1. A method of operating a network node in a radio access network, the method comprising: scheduling a guard period based on a received Base Station-to-Base Station (BS-to-BS) interference indication, the received BS-to-BS interference indication including a distance from an interfering node to the network node; performing one or more measurements during the guard period for determining an identity associated with the interfering node; determining the identity based on the received BS-to-BS interference indication and the one or more measurements; and operating on a carrier based on the received BS-to-BS interference indication, the guard period, and the determined identity.
