Policies for the Reconfiguration of Cognitive Wireless Infrastructures to 3G Radio Access Technologies
Source: University of Phoenix
The ceaseless evolution of wireless communications is reflected nowadays on the introduction of Beyond-3G (B3G) systems, characterized by the coexistence and cooperation of various Radio Access Technologies (RATs), over a common infrastructure. Major facilitator of this convergence is the advent of cognitive networks, which deploy elements (base stations and mobile terminals) that are able to proactively adapt to environmental stimuli, so that to optimize their performance. Part of the adaptation action takes place in cognitive base stations that own several reconfigurable transceivers, which are controlled by appropriate management functionality and may dynamically change their operating parameters.
