Wireless multimedia applications require significant bandwidth, some of which will be provided by third-generation (3G) services. Even with substantial investment in 3G infrastructure, the radio spectrum allocated to 3G will be limited. Cognitive radio offers a mechanism for the flexible pooling of radio spectrum using a new class of protocols called formal radio etiquettes. This approach could expand the bandwidth available for conventional uses (e.g. police, fire and rescue) and extend the spatial coverage of 3G in a novel way. Cognitive radio is a particular extension of software radio that employs model-based reasoning about users, multimedia content, and communications context. This paper characterizes the potential contributions of cognitive radio to spectrum pooling and outlines an initial framework for formal radio-etiquette protocols
