Exclude Frequencies from Calculation

As part of frequency coordination, you can define single frequencies and ranges to avoid in the frequency calculation. These are called exclusions.

Tip: If you set your preferences to automatically define exclusions based on scan data (Preferences > Coordination > General), Wireless Workbench may display a starting list of exclusions. You can manually update automatic exclusions.
  1. In the Frequency Coordination tab, select the Spectrum tab, and then select the gear next to Additional Exclusions.
  2. To import a list of exclusions from a file, select Import. You can import exclusion files (.fxl), (.csv) or (.txt) file formats.
  3. If you've run a scan to generate exclusions, select Refresh scan data to see those exclusions listed.
  4. Select the + to add exclusions, either as single frequencies or in ranges. Enter the values for the frequency or frequency range.
  5. To define the channel spacing and intermodulation products for an exclusion, select one of the following options in the Equipment Profile cell:
    • Generic Device - IMD|Wideband Exclude the frequency with a highly conservative set of spacing parameters, and assume that this frequency will generate further intermod products
    • Generic Device - No IMD|Wideband Exclude this frequency with a fairly conservative set of spacing parameters, and assume that this frequency will not generate further intermods
    • Generic Exclusion - IMD|Wideband Exclude only this frequency, and assume that this frequency will generate further intermod products
    • Generic Exclusion - No IMD|Wideband Exclude only this frequency, and assume that this frequency will not generate further intermods
    • Select Equipment Profile... Use the hardware profile you select to avoid this frequency
  6. Use the check box to select all the exclusions you want to apply.
  7. To save the list for future use, select Export > To File.
  8. To save your changes, select Save.
