Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR OPERATING A DEVICE ON A LICENSED SPECTRUM AND AN UNLICENSED SPECTRUM
Abstract:
A method and apparatus (600, 800) operate a device on a licensed spectrum and an unlicensed spectrum. The device can operate (610) on a Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) channel by coomunicating with a WWAN base station using a WWAN Radio Access Technology (RAT). At least one Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) base station that uses the WWAN RAT operating on a WLAN frequency can be detected (620). WLAN frequencies can be scanned (630). Information including information about the at least one WLAN base station using the WWAN RAT, the results of scanning the WLAN frequencies, and device specific information to a base station can be sent (650). A WLAN channel of the WLAN frequencies with a WLAN base station of the at least one WLAN base station using the WWAN RAT can be communicated on (670) in response to sending the information.
