Abstract
To mitigate the parasitic characteristics of radio channel, an intelligent RF control plane is desired. Spectrum Management for shipboard wireless modems, consideration for on shore equipment support, emphasis on exiting Wireless LAN protocols (802.11) with consideration for ultra wideband and even IR WLANs, are all required for maximizing radio functionality without having to maximize radio expertise. These requirements dramatically reduce the cost and complexity associated with building a business critical wireless network. A savvy spectrum management system is proposed for frequency coordination of shipboard wireless modems. This system utilizes sophisticated self-organizing interference, emission measurement, and prediction subsystems to determine the best suitable frequency band of operation. The proposed system also employs highly frequency agile front-ends for all its nodes to allow operations in the specified bands. The system will optimize throughput, power, and interference for a wireless networks, taking into account regulatory mandates.
