In this paper a collaborative coexistence mecha- nism for white space base stations is proposed. We look at the case where these base stations operate in geographical ar- eas where the density of used TV channels is such that only one channel is left for broadband access. We show how with cooperative closed loop control and a clustering strategy, it is possible to find feasible power assignments that provide a flexible and stable coverage solution. The framework under which we study our proposal is based on the IEEE 802.22 stan- dard, which provides white space guidelines for applications in broadband access or machine-to-machine communications. We propose and evaluate a self-organized, collaborative power control and design strategy to enable effective coexistence of base stations under extreme bandwidth constraints. Finally, we also portray how proposed approach positively compares against others from different wireless access technologies.
