1 Spectrum sensing technological approach Spectrum sensing consists in scanning several adjacent channels in order to decide if some of them are or are not being used by licensed users. Although the most practical solution, spectrum sensing suffers from the hidden-terminal problem, which makes it necessary to detect extremely low signal levels. g. pilot carrier/symbols, frequency/time periodicity). Therefore, many algorithms rely on the intrinsic characteristics of the signal to detect, which means different algorithms and sensing levels should be devised for each technology to protect.

3 Technology proposals for spectrum awareness • • • Amplitude • 27 a single sensing level is not appropriate for all scenarios; the most challenging situation is an indoor WSD device trying to detect an outdoor DTT signal received by a rooftop antenna. In addition to those challenging values, the existence of interference in channels near the ones being scanned substantially degrades the performance of the sensing algorithms. Therefore, with technology available today, spectrum sensing is not reliable enough.

This solution seems extremely costly and the beacon planning could be challenging as adjacent cell beacons should not overlap. As a result, the beacon solution does not seem feasible in the near future. Despite all these technology proposals, the engineers and designers of white space solutions should be aware that protection of several existing technologies should be guaranteed. [8] These include but are not restricted to: • DTT broadcasting: To detect DVB-T, sensing levels in the range –91 dBm to −155 dBm were obtained in [8] in the scenarios described above.
