Dynamic Spectrum Access Regulatory Models
The key conference in this area is the IEEE Dyspan (Dynamic Spectrum Access Network ). The purpose of the group is
" to expand collective understanding of complex next-generation wireless systems focused on using RF spectrum more efficiently and dynamically. This includes advancing both cutting edge technical and multidisciplinary research as well as practical experience related to building a healthy industry/regulatory ecosystem for the commercialization of smart radio system technologies.
As networks and devices increasingly gain intelligence and "cognitive" capabilities, and as regulators around the world seek to enhance spectrum utilization through exploiting areas such as "white spaces", dynamic decentralized access is becoming one of the most important, but most complex topics in wireless communications development. IEEE DySPAN 2010 will continue investigation of decentralized spectrum access and focus on approaches for highly scalable dynamic optimization of wireless spectrum use. "
There are several initiatives to further the Dynamic Spectrum Access effort. One is the Potential Alliance for World-wide Dynamic Spectrum Access by the New America Foundation. The group seeks to foster better working relationship between military, consumer, and public-safety groups.
