The Wi-Fi Alliance, which counts Comcast, Cisco, Intel, Apple and Broadcom as members, is set to hold its LTE-U Coexistence Test Workshop in San Jose Tues. At the workshop the group will release a complete draft of the LTE-U coexistence test plan. New mobile technologies, like LTE-U, are being developed to operate in unlicensed spectrum alongside WiFi. The FCC is currently looking into the coexistence issue as well. It started a proceeding on LTE-U and LAA last year after complaints were filed, claiming that LTE-U backers were intent on launching LTE in unlicensed spectrum, threatening to interfere with WiFi users in that spectrum. Wi-Fi Alliance is conducting simulations and coexistence testing to ensure no adverse effects to the installed base of WiFi devices.
