Abstract

Automatic network recognition offers a promising framework for the integration of the cognitive concept at the network layer. This work addresses the problem of automatic classification of technologies operating in the ISM band, with particular focus on Wi-Fi vs. Bluetooth recognition. The proposed classifier is based on feature extraction related to time-varying patterns of packet sequences, i.e. MAC layer procedures, and adopts different linear classification algorithms. Results of classification confirmed the ability to reveal both technologies based on Mac layer feature identification.
