    The policy of permanently assigning a frequency band to a single application has led to extremely low utilization of the available spectrum. Cognitive radio, with its ability to be both intelligent and frequency agile, is thought to be one of the prime contenders to provide the necessary capabilities needed for dynamic spectrum access systems. With this in mind, this paper discusses the practical ... View full abstract»

    Radio spectrum has been subject to national and international regulation almost from its earliest days. “Harmful interference” is a key concept used by regulators in determining whether the impact of a proposed change in permitted radio use is acceptable vis-á-vis incumbent users. While the definition of harmful interference may have been adequate when it was first adopted de... View full abstract»

    When different stakeholders share a common resource, such as the case in spectrum sharing, security and enforcement become critical considerations that affect the welfare of all stakeholders. Recent advances in radio spectrum access technologies, such as cognitive radios, have made spectrum sharing a viable option for significantly improving spectrum utilization efficiency. However, those technolo... View full abstract»

    Cognitive radio has been widely considered as one of the prominent solutions to tackle the spectrum scarcity. While the majority of existing research has focused on single-band cognitive radio, multiband cognitive radio represents great promises toward implementing efficient cognitive networks compared to single-based networks. Multiband cognitive radio networks (MB-CRNs) are expected to significa... View full abstract»

    The prospects for and the state of the art of adaptable RF hardware are reviewed, focusing primarily on the traditional frequency planning bottleneck, the filtering stages. First, a case is made that even banded systems can be greatly impacted by a modest amount of tuning. This is done by showing the results of a traditional fixed system in an unlicensed band upgraded with a programmable front-end... View full abstract»

    Increasing the spatial reuse of frequency spectrum by deploying more access points has historically been the most effective means to improve the capacity of any cellular communication network. Today's mobile networks face a proliferation of data services and overall demand for data traffic that has been strongly increasing over several years. As a result, increasing network capacity through the de... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to present a vision for future mobile and wireless networks. The vision, which we call Networks without Borders (NwoB), is based on a marketplace of virtual network operators which construct networks from a pool of shared resources (e.g., base stations, spectrum, core network components, cloud resources, processing capabilities, etc.). The resources will be sourced fro... View full abstract»
