Abstract
(EN)
A network operating in a 1st radio access technology RAT (e.g., Wi-Fi) can avoid interference to/from another network operating in a 2nd RAT (e.g., LTE) by detecting within a predefined interval, of a resource allocation of the coexisting 2nd RAT, whether the resource allocation (e.g., one subframe) is occupied or vacant. Only when the resource allocation was detected to be vacant, then transmissions according to the 1st RAT are restricted to occur within boundaries of the resource allocation of the coexisting 2nd RAT that was determined to be vacant. When the resource allocation was detected to be occupied, nodes in the 2nd RAT can enter a sleep mode for power savings. The nodes can compare an energy level sensed during the predefined interval against a predefined threshold for the detecting. All of these procedures can be independent of cooperation with any network node operating in the coexisting 2nd RAT.

Selon la présente invention, un réseau fonctionnant dans une première technologie d'accès radio RAT (par exemple, WiFi) peut éviter un brouillage vers/depuis un autre réseau fonctionnant dans une 2nde RAT (par exemple, LTE) par détection à l'intérieur d'un intervalle prédéfini, d'une affectation de ressources de la 2nde RAT coexistante, si l'affectation de ressources (par exemple, une sous-trame) est occupée ou vacante. Seulement lorsque l'affectation de ressources a été détectée comme vacante, des émissions selon la 1ère RAT sont restreintes pour se produire à l'intérieur de frontières de l'affectation de ressources de la 2nde RAT coexistante qui a été déterminée comme vacante. Lorsque l'affectation de ressources a été détectée comme occupée, des nœuds dans la 2nde RAT peuvent entrer dans un mode de sommeil pour des économies d'énergie. Les nœuds peuvent comparer un niveau d'énergie détecté durant l'intervalle prédéfini à un seuil prédéfini pour la détection. Toutes ces procédures peuvent être indépendantes d'une coopération avec n'importe quel nœud de réseau fonctionnant dans la 2nde RAT coexistante.
