ABSTRACT Fourth-generation (4G) communication systems will likely support multiple capabilities while providing universal, high-speed access. One potential enabler for these capabilities is software-defined radio (SDR). When controlled by cognitive radio (CR) principles, the required waveform diversity is achieved through a synergistic union called CR-based SDR. This paper introduces a general framework for analyzing, characterizing, and implementing spectrally modulated, spectrally encoded (SMSE) signals within CR-based SDR architectures. Given orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is one 4G candidate signal, OFDM-based signals are collectively classified as SMSE since data modulation and encoding are applied in the spectral domain. The proposed framework provides analytic commonality and unification of multiple SMSE signals. Framework applicability and flexibility is demonstrated for candidate 4G signals by: 1) showing that resultant analytic expressions are consistent with published results and 2) presenting representative modeling and simulation results to reinforce practical utility

    ABSTRACT: Heterogeneous Networks is the integration of all existing networks under a single environment with an understanding between the functional operations and also includes the ability to make use of multiple broadband transport technologies and to support generalized mobility. It is a challenging feature for Heterogeneous networks to integrate several IP-based access technologies in a seamless way. The focus of this paper is on the requirements of a mobility management scheme for multimedia real-time communication services - Mobile Video Conferencing. Nowadays, the range of available wireless access network technologies includes cellular or wide-area wireless systems, such as cellular networks (GSM/GPRS/UMTS) or Wi-Max, local area Network or personal area wireless systems, comprising for example, WLAN (802.11 a/b/g) and Bluetooth. As the mobile video conferencing is considered, the more advanced mobile terminals are capable of having more than one interface active at the same time. In addition, the heterogeneity of access technologies and also the seamless flow of information will increase in the future, making the seamless integration of the access network a key challenge for mobility management in a heterogeneous network environment. Services must be provided to the user regardless of the particular access technology and also the type of service provider or the network used.

    ABSTRACT: An experimental design approach is used to determine which factors (design parameters) of spectrally modulated, spectrally encoded (SMSE) waveforms have the greatest impact on coexistence with other communication waveforms. The SMSE framework supports cognition-based, software defined radio (SDR) applications and is well-suited for coexistence analysis. For initial proof-of-concept, a two factor (parameter), three-level (value) experimental design technique is applied to a coexistent scenario to characterize SMSE waveform impact on direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) receiver performance. The experimental design methodology reliably captures factor-level sensitivities and identifies those factors having greatest impact on system coexistence behavior (bit error variation). Given these initial results and its effectiveness in other engineering fields, it is believed that experimental design may pave the way for developing more rigorous waveform design methods and allow more robust coexistence analysis of conventional, DSSS and SMSE waveforms.
