Design, Deployment and Performance of an Open Source Spectrum Access System
MetadataShow full item record
Spectrum sharing is possible, but lacks R & D support for practical solutions that satisfy both the incumbent and secondary or opportunistic users. The author found a lack of an openly available framework supporting experimental research on the performance of a Spectrum Access System (SAS) and propose to build an open-source Software Defined Radio (SDR) based framework. This framework will test different dynamic spectrum scenarios in a wireless testbed. This thesis presents our Spectrum Access System prototype, discusses the design choices and trade-offs and provides a proof of concept implementation. We show that an Internet-accessible CORNET test bed provides the ideal platform for developing and testing the SAS functionality and its building blocks and offerss the hardware and software as a community resource for research and education. This design provides the necessary interfaces for researchers to develop and test their SAS-related modules, waveforms and scenarios.
