Title: SELECTING A CHANNEL BASED ON BACKHAUL BANDWIDTH
Abstract:
In some implementations, a base station may determine a bandwidth associated with a backhaul connecting the base station to a network. The base station may select a band in an unlicensed spectrum based at least partly on a scan of at least a portion of the unlicensed spectrum. The base station may select an operating channel in the band based at least partly on a characteristic of the operating channel and the bandwidth associated with the backhaul. After selecting the operating channel, the base station may, based on one or more conditions, re-scan the band and select a new operating channel based at least partly on a characteristic of the new operating channel.
