Cognitive Radio Standardization-initiative - From FP7 research to global standards

Cognitive Radio Standardization-initiative - From FP7 research to global standards

Objective

Research into cognitive radio systems has matured and many FP7 projects and initiatives have provided proof of concept implementations, demonstrators and showcases. But to date, there are only few standards that may be used as benchmark for the type approval or the certification of the operation of CR equipment and they are rather incomplete and fairly fragmented.
Within this perspective, the scope of Cognitive Radio Standardization initiative (CRS-i) is to coordinate and support existing and future FP7 projects and to facilitate the exploitation of their results by establishing a concentrated approach to Cognitive Radio Systems standardisation. This also includes removing barriers and ensuring the efficient participation of EU research in the global CR standardization process. The proposed Coordination Action has the following three strategic objectives:
-Offer a consultancy service on standardization to FP7 projects addressing Cognitive Radio, Dynamic Spectrum Access and Coexistence issues;-Extend and coordinate standardization activities of the ongoing Call 4 & Call 5 projects beyond the projects lifetime, namely FP7 QoSMOS, FP7 COGEU, FP7 SACRA and FP7 OneFIT;-Reinforce the collaboration of FP7 projects with USA and Japan's "cognitive radio stakeholders" and ensure that Europe will be able to turn the research outcomes into standard compliant products .
To achieve these objectives, CRS-i will utilize and implement a range of instruments. Most notably is the creation of a Standardization Consultancy Service that will be used by current and future FP7 projects on CR as a tool to facilitate the pull through of EU research results from concept, to invention and through the standards processes. Other instrument will be the creation of a CRS project cluster within the FP7 Radio Access and Spectrum cluster (RAS), as a forum in which synergies and standardization priorities among FP7 projects are identified and facilitated.
