Workshop on Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio

11 May 2012, 12:34

The ECC organised a workshop in cooperation with the ’COST-TERRA’ research project. In addition ETSI took part in the workshop by coordinating a session dedicated to standardisation issues. More than 130 delegates heard about a wide range of industrial trials and initiatives, research work and regulatory progress towards enabling cognitive radio technology in Europe and elsewhere.

The workshop was arranged in five sessions. The first session on the first day was dedicated to the European and national CR/SDR regulation efforts. The following two sessions were dealt with a review of the state-of-the-art in European research and CR/SDR testing as well as practical implementation projects. Second day was arranged in the following way: the first session was coordinated by ETSI and dedicated to standardisation and industry specification issues. The second part of the day was dedicated to the considerations of regulatory efforts regarding CR/SDR outside Europe.

The Workshop went smoothly and finished successfully on the 3rd of May. The conclusion session was led by the ECO Director and attended by industry representatives with a particular focus to inform the ECC in taking forward its policy roadmap on cognitive radio, and to clarify its further workplan.
