Features

  • Provides a comprehensive view of cognitive radio, dynamic spectrum access, and cognitive wireless networks
  • Covers a broad range of topics, from the physical layer to protocol layer
  • Examines concepts, techniques, protocols, regulations, standards, recent advances, and system implementations
  • Considers routing, medium access control, cooperation schemes, resource management, mobility, and game theory approach

Summary

While still in the early stages of research and development, cognitive radio is a highly promising communications paradigm with the ability to effectively address the spectrum insufficiency problem. Written by those pioneering the field, Cognitive Radio Networks: Architectures, Protocols, and Standards offers a complete view of cognitive radio—including introductory concepts, fundamental techniques, regulations, standards, system implementations, and recent developments.

From the physical layer to protocol layer, world-class editors provide comprehensive technical and regulatory guidance across cognitive radio, dynamic spectrum access, and cognitive wireless networks. The book examines routing, Medium Access Control (MAC), cooperation schemes, resource management, mobility, and game theory approach. Organized into three sections for ease of reference:

  1. Introduces and addresses the issues in the physical layer, including sensing, capacity, and power control
  2. Examines issues in the protocol layers and supplies practical solutions
  3. Explores applications, including cognitive radio systems

Complete with illustrative figures that allow for complete cross-referencing, this authoritative reference provides readers with the understanding of the fundamental concepts, principles, and framework of cognitive wireless systems needed to initiate the development of future-generation wireless systems and networks.
