

14. Communication system according to claim 0 wherein said one of the second communication means is a stationary station.

15. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 further comprising means for
- assessing the radio frequencies used for the first information exchange and

- transmitting the assessed result as protecting information.

16. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the frequencies of the first information exchange are predetermined within the at least one of the second communication means and to be selected as inhibited frequencies corresponding to the protecting information.

17. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein at least one of the second communication means is provided with means for autodetecting the inhibited frequencies.

18. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein at least one of the second communication means is provided with means for adjusting the inhibited frequencies by the user.

19. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the second communication means are members of Ultra Wideband.

20. Communication system according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the second communication means are members of WLAN.

21. Communication unit for protecting incumbent services whereas a incumbent service uses first communication means for exchanging first information by radio frequency transmission within a first bandwidth using a first protocol and for communication with a second information exchange between second communication means as one of the communication means for exchanging second information between second communication means by radio frequency transmission within a second bandwidth using a second protocol and the second bandwidth is overlapping and larger than the first bandwidth including means for inhibiting the usage of the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first information for transmitting the second information and means transmitting the second communication within a frequency range wherein the radio frequencies used for exchanging the first information for transmitting the second information are notched.

22. Communication unit according to claim 0 provided with means for ascertaining the presence of any first information exchange between said first communication means and means for transmitting a protecting information at least about the presence of a first information exchange to at least one of the second communication means.

23. Communication unit according to claim 0 or 0 processing the second protocol wherein the protecting information is included and transmitted within the second protocol.

24. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 comprising means for
- assessing the radio frequencies used for the first information exchange and

- transmitting the assessed result as protecting information.

25. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein the frequencies of the first information exchange are predetermined within the at least one of the second communication means and to be selected as inhibited frequencies corresponding to the protecting information.

26. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein at least one of the second communication means is provided with means for autodetecting the inhibited frequencies.

27. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 wherein at least one of the second communication means is provided with means for adjusting the inhibited frequencies by the user.

28. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 whereas the communication unit is formed as a member of Ultra Wideband.

29. Communication unit according to one of the claims 0 to 0 whereas the communication unit is formed as a member of WLAN.
