Keynote presentation: Will large-scale white space networks work? Experience from IEEE 802.22 evaluation

Speaker: Przemek Pawelczak

Company/ Institute: UCLA/Fraunhofer

Event: Advances on Cognitive Radio Technology in Flanders

Date: 4 October 2011


Research on Cognitive Radio marks its twelfth anniversary (measured from the publication of the seminal paper by Mitola and Maguire Jr in 1999).
In this talk we will start with a historical look at the progress in Cognitive/White Space radio implementations. Then, we will give insight on the operation of IEEE 802.22 – Wireless Regional Access Networks working in the TV white spaces – showing what are their strengths and vulnerabilities.
Finally we will discuss some interesting applications for white space radio, in particular to bio- and neuro-engineering.
