Title (EN) WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS APPROACH USING BACKGROUND MONITORING
(FR) APPROCHE DE COMMUNICATIONS SANS FIL METTANT EN OEUVRE UNE SURVEILLANCE DU FOND
Abstract:
(EN) A wireless communications approach includes background monitoring to identify incumbent users and to characterize communications channels. One or more communications channels are used for wireless communications and are monitored separately and concurrently with the communications on the one or more communications channels. The background monitoring may identify communications channels that have incumbent users or do not have acceptable performance and therefore are not to be used for communications. The background monitoring may also pre-qualify communications channels that do not have incumbent users and have acceptable performance. When a determination is made that a particular communications channel is no longer to be used for communications, for example, because an incumbent user has been detected on the particular communications channel or because the performance of the particular communications channel is no longer acceptable, then the particular communications channel is replaced by a replacement communications channel identified via the background monitoring.
(FR) L'invention concerne une approche de communications sans fil consistant à surveiller le fond, aux fins d'identification d'utilisateurs titulaires et de caractérisation des canaux de communications. Un ou plusieurs canaux de communications sont utilisés pour des communications sans fil et sont surveillés de manière distincte des communications sur les canaux de communications et conjointement avec celles-ci. La surveillance du fond peut identifier des canaux de communications comprenant des utilisateurs titulaires ou ne présentant pas des performances acceptables et n'étant pas, par conséquent, utilisés pour des communications. La surveillance du fond peut également qualifier au préalable des canaux de communications ne possédant pas d'utilisateurs titulaires et présentant des performances acceptables. Quand il est déterminé qu'un canal de communications spécifique n'est plus utilisé pour des communications, par exemple, du fait qu'un utilisateur titulaire a été détecté sur le canal de communications spécifique ou du fait que les performances du canal de communication spécifique ne sont plus acceptables, alors le canal de communications spécifique est remplacé par un canal de communications de remplacement identifié par le biais de la surveillance du fond.
