The objective of this project was to carry out the coexistence evaluation of Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) with WiFi, of the WFA. The work has then focused on developing models related to the standardization process for Release 13. In particular, Listen Before Talk mode was developed for LTE. Scenarios defined in TR36.889 were constructed to evaluate different technical topics. The work resulted in a submitted contribution to 3GPP RAN1 in November 2015.
