Over 120 of Europe’s and Asia’s largest mobile operators have spectrum that is specifically allocated to 3G TDD technologies.
This results in a natural limitation of a coverage area and consequently we can predict some 5 MHz spectrum opportunities in spatial dimension for OR use.
Opportunistic use of UMTS TDD bands could be a new source of revenue for actual 3G license owners.
OR must not cause harmful interference in a UMTS.
UMTS system does not need to be changed.
UMTS sensing challenges:
UMTS is a DS-Spread Spectrum system.
Classical Energy Detector doesn\'t work due to low PSD of UMTS signals.
Focus on the detection of UMTS TDD signals through the use of a cyclostationary detector.
There is a fundamental tradeoff between the probability of missed detection Pm =1-Pd and the probability of false alarm.
A high Pm causes high probability of interference, on the other hand, high Pfa would result in low spectrum utilization, since false alarms increase number of wasted opportunities.
Sensing problem formulation
The Observation Time until detection the primary user is very critical because, during that time the OR is creating harmful interference to the UMTS system.
