Inclusion of Priority Access in a Privacy-preserving ESC-based DSA System
MetadataShow full item record
According to the Federal Communications Commission's rules and recommendations set forth for the 3.5 GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service, a three-tiered structure shall govern the newly established shared wireless band. The three tiers are comprised of three different levels of spectrum access; Incumbent Access, Priority Access and General Authorized Access. In accordance and fulfillment with this dynamic spectrum access framework, we present the inclusion of Priority Access tier into a two-tiered privacy-preserving ESC-based dynamic spectrum access system.
General Audience Abstract
With the development of wireless communication technologies, the number of wireless communication reliant applications has been increasing. Most of these applications require dedicated spectrum frequencies as communication channels. As such, the radio frequency spectrum, utilized and allocated for these wireless applications, is depleting. This problem can be alleviated by adopting dynamic spectrum access schemes. The current static spectrum allocation scheme assigns designated spectrum frequencies to specific users. This static frequency management approach leads to inefficient frequency utilization as the occupation of frequency channels may vary depending upon time periods. Dynamic spectrum access schemes allow unlicensed users opportunistic access to vacant spectrum spaces. Thus, the adoption of these spectrum sharing schemes will increase the efficiency of spectrum utilization, and slow down the spectrum depletion. However, the design and implementation of these schemes face different challenges. These spectrum sharing systems need to guarantee the privacy of the involved parties while maintaining specific functionalities required and recommended by the Federal Communications Commission. In this thesis, we present the inclusion of a three-tiered frame, approved by the Federal Communications Commission, into a privacy-preserving dynamic spectrum system.
