A Middleware Framework for Communication in Cognitive Radio Networks
Blekinge Institute of Technology, School of Computing2010 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
Cognitive radio networks are expected to address and resolve important operational challenges such as opportunistic spectrum access, spectrum and network heterogeneities and requests for the provision of diverse Quality-of-Service (QoS) for different applications. Accordingly, a number of network functionalities are required to take into account these challenges towards the efficient management of cognitive radio networks. This paper advances a new architecture for the management of cognitive radio networks. The architecture is designed and developed at the application layer and incorporates sensing and prediction, addressing and routing, middleware and decision making. Accordingly, a number of management functions are required to address the challenges associated with the management of cognitive radio networks. The paper provides an analysis of these components as well.
