—In the Software Radio context, the parametrization is becoming an important topic especially when it comes to multi-standard designs. This paper capitalizes on the Common Operator technique to present new common structures for the FFT and FEC decoding algorithms. A key benefit of exhibiting common operators is the regular architecture it brings when(More)
Cognitive radio has been an active research area in wireless communications over the past 10 years. TV Digital Switch Over resulted in new regulatory regimes, which offer the first large-scale opportunity for cognitive radio and networks. This article considers the most recent regulatory rules for TV White Space opportunistic usage, and proposes(More)

Opportunistic use of White Spaces (WS) has opened up a whole new paradigm in research on cognitive radio (CR). One of the issues addressed by the QoSMOS project is the design of a flexible and efficient physical layer (PHY) for CR systems. To this aim, different modulation techniques are being investigated and are presented in this paper. They fulfill the(More)
Regulators around the world are currently setting rules and requirements that will allow for mass-market access to TV White Spaces. It is expected that the opening of those frequency bands to the consumer market will lead to a dramatic increase of spectrum exploitation efficiency in highly appealing frequency bands: In Europe, the frequency bands between(More)
