19th Work Meeting: Experimental Facilities for Robust Wireless Solutions

29 October 2015 at imec – Leuven

How open wireless experimental facilities can help to develop robust wireless solutions

Wireless solutions often experience reduced performance , due to inefficient spectrum usage, competition with other wireless solutions or due to interference. More intelligent configurations based on the cognitive radio concept can boost wireless performance.

This workshop will show what cognitive radio is, and showcase experiments on existing open test-beds. Additionally it will be illustrated what shared spectrum access and dynamic spectrum access are.

This wireless community event is co-organized by 2 large European projects in the area of Future Internet Research and Experimentation: Cognitive Radio Experimentation World ( CREW) and Federation for Future Internet Research and Experimentation (Fed4Fire).

The programma includes both oral presentations and demos.
