Title
(EN) MIXED-MODE MEDIUM ACCESS CONTROL (MAC) ON A SHARED COMMUNICATION MEDIUM
Abstract
(EN)

Techniques for co-existence on a shared communication medium are disclosed. To foster co-existence, operation of a first Radio Access Technology (RAT) may be cycled between active periods and inactive periods of transmission, on a communication medium shared with a second RAT, in accordance with a Discontinuous Transmission (DTX) communication pattern. An identifier may be selected for association with the first RAT. A channel reservation message associated with the second RAT may then be transmitted, over the communication medium, to reserve the communication medium for one of the active periods, the channel reservation message including the identifier.
