Abstract
Frequency spectrum scarcity is currently one of the mostly discussed topics in wireless communications. When there is no free spectrum available, no new broadband communication techniques can be put into operation. The double use of already assigned frequencies leads to interferences. A possible solution to the problem is Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA), realized through Cognitive Radio (CR) technology. Cognitive Radios have the ability to detect unused spectrum segments and to adapt to it dynamically. This adaptation does not only concern a change of frequency, but may also include changes in waveform, bandwidth, or whatever leads to an optimal communication link. This paper gives an overview of the state-of-the-art Cognitive Radio approaches and points out opportunities offered by this technology to overcome the threat of spectrum scarcity.
