Cognitive Radio, Software Defined Radio, and Adaptive Wireless Systems

  • Hüseyin Arslan


  • Covers a topic which is extremely hot right now both in academia and research communities, and industries, due to the recent regulation progress made and further thoughts in the USA within the FCC and the SDR working group

  • The chapters represent a harmony

  • Covers issues related to physical layer and upper layers (MAC, networking, etc) as well as applications

  • Self-contained and serves both as a rapid introduction and a reference book that can be used by a varied audience as well as in classrooms

About this book


Today’s wireless services have come a long way since the roll out of the conventional voice-centric cellular systems. The demand for wireless access in voice and high rate data multi-media applications has been increasing. New generation wireless communication systems are aimed at accommodating this demand through better resource management and improved transmission technologies.

The interest in increasing Spectrum Access and improving Spectrum Efficiency combined with both the introduction of Software Defined Radios and the realization that machine learning can be applied to radios has created new intriguing possibilities for wireless radio researchers.

This book is aimed to discuss the cognitive radio, software defined radio (SDR), and adaptive radio concepts from several aspects. Cognitive radio and cognitive networks will be investigated from a broad aspect of wireless communication system enhancement while giving special emphasis on better spectrum utilization. Applications of cognitive radio, SDR and cognitive radio architectures, spectrum efficiency and soft spectrum usage, adaptive wireless system design, measurements and awareness of various parameters including interference temperature and geo-location information are some of the important topics that will be covered in this book.

Cognitive Radio, Software Defined Radio, and Adaptive Wireless Systems is intended to be both an introductory technology survey/tutorial for beginners and an advanced mathematical overview intended for technical professionals in the communications industry, technical managers, and researchers in both academia and industry.
