Location awareness is one of the essential characteristics of cognitive radios. In this paper, an innovative cognitive positioning system (CPS) that achieves accuracy adaptation in both indoor and outdoor environments is proposed as a step towards realization of location awareness in cognitive radios. The proposed CPS is composed of two modes; bandwidth(More)
— Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) is gaining recognition as a viable alternative for the delivery of video by telecommunications and cable companies. It features bandwidth efficiencies, and management; therefore, it is ideally suited for broadcast, multicast, unicast interactive and multimedia services (IMS-IP multimedia). Core networks are(More)
—Cognitive Radio (CR) systems with spectrum awareness feature is a promising approach to use spectrum effectively. However, accurate modeling of spectrum utilization is crucial for the development and performance evaluation of such systems. Hence, in this paper, a wideband multidimensional spectrum occupancy measurement campaign is conducted to study the(More)
In this paper, we proposed a cognitive radio (CR) implementation by using standard wireless communication laboratory equipments such as signal generator and spectrum analyzer. Equipments are controlled through MATLAB instrument control toolbox to carry out CR capabilities specified by IEEE 802.22 WRAN standard. Energy detection and maximum minimum(More)
— In this letter, fundamental limits on time delay estimation are studied for cognitive radio systems, which facilitate opportunistic use of spectral resources. First, a generic Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) expression is obtained in the case of unknown channel coefficients and carrier-frequency offsets (CFOs) for cognitive radio systems with dispersed(More)
Time-delay estimation is studied for cognitive radio systems, which facilitate opportunistic use of spectral resources. A two-step approach is proposed to obtain accurate time-delay estimates of signals that occupy multiple dispersed bands simultaneously, with significantly lower computational complexity than the optimal maximum likelihood (ML) estimator.(More)
—Opportunistic spectrum access feature of cognitive radio systems is a method to improve frequency underutilization of wireless spectrum. One of the techniques for detecting the unused bands is the energy detection for which selection of the threshold defines detection performance. In this paper, the adaptive threshold method is proposed as an alternative(More)
—Cognitive radio with spectrum sharing feature is a promising technique to address the spectrum under-utilization problem in dynamically changing environments. In this paper, achievable capacity gain of spectrum sharing systems over dynamic fading environments is studied. For the analysis, a theoretical fading model called hyper fading model that is(More)
