Details the paradigms of opportunistic spectrum sharing andwhite space access as effective means to satisfy increasing demandfor high-speed wireless communication and for novel wirelesscommunication applications

This book addresses opportunistic spectrum sharing and whitespace access, being particularly mindful of practicalconsiderations and solutions. In Part I, spectrum sharingimplementation issues are considered in terms of hardware platformsand software architectures for realization of flexible andspectrally agile transceivers. Part II addresses practicalmechanisms supporting spectrum sharing, including spectrum sensingfor opportunistic spectrum access, machine learning and decisionmaking capabilities, aggregation of spectrum opportunities, andspectrally-agile radio waveforms.      

Part III presents the ongoing work on policy and regulation forefficient and reliable spectrum sharing, including major recentsteps forward in TV White Space (TVWS) regulation and associatedgeolocation database approaches, policy management aspects, andnovel licensing schemes supporting spectrum sharing. In Part IV,business and economic aspects of spectrum sharing are considered,including spectrum value modeling, discussion of issues arounddisruptive innovation that are pertinent to opportunistic spectrumsharing and white space access, and business benefits assessment ofthe novel spectrum sharing regulatory proposal Licensed SharedAccess. Part V discusses deployments of opportunistic spectrumsharing and white space access solutions in practice, includingwork on TVWS system implementations, standardization activities,and development and testing of systems according to thestandards.

  • Discusses aspects of pioneering standards such as the IEEE802.22 “Wi-Far” standard, the IEEE 802.11af“White-Fi” standard, the IEEE Dynamic Spectrum AccessNetworks Standards Committee standards, and the ETSIReconfiguration Radio Systems standards
  • Investigates regulatory and regulatory-linked solutionsassisting opportunistic spectrum sharing and white space access,including geo-location database approaches and licensingenhancements
  • Covers the pricing and value of spectrum, the economic effectsand potentials of such technologies, and provides detailed businessassessments of some particularly innovative regulatoryproposals

The flexible and efficient use of radio frequencies is necessary tocater for the increasing data traffic demand worldwide. This bookaddresses this necessity through its extensive coverage ofopportunistic spectrum sharing and white space accesssolutions.

Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing and White Space Access: ThePractical Reality is a great resource fortelecommunication engineers, researchers, and students.
