1. A method, comprising:receiving, at a WiFi access point of a small cell, a transmission request for transmitting data by a Long Term Evolution (LTE) access point of the small cell;
determining, by the WiFi access point, channel use data indicating traffic on a plurality of channels of an unlicensed LTE band in a wireless network;
selecting, by the WiFi access point, a channel for use in transmitting data by the LTE access point from among the plurality of channels using the determined channel use data;
at a second time prior to a first time, determining, by the WiFi access point, whether the channel is available for the LTE access point to transmit the data for a duration after the first time;
in response to determining the channel is available, reserving, by the WiFi access point, the channel for transmission for the duration after the first time; and
transmitting, by the WiFi access point, an indication that the channel is ready for transmission to the LTE access point.
