In this chapter, an aspect of spectrum sharing between a monostatic radar and 802.11 wireless local area networks (WLANs) (Wi-Fi) is explored. Specifically, it focuses on the determination of protection regions around the radar to keep the aggregate interference caused by activeWi-Fi (secondary) sources to within acceptable limits. Of particular interest is the impact of the deployment geometry of the Wi-Fi networks- modeled via suitable random spatial processes-on the statistics of the aggregate interference. The impact of various stochastic geometries on the resulting protection region is explored through both (Monte Carlo) simulation and analytical approaches.
