1. A method performed by one or more computing devices, the method comprising:
determining to change a bandwidth of a wireless communication channel on which a transmitter and a receiver communicate; and
in response to the determination, and while the transmitter and the receiver maintain data communication on the wireless communication channel:
determining, for each of one or more communication parameters of the wireless communication channel, a target value for the communication parameter, the one or more communication parameters including at least one of (i) a center frequency of the wireless communication channel or (ii) a frequency bandwidth of the wireless communication channel;
identifying a rate of change for each of the one or more communication parameters, the rate of change for each communication parameter being a rate at which the communication parameter can be changed over time while continuing to transfer data on the wireless communication channel; and
providing, to the transmitter and for each of the one or more communication parameters, data that causes the transmitter to gradually adjust the communication parameter using the rate of change for the communication parameter until the communication parameter reaches the target value for the communication parameter.
