Title: TRANSMITTING TRAFFIC IN A SHARED FREQUENCY BANDWIDTH
Abstract:
An electronic device that transmits traffic in a wireless network is described. During operation, the electronic device transmits, using a first transceiver, a first type of traffic in a shared frequency band that is unlicensed. Then, the first transceiver reserves time for transmitting a second type of traffic in the shared frequency band. The reserved time may be determined in response to a request to reserve the time from a second transceiver in the electronic device transmitting the second type of traffic in the shared frequency band. Next, the first transceiver permits, in the reserved time, transmission by the second transceiver of the second type of traffic in the shared frequency band. Furthermore, the first transceiver prevents transmission of the first type of traffic during the reserved time, thereby segregating the first type of traffic from the second type of traffic in the shared frequency band.
