— This paper assumes that LTE and mobile WiMAX will operate in TV White Spaces (TVWS) bands in near future. However, compatibility between LTE and mobile WiMAX has to be taken into account in advance. Only the case of adjacent channel interference impact of LTE on Mobile WiMAX is analyzed by using Spectrum Engineering Advanced Monte-Carlo Analysis Tool (SEAMCAT). As a result, if interference probability of 5% is accepted, under condition of the assumed emission mask and specified transmitting power of LTE, the protection distance between the reference LTE BS and the reference Mobile WiMAX BS is should be more than 0.8km when the guard band between LTE Down link (DL) and mobile WiMAX is 1MHz and the guard band between LTE Up link (UL) and mobile WiMAX is 4 MHz.
— LTE, mobile WiMAX, interference, guard band.
