Abstract

This contribution focuses on the context of massively heterogeneous wireless communication systems and details new enabling mechanisms for guaranteeing an efficient usage of the available resources: Building on the known concept of a Cognitive Pilot Channel (CPC), the user is enabled to obtain a User Class dependent Virtual Connectivity Map (VCM) and is thus able to build on a-priori knowledge of the surrounding wireless framework for ahead planning of optimum horizontal/vertical handovers. Furthermore, it is illustrated how statistical modeling is exploited for characterizing the typical behavior of various communication systems, for example in the TV White Spaces (TVWS); the latter approach enables a statistical evaluation of the expected reliability and longevity of a radio link operated as secondary user. Finally, an Incentive Based Distributed Sensing concept is introduced which introduces a context dependent rewarding system for motivating Mobile Devices (MD) to contribute to a collaborative radio context sensing effort.
