  • The Wireless Spectrum Crunch

    One basic method of ensuring that interference does not occur among radio services operating close to each other in frequency and space is to separate these with a range of unused frequency, which is typically referred to as a guard band or as a_white space_between radio systems. A well‐known example of white space was employed in analogue television broadcasting, where a channel used in one geographic region was not used in neighboring regions. Another type of white space exists when a frequency range is simply not currently in use by a radio system. For example, a holder of a spectrum assignment might decide against deploying a service in a particular region, or they might not be operating at a particular time. Each of these types of white space represents spectrum that is underutilized, and raises the question of whether other radio technologies can operate in these white spaces while not harming incumbent users of the spectrum. Given the demand for, and value of, radio spectrum, exploiting this unused spectrum effectively and efficiently is a challenge that merits consideration. However, regardless of whether it is possible, the question remains whether it is practical and cost efficient to operate in a given white space. This chapter begins by providing historic and technical perspectives on the development of white space access technologies and then considers their application to various service models and the associated emerging standards. This chapter also explores the recent test‐trials of TV white space and discusses the challenges that face wide‐scale commercial deployment. In closing, this chapter considers the potential role of white space in the future 5G mobile standard.

  • Business modeling for TV white space networks

    Database-assisted TV white space network is a promising paradigm of dynamic spectrum sharing, and can effectively improve spectrum utilization and alleviate spectrum scarcity via centralized control of TV white space databases residing in the cloud. In this article, we discuss business modeling for a database-assisted TV white space network, which is very important for wide commercialization of this promising technology. Motivated by several recent business practices, we propose and study two types of different business models: spectrum market and information market. In the spectrum market model, spectrum licensees, through spectrum brokers acted by databases, lease the underutilized (licensed) TV channels to unlicensed wireless devices for secondary utilization. In the information market model, databases sell the advanced information regarding (unlicensed) TV channels to unlicensed wireless devices in order to enhance the secondary spectrum utilization performance. We outline the corresponding trading mechanism details for both market models, and evaluate the feasibility and performance of both models through theoretical and numerical studies. Numerical results indicate that both the database operator's profit and the total network profit can be significantly improved under properly designed trading mechanisms.

  • Dynamic spectrum access with prioritization in open spectrum wireless networks

    Dynamic spectrum access (DSA) is important for spectrum management in the future. DSA with prioritization for two types of radio systems are presented through analytical formulation. The DSA with prioritization model is solved numerically using a two-dimensional Markov chain. Grades of service (GoSs) like system airtime and blocking probabilities are considered. The performance of these GoS measures and the effect of the size of the number of frequency channels for DSA with prioritization are evaluated. Numerical results illustrate that the advantages of DSA with prioritization for one type radio system over another type of radio system.

  • Availability of TV White Spaces Using Spectrum Occupancy Information and Coverage Maps

    Radio Spectrum is the natural resource that allows the operation of radio services, such as Television, Mobile Telephony, and applications for Intelligent Transportation Services, Internet of Things, among others. The current allocation system is inefficient because assigned spectrum is not fully utilized by operators and cannot be accessed by any other user, despite its availability. Secondary spectrum usage is proposed as an alternative to optimize its use, allowing that a secondary user can access certain portion of spectrum allocated to primary service. In particular of TV service, this portion is known as TV White Space, TVWS. The most common models to identify available spectrum in TV service are based on frequency allocation and network planning information provided by TV operators, which are not enough to make an accurate estimation. A spectrum detection model built with traditional models and analysis of coverage maps obtained by simulations is presented, and applied in Cali - Colombia to establish how many TVWS are available, taking into account the effect that terrain has on the propagation of the service. The amount of TVWS detected increases using our model compared to TVWS identified only with traditional models.

  • Reliability-aware floorplanning for 3D circuits

    In this work, we propose a 3D module and de-cap (decoupling capacitance) placement algorithm that evenly distributes the thermal profile and reduces the power supply noise. We provide efficient algorithms for 3D thermal and power supply noise analysis to guide our 3D module placement process. In addition, we allocate white spaces around the modules that require decaps to suppress the power supply noise while minimizing the area overhead.

  • A guard band aggregation scheme for cognitive radio using TV white space

    Cognitive radio based wireless systems using TV white space have been attracting a lot of attentions. In the cognitive radio systems using TV white space, it is desirable to secure a control channel to exchange the information on the availability of white space and the frequency resource such as the frequency channel and the bandwidth. In addition, it is necessary to secure minimum frequency resource for communications if TV white space is unavailable even though TV white space is used on an opportunistic basis. In order to solve these problems, this paper proposes a guard band aggregation scheme, which aggregates the multiple guard bands between digital TV signals and uses them for a control channel and/or a communication channel. This paper shows the performance evaluation results of the digital TV signals when the guard band is used by the proposed scheme. Furthermore, it discusses the permissible transmitting power and occupied bandwidth to avoid the performance degradation of the digital TV signals.

  • Smart Receivers with Modular and Multifunctional Front-End Blocks: The Benefits of Using Programmable Modulators and Demodulators

    This article presents a technique to convert a standard TV receiver into an intelligent communication hub for smart home applications. The transformation of a standard TV receiver is achieved by introducing a modular front-end block, designed with a programmable modulator and demodulator based on the software-defined radio (SDR) concept. Programmable modulators and demodulators can receive different types of signals and transform one type of signal to another. A multifunctional front-end block will transform a standard TV receiver into a smart receiver.
