out under controlled conditions verified the validity of the proposed architecture, besides establishing its capacity for maximum spectrum utilisation and minimum fragmentation under a fixed-price trading policy.
This paper elaborates on the design and implementation of a prototype system architecture enabling for TVWS exploitation by LTE Advanced systems, under the real time secondary spectrum market policy. It describes a centralised infrastructure-based cognitive radio network, where dynamic TVWS allocation among unlicensed systems is administrated by a spectrum… (More)
– The paper discusses the TV white spaces exploitation by a prototype centralised cognitive radio network architecture, under the real time secondary spectrum management scheme. Vital part of this architecture is a spectrum broker that coordinates the radio resources allocation process among secondary systems, as well as the transactions of spectrum trading… (More)
—The paper presents an infrastructure-based cognitive radio network architecture that enables for TV white spaces exploitation, QoS provisioning and policy management, under the real time secondary spectrum market policy. It describes the configuration of a spectrum broker that coordinates the radio resource management process (RRM) among LTE secondary… (More)
This paper presents an assessment method for fast and quantified estimation of the Perceived Quality of Service (PQoS) for homogeneous MPEG-4 video content, enabling optimized utilization of the corresponding storage and bandwidth resources. Besides, the Mean Perceived Quality of Service (MPQoS) as a function of the video encoding rate is introduced and… (More)
The convergence of different networking infrastructures and the integration of fixed, mobile and broadcasting technologies is the new era in telecommunications. This paper describes the design, implementation and testing of a network architecture able to integrate DVB-T broadcasting technology for the downlink with GSM and LMDS access technologies for the… (More)
This chapter proposes a novel concept towards the deployment of a networked 'Media Ecosystem'. The proposed solution is based on a flexible cooperation between providers, operators, and end-users, finally enabling every user first to access the offered multimedia services in various contexts, and second to share and deliver his own audiovisual content… (More)
