Cognitive Radio (CR) and Software Defined Radio (SDR) have been researched for decades. Their advancement was initially driven by military and public safety interoperability requirements. Now, another important factor is the commercial desire to more effectively manage poorly allocated spectrum and offer new consumer and industrial systems.
While CR/SDR were initially widely thought of as a solution to interoperability problems, they have been quietly embedded into current and emerging standards-based wireless systems (e.g., 802.11n, LTE, WiMax, IMT-A) and are enabling new categories of sensor and mesh networks. Commercial applications have risen up to be a major force in CR and SDR developments.
Join the WCA Cognitive Radio SIG at this exciting and informative event where a deeply experienced panel of experts will address the commercial and practical status of Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio technologies.
Moderator: -- Dr. Lloyd Nirenberg, Shannon Bayes Company & founding co-chair of the WCA Cognitive Radio SIG
Panelists: -- Steve Goldberg, Ph.D. (Venrock) will focus on what has constrained the technology in the past and what market demands we might expect moving forward. -- Dr. Ahmad Bahai (Fellow & CTO, Wireless and Information Appliance Group, National Semiconductor) will review some optimal statistical channel search and selection techniques to support effective spectral use and describe new architectures for software radio and mixed signal processing circuits. -- Dr. Andrea Goldsmith (Professor, Electrical Engineering, Stanford University) will survey the CR/SDR technologies, describe some of the design and regulatory challenges behind them, and survey some recent innovations in wireless technology that may provide breakthroughs in commercializing smart radios.
Please plan to join us on Tuesday November 9th at QUALCOMM Santa Clara for what promises to be an interesting and informative panel. Seating at this event is limited! Register now for this exciting event! Please note that Early Registration ends October 31st.
