the 21 st century. ireless communications has emerged as one of the largest sectors of the telecommunications ,industry, evolving from a niche business in the last decade to one of the most promising areas for growth in the 21st cenW tury. This article explores some of the key technological advances and approaches that are now emerging as core components(More)
This paper contains measured data for 2.5 & 60 GHz in-building partition loss. Path loss measurements were recorded using a broadband sliding correlator channel sounder which recorded over 39,000 Power Delay Profiles (PDPs) in 22 separate locations in a modern office building. Transmitters and receivers were separated by distances ranging from 3.5 to 27.4(More)
An antenna array is overloaded when the number of cochannel signals in its operating environment exceeds the number of elements. Conventional space-time array processing for narrow-band signals fails in overloaded environments. Overloaded array processing (OAP) is most difficult when signals impinging on the array are near equal power, have tight excess(More)
Cognitive radio (CR) is an enabling technology for numerous new capabilities such as dynamic spectrum access, spectrum markets, and self-organizing networks. To realize this diverse set of applications, CR researchers leverage a variety of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. To help researchers better understand the practical implications of AI to(More)
In this paper, we show how cognitive radio can help minimize energy consumption of a wireless mobile communication device. We propose an energy optimization framework using cognitive radio for a given quality of service requirement based on the channel and the radio capabilities. The cognitive radio not only adjusts modulation, coding, and radiated power,(More)
