Licence-exempt secondary Long Term Evolution systems have been proposed recently, in attempt to meet the needs of rapidly growing wireless mobile applications. However, where the secondary network is spread over a large geographical area, traditional detect-and-avoid algorithms are less effective in providing interference protection to Primary Users while maximising the secondary throughput. Spectrum cartography is an emerging technique that can be used to discover spectrum holes in space. We propose a downlink power allocation algorithm using Kriging Spatial Interpolation and Compressive Sensing based spectrum cartography in an environment where large scale shadow fading is prominent. We evaluate the performance of our approach by simulating a secondary Urban Microcell network operating in TV White Space. Simulation results show a significant improvement in interference and throughput, in comparison to traditional detect-and-avoid algorithms. © 2013 IEEE.
