Emerging Commercial Wireless and Cognitive Radio Standards Tutorial


Presented by James Neel, Cognitive Radio Technologies, LLC, USA

Rather than converging to a common protocol, the number of wireless standards continues to explode. While SDR is enables the move to multimode devices (even octo-mode devices), just staying abreast of all of the standards is a full time job. This tutorial is intended to help the audience keep track of the wireless world by briefly touching on critical aspects of emerging wireless standards. With particular emphasis given to the TV White Space standards, planned topics include:

• TV White Space Standards (802.22, 802.11af, CogNeA, 802.16h)

• Cellular standards (3GPP/3GPP2, cdma2000, TD-SCDMA, LTE, WiMAX)

• Wireless LAN standards (802.11 a/b/g/n, fast roaming, mesh, 802.11y, vertical handoffs)

• Wireless PAN standards (Zigbee, WiMedia, Bluetooth, WiBree, Wireless USB)

• Next Generation Cellular Standards (802.16j, 802.16m, LTE-Advanced)

• Satellite deployments (Iridium, GlobalStar, INMARSAT)

• Underlying communications theory of emerging standards (OFDM, MIMO, Antenna Array Systems)

Note: A version of this tutorial is updated and given every year at VT's conference and normally runs about 4 hours. See http://crtwireless.com/EWS_09.html for the 2009 version.
