What is a cognitive radio network?
Cognitive radio (CR) is a form of wireless communication in which a transceiver can intelligently detect which communication channels are in use and which ones are not. The transceiver then instantly moves into vacant channels, while avoiding occupied ones.
What are the basic types of cognitive radio networks?
Depending on transmission and reception parameters, there are two main types of cognitive radio:
- Full Cognitive Radio (Mitola radio), in which every possible parameter observable by a wireless node (or network) is considered.
- Spectrum-Sensing Cognitive Radio, in which only the radio-frequency spectrum is considered.
What is cognitive radio in 5G?
Cognitive radio (CR) is an attractive research area for 4G/5G wireless communication systems, which enables unlicensed users to access the spectrum. Delivering higher spectral efficiency, supporting the higher number of users, and achieving higher coverage and th…
What is the need of SDR?
An SDR performs significant amounts of signal processing in a general purpose computer, or a reconfigurable piece of digital electronics. The goal of this design is to produce a radio that can receive and transmit a new form of radio protocol just by running new software.
What are the benefits of cognitive radio?
Cognitive radio helps:
- Overcome radio spectrum scarcity.
- Avoid intentional radio jamming scenarios.
- Switch to power saving protocol.
- Improve satellite communications.
- Improves quality of service (QoS)
What can I listen to with SDR?
You can do various different things using an SDR as follows:
- Receive broadcast radio.
- Amateur radio.
- Radio astronomy.
- Track ships via AIS transmissions.
- Track aircraft via Mode S transmissions.
- Set up a DRM transmitter.
- Build a GSM network.
- Experiment with LTE.
What is SDR and how it works?
The Special Drawing Right (SDR) is an interest-bearing international reserve asset created by the IMF in 1969 to supplement other reserve assets of member countries. The SDR is based on a basket of international currencies comprising the U.S. dollar, Japanese yen, euro, pound sterling and Chinese Renminbi.
