Decentralized spectrum and radio resource management enabled by an on-demand Cognitive Pilot Channel

Abstract

This paper presents a framework to achieve an efficient dynamic and decentralized spectrum and radio resource usage in heterogeneous wireless network scenarios. The envisaged technical solution follows a layered approach, where Joint Radio Resource Management (JRRM) and Advanced Spectrum Management (ASM) mechanisms are identified at both intra and inter-operator level. The importance of cognitive network functionalities is highlighted. An on-demand Cognitive Pilot Channel (CPC) is proposed as a radio enabler solution for a decentralized operation with decision making processes executed at the mobile terminal side. The suitability of the proposed solution is shown by comparison with a broadcast CPC approach.
