doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) Frequency Hopping Characteristics The MB-OFDM (wide bandwidth frequency hopping) signal appears as a periodic intermittent signal to a victim receiver operating on a fixed frequency. The signal: 1.Appears to be turned on during the dwell time of the frequency hopping signal when the victim receiver frequency is within the bandwidth of the MB-OFDM signal, and 2.Appears to be turned off when the MB-OFDM signal hops to other frequencies.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) EIRP Measurement The Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) of the MB-OFDM signal during the dwell time exceeds the FCC limit. –Assuming non-overlapping hopping frequencies, the higher EIRP is given (approximately) by the following expression: P Dwell = XP FCC whereX = number of hopping frequencies P Dwell = EIRP during the dwell time in watts P FCC = EIRP of FCC limit in watts The EIRP when averaged over a time period that includes both the signal on interval (dwell time) and signal off interval (dwell times on other frequencies), the EIRP is within the FCC limit. –This is the result when measured with a 1 MHz resolution bandwidth as specified.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) Interference Characteristics Due to the short duration of the dwell time, narrowband receivers do not typically respond to the higher EIRP levels. –The interference level and effects would normally be equivalent to the average EIRP. Wideband receivers typically do respond to the higher EIRP levels if the victim receiver bandwidth approaches the inverse of the dwell time. –The increased interference level is approximately proportional to the number of hopping frequencies, but with a reduced duty cycle. –For example, 3 hopping frequencies results in interference levels of 3X or 4.77 dB higher than the FCC limit, 7 hopping frequencies produces interference levels of 7X or 8.45 dB higher, etc.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) FCC Power Measurements Historically, the FCC has required power measurements to be performed over intervals of continuous transmission. The intent of power measurement over intervals of continuous transmission is to prevent increased levels of interference as previously described.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) Interference Conclusions MB-OFDM (wide bandwidth frequency hopping) was not considered during the UWB Proceeding. –Deployment of such devices will result in higher levels of interference to some incumbents than was contemplated or intended under the First Report and Order. The FCC urges that IEEE perform technical analyses to ensure that any UWB standard it develops will not cause levels of interference beyond that already anticipated by the rules. –See attached FCC response from Julius Knapp Since –the current MB-OFDM proposal can be shown to cause higher levels of interference –recommend that the TG3a Task Group either: select a proposal that does not cause higher levels of interference or identify how to properly measure MB-OFDM proposals to prevent higher levels of interference and evaluate resulting performance.
doc.: IEEE 802.15-03/341r0 Submission 12Sept2003 John R. Barr (Motorola) FCC Response from Julius Knapp (11Sept03) Over the past few weeks several parties have met with the staff of the Federal Communications Commission Office of Engineering and Technology to discuss how the Commissions rules for Ultrawideband devices might be applied for certain signal formats that are being considered by IEEE 802.15. OET believes it is premature to make any determination as to the appropriate measurement methods for particular signals because this matter is under active discussion in IEEE. In this regard, we have no immediate plans to respond to the XSI/Motorola request for a declaratory ruling. We urge that IEEE perform technical analyses to ensure that any UWB standard it develops will not cause levels of interference beyond that already anticipated by the rules. This information will be needed to support any necessary FCC rules interpretations or other appropriate action for the chosen standard. The FCC has had a long history of working cooperatively with the IEEE 802 committee in addressing any regulatory issues that may arise relative to standards. We recommend that IEEE proceed with its standards development process and that the committee address any questions to us at a later time when it has formed a specific proposal.
