Abstract

The surge in smart phones, tablets, and other wireless electronics has drastically increased data usage and wireless communication, creating massive traffic spectrum demand. Congestion is mainly due to inefficient use of spectrum, rather than spectrum scarcity. Spectrum coexistence schemes provide opportunities for efficient use of the spectrum. Furthermore, software-defined hardware reconfiguration after signal detection can be completed to reduce the power consumption of adaptive analog/RF front ends. In this paper, we propose a Wi-Fi and LTE protocol coexistence architecture, and present its implementation using a Xilinx evaluation board and ADI RF front end.
