co-channel interference

The confusion in the tuning circuit of a wireless receiver due to a second wireless signal being detected with the same frequency. Due to weather conditions, wireless communications systems (radio, TV, etc.) in different locations that share common channels can experience co-channel interference. See co-channel.

As a result, Huawei APs' anti co-channel interference capability surpasses that of similar products from other vendors, providing customers with high-quality WiFi coverage even in extremely harsh environments.
RF planning tools also can optimize channel planning to avoid excessive co-channel interference.
By eliminating co-channel interference, providing multiple uplinks, and taking advantage of reflected RF rather than being hindered by it, the Extricom solution has an intrinsic reliability that is unparalleled in the WLAN industry.
11ac access points have outshone industry mainstream vendors offerings in terms of single- and multi-client throughput, signal coverage capability, and anti co-channel interference capabilities in product performance tests and verifications by The Tolly Group, a the leading provider of third-party IT testing and validation services.
The narrow beam antenna in the ZoneFlex 7782-N is able to focus RF energy into a specific area, which greatly reduces co-channel interference while increasing network performance.
The metal used in the construction of LPV's can cause signals to bounce in unpredictable directions while the large open spaces can also lead to higher co-channel interference between AP's.
Placing two APs adjacent to one another is not possible if they are both broadcasting on the same channel, since the resulting co-channel interference confuses clients within range (causing them to flip-flop from one AP to the other), corrupts packets in the air and typically makes reliable connections impossible.
When companies arrange APs close enough to provide continuous coverage, however, each AP generates signals that interfere with neighboring APs, causing what is known as co-channel interference.
The use of Digital Signal Processing to actively monitor, groom and condition the uplink signal will substantially reduce the amount of spectrum wasted to guard bands, ingress from adjacent RF power and co-channel interference," said Gordon Reichard Jr.
11ad standard 60 GHz Wi-Fi is able to sustain maximum speed by eliminating co-channel interference, in spite of of the number of devices using the same network, and thus remove the gap between theoretical and actual speeds.
The result is a completely different experience for the user: significantly greater bandwidth and coverage than traditional WLANs, seamless mobility with no AP-to-AP handoffs, the elimination of RF cell planning and co-channel interference, and the ability to offer a performance guarantee for both connection rate and bandwidth.
HellaPHY works by increasing overall receiver performance, offering capacity improvements under challenging mobile channel conditions--including co-channel interference, inter-carrier interference, multi-path interference and thermal noise.
