Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I found this in IEEE 802.11A Spec -
The start of a valid OFDM transmission at a receive level equal to or greater than the minimum 6 Mbit/s sensitivity (-82 dBm) shall cause CCA to indicate busy with a probability >90% within 4 µs. If the preamble portion was missed, the receiver shall hold the carrier sense (CS) signal busy for any signal 20 dB above the minimum 6 Mbit/s sensitivity (-62 dBm).

How do i intepreated "6 Mbit/s sensitivity (-82 dBm)". Does 6 Mbit/s means the data-rate? and what is this -82dBm.

How do i intepreted "any signal 20 dB above the minimum 6 Mbit/s sensitivity (-62 dBm)"?

6 Mbit/s means the phy layer transmission data rate... and -82 dBm means the recieved power level in dBm...so the receiver will be busy for a valid OFDM transmission at a receive level equal to or greater than -82 dBm.

If the preamble part of the packet has not been received due to some reason , say collision, in that case the sensitivity level is increased to -62 dBm...so the receiver will be busy for a valid OFDM transmission at a receive level equal to or greater than -62 dBm.
