This networking session, organized by COST IC0905 TERRA and EU FP7 EUWB projects, will address regulatory stakes, socio-economic aspects, business models, technological opportunities and commercialization showstoppers of cognitive radio technologies.
Cognitive radio (CR) has the potential to become an important breakthrough in the wireless field, yet the legal and regulatory aspects concerning its introduction are far from resolved. The session will review global CR standards and issues such as deployment, co-existence with incumbent services, and the economic aspects of its regulation. The latest CR-related R&D activities (such as FP7 projects EUWB, QosMOS, CogEU, QUASAR, FARAMIR and COST Action IC0902) will be showcased and future R&D challenges for cognitive radio technologies discussed. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of multi-domain research issues required for CR development and to facilitate wider participation in new research opportunities offered by FP7 calls.
