Virtual Cognitive Base Station: Enhancing Software-Based Virtual Router Architecture With Cognitive Radio
AMPHIBIA is a framework which enables dynamic virtual network provisioning over wired and wireless networks for providing diverse services by coordinated reconfiguration in both sides of wired and wireless networks, exploiting the emerging network virtualization and cognitive radio technologies. AMPHIBIA introduces a new concept of a virtual Cognitive Base Station (vCBS), a cognitive base station built on the virtualized infrastructure. The target applications of AMPHIBIA include flexible and rapid deployment of mobile services, end-to-end QoS, efficient wireless and wired resource utilization, and green networking. In prior work, the authors proposed a basic framework design of AMPHIBIA and a service model.
