Abstract

Having available adequate and sufficient spectrum resources is a crucial factor to enable the fast growth of broadband mobile communications. Efficient use of scarce radio spectrum becomes more and more important. Especially in the lower frequency bands, with favorable conditions for mobile communications, spectrum will have to be shared between different services and applications. In this context effective sharing between mobile service and satellite services becomes increasingly important. It is no longer affordable to base the interference calculations on worst case assumptions. Therefore a novel and comprehensive approach of coexistence analysis is presented. The method discusses the extent to which propagation paths of various interference sources are correlated or not, and what the expected effect will be. Having a more realistic insight in the interference conditions could provide better viability of sharing arrangements, possibly with some realistic mitigation measures.
