Cognitive Radios have emerged as one the most promising methods to increase wireless system efficiency through dynamic spectrum access combined with other cross-layer optimization methods. Most of the research prototypes and demonstrations have so far focused on either general platforms or scenarios that are predominantly taken from military or emergency communications domain. In this demonstration we show the prototype environment that is build around realistic home networking scenarios. The demonstration has two purposes. First, it demonstrates how a set of different implemented and integrated components can achieve local area optimization both in frequency allocation and other domains. Second, it shows the viability and attractiveness of cognitive radio methods for future commercial home networking devices. The demonstration showcases dynamic spectrum allocation and policy based behavioral changes in a home environment, where several multimedia stream and data communication connections are competing against each other.
