  • Software radio


Leading idea from discussions 6 28 04 rethinking how we use the spectrum

Leading Idea from Discussions 6-28-04: Rethinking how we use the Spectrum

  • Problem: Existing policy of primarily exclusive use by license holders does not make efficient use of spectrum (large quantities of spectrum not used at a given time)

  • Alternative: allow for secondary use/access schemes

    • User with traffic can negotiate with license holder in real time for temporary use, or

    • “Easements” for unlicensed use could be granted provided the license holder gets it back when it needs it

  • Technical implications:

    • a given radio must be frequency and mode agile to be able to use a wide range of bands and standards as needed

    • Protocols are needed to enable the necessary negotiations for secondary use

  • This topic combines several ideas—cognitive/software defined radio, testbed, policy…

    • Need SDR partner


Writing assignments 1 or 2 page drafts by july 15

Writing assignments: 1 or 2 page drafts by July 15

  • Overall vision & trends (Marvin, Jon, Dave F.)

    • Interference temperature--how do you do this?

    • Type certification

  • Network/ Protocol issues (Peter, Ozan)

  • Physical layer (channel, equalization, coding, radio architecture) (Jose’, Rohit, Patrick)

  • Hardware/platform issues (Asim, Dan, Raj)

  • -fixed/mobile

  • -power-constrained, not constrained

  • -Examples:

    • GM (not power-constrained, high mobility)

    • wearables (power-constrained, limited mobility)—already has context aware capability
