The combined use of multitaper estimation and wavelet thresholding has proved to be a very powerful digital- signal-processing algorithm in achieving the true power spectrum of signals that are peculiar to digital wireless communication systems and in ultimately carrying out accurate and repeatable power measurements. Nevertheless, the induced computational burden is too heavy. This paper mainly shows that GRID, which is currently one of the key technologies in deploying global-scale computing infrastructures, can make the aforementioned algorithm enforceable in a real-time context. A GRID computing-based approach for power measurement in digital wireless communication systems is proposed, which allows high levels of accuracy and repeatability in a significantly reduced measurement time. After a concise outline of the measurement algorithm, all of the adopted hardware and software strategies are described in detail. Major results concerning performance assessment and actual measurements are also given and discussed.
