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
