Title: MITIGATION OF PERIODIC INTERFERENCE IN A WIRELESS LOCAL AREA NETWORK
Abstract:
A wireless access point device that schedules packet transmission and reception by a set of devices in a wireless local area network is operated. The set of devices includes the access point device and one or more other devices. Operation involves detecting the presence of periodic transmissions on a first carrier frequency from a first transmitter not operating in the wireless local area network, wherein one or more future occurrences of the periodic transmissions will interfere with reception of a packet by a first device of the set of devices. Packet transmission and reception are scheduled within the wireless local area network such that the first device performs packet transmission and no reception during the one or more future occurrences of the detected periodic transmissions.
