Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,094

1. An apparatus for assessing and mitigating radio frequency interference (RFI) in a network comprising a plurality of wireless devices, the apparatus comprising: memory; andprocessing circuitry coupled to the memory, the processing circuitry to:
during an RFI assessment phase:
receive an attacker signal to operate as an attacker device;
respond to the attacker signal by causing the processing circuitry to:
transmit a transmitted interference test packet (ITPkt) to one or more other wireless devices of the plurality of wireless devices, wherein the transmitted ITPkt comprises ITPkt parameters comprising: a network identifier of the device, a transmission globally unique identifier, and a time of transmission for a transmitted interference test pattern (ITPat); and
transmit the transmitted ITPat at the time of transmission for the transmitted ITPat.
