Claim of US Patent No. 10,574,334

1. A method of operating a wireless relay-comprising a wireless access point and a wireless network transceiver to manage Radio Frequency (RF) interference, the method comprising:the wireless access point wirelessly exchanging user data with wireless user devices using an amount of Carrier Aggregation Secondary Component Carriers (CA SCCs) in an RF band;
the wireless network transceiver exchanging the user data with a wireless communication network using a number of RF channels in the RF band;
the wireless access point determining when RF interference in the RF band exceeds an RF interference threshold and notifying the wireless network transceiver over an Ethernet switch when the RF interference in the RF band exceeds the RF interference threshold;
responsive to the excessive RF interference, the wireless access point wirelessly exchanging subsequent user data with the wireless user devices using a lower amount of the CA SCCs in the RF band;
responsive to the excessive RF interference, the wireless network transceiver wirelessly exchanging the subsequent user data with the wireless communication network using a lower number of RF channels in the RF band; and
the wireless network transceiver resetting when the RF interference stabilizes to an acceptable level.
