My Master's students use ideas from my (Jeff Funk) forthcoming book (Technology Change and the Rise of New Industries) to analyze the economic and technical feasibility of cognitive radio. See my other slides for details on concepts, methodology, and other new industries.

2. cognitive/kgntv [kog-ni-tiv] adjectiveAlbert SalimA0026151W1. of or pertaining to cognition.2. of or pertaining to the mental processes ofperception, memory, judgment, and reasoning, ascontrasted with emotional and volitional processes. Tan How Ho Kai HongBoon, Jason A0076866LA0077139XGroupradioMembers /redio/ [rey-dee-oh] - noun1. wireless telegraphy or telephony: speechesbroadcast by radio.2. an apparatus for receiving or transmitting radiobroadcasts.

Cognitive Radio Where are we today? Cognitive Radio So whats next? 3 4. 41 Radio-communication 101 andspectrum usage 5. CURRENT PARADIGM - SPECTRUMRadio waves can travel quite a distance and, are able to disturb othercommunications services resulting in interference This makes the radio spectrum a scarce natural resource Provides us with technical standards, Recommendations and procedures to solve the above mentioned problem. Assign licenses to users. Gives an exclusive right to operate on a specific frequency in a specific location or geographic area Compliance of spectrum users with the license obligations is monitored and enforced. 5 Thus, avoiding interference seems to be a question of proper planning and coordination, and using the right equipment. 6. EVOLUTION OF RADIO 1.Hardware driven radios:Transmit frequencies, modulation type andother radio frequency (RF) parameters aredetermined by hardware and cannot bechanged without hardware changes. 2. Digital radios: A digital radio performs part of the signal processing or transmission digitally, but is not programmable in the field3. Software Defined Radios:All functions, modes and applications can 6be configured and reconfigured bysoftware 7. RADIO SPECTRUM: THE UNSEEN GOLD Common Frequency Band AM radio - 535 kHz to 1.7 kHz Short wave radio - bands from 5.9 to 26.1 MHz Television stations - 54 to 88 MHz for channels 2 - 6 FM radio - 88 to 108 MHz Television stations - 174 to 220 MHz for channels 7 - 13 Other Frequency Uses Garage door openers - Around 40 MHz Standard cordless phones: Bands from 40 to 50 MHz Baby monitors: 49 MHz Radio controlled airplanes: Around 72 MHz Radio controlled cars: Around 75 MHz Wildlife tracking collars: 215 to 220 MHz Cell phones: 800 to 900 MHz Air traffic control radar: 960 to 1,215 MHz GPS: 1.227 & 1.575 GHz Deep space radio communications: 2.290 to 2.3 GHz7 8.

IMPROVEMENT IN EASE OF USE Device is aware of users goals and priorities, and capable ofautonomously adjusting its operation to simplify the tasks and relieveuser from burden of manual intervention.Cellular servicesWiFi servicesA home Wifi network is now available, Id switch over since this is lower cost / higher userpreference 15 16. IMPROVEMENT IN ADAPTABILITY Device adapts automatically to local environment. When userroams across borders, the device performs self-adjustment to stayin compliance with local radio operations and emissionsregulations.16 17. IMPROVEMENT IN INTERCONNECTIVITY Cognitive radio enables ease of communications among multi-terminal / multi-frequency communication devices.17 18. IMPROVEMENT IN SCALABILITY Devices communicate in the form of collaboration among neighbordevices via a series of hops. The network can potentially scale tolarge numbers of users.HelloCR enables users to communicateHiwith each other directly withouttransmitting over infrastructure HiCR enables users to communicate with each18other in the form of collaboration amongneighbor devices via a series of hops 19. IMPROVEMENT IN RELIABILITY CRs self-configuring mesh wireless networks avoid disruption orfailure by re-routing around node failures or congestion areas,thereby enabling more robust and reliable communications. 19 20.
