CRN@NGNI Develops Cognitive Extensions For OpenEPC

News from Aug. 31, 2011

Fraunhofer FOKUS' CRN@NGNI group develops cognitive enhancements to the OpenEPC enabling integration with upcoming dynamic spectrum access systems. Grounding on several years of experience in the field and being at the forefront of standardization, the CRN@NGNI group augments the OpenEPC to realize new and appealing concepts such as distributed spectrum sensing, cognitive spectrum management and utilization of white space geolocation databases for sharing spectrum, and to verify these in real world applications.

Additionally, evaluating novel concepts, such as the self-growing paradigm invented by Fraunhofer FOKUS in the context of self-organization and machine-to-machine communication will become feasible. The cognitive enhancements to the OpenEPC are the first application of the ongoing development of the openCTK generic cognitive toolkit aiming to enable existing wireless communication systems to benefit from state-of-the-art developments in the area of cognitive radio networks and self-organization.
