Abstract

Mobile World Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) are assumed to operate on adjacent channels in TV White Spaces(TVWs). Scenario of WiMAX potentially interfering with LTE is analyzed through Spectrum Engineering Advanced Monte Carlo Analysis Tool (SEAMCAT) based on the Monte-Carlo simulation method. As a result, the throughput loss of LTE UL is 5% below when the protection distance between the reference LTE BS(Base station) and the reference Mobile WiMAX BS is 100 km, which can meet the specified transmit power of Mobile WiMAX BS of 43 dBm. Also, when the protection distance between the reference LTE MS and the reference Mobile WiMAX BS is 18 km, which can meet the specified transmit power of Mobile WiMAX BS of 43 dBm.
