With the advent of new Radio Access Technologies (RATs), it is inevitable that several RATs will co-exist, especially in the license-exempt band. In this letter, we present an in-depth adaptation of the proactive time-rearrangement (PATRA) scheme for IEEE 802.11WLAN. The PATRA is a time division approach for reducing interference from a multi-radio device. Because IEEE 802.11 is based on carrier sensing and contention mechanism, it is the most suitable candidate to adapt the PATRA.
