Licence-exempt wireless communication systems

Abstract

There is growing international interest in providing users with broadband wireless connectivity using licence-exempt networks rather than next generation licenced ones. This is a potentially disruptive trend, but because these systems are fundamentally different, it is still very unclear how significant this potential disruption is likely to be. Consequently, the aim of this paper is to overview the capabilities of the technologies typically used in licence-exempt systems and to then consider their potential performance limitations within the context of designed and randomly deployed Wi-Fi networks for different deployment densities.
