Abstract

Wireless communication is facing several challenges, including spectrum scarcity, deployment delays, and formation and management of dynamic networks. Cognitive radios (CRs) will help address these challenges, but only if they reason about policies to guide their behavior. Policies are sets of declarative statements with an unambiguous semantics. Policy engines (PEs) are software components that reason with policies so that a particular communication device, or network of devices, obeys a given set of policies during its operation.

XG Policy Control

The vision of radically increased spectrum usage through XG-enabled radios requires regulatory bodies and spectrum holders to be convinced that the radios will follow rules and policies. This project will develop an expressive and extensible policy language with executable semantics, for describing policies that meet the needs of a wide variety of spectrum regulation bodies. We will also develop efficient reasoning algorithms to reason about policy compliance during radio operation.
