This paper presents a new approach for dynamic spectrum management for heterogeneous wireless devices. Local congestion degrades the reliability of wireless applications in the License Exempt bands. This leads to the research questions: (1) how to realize equal spectrum sharing between dissimilar systems, and (2) how to improve the collective spectrum efficiency. A solution is in dynamic distribution of the available spectrum between contesting devices. Politeness mechanisms embedded in the individual devices are considered as building blocks for the creation of a distributed dynamic spectrum management system. Medium Usage defines the medium occupied by each transmitter and receiver. A regulatory view is chosen, favoring technology neutrality and including receiver parameters.
