As we mentioned in our earlier post, the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) has published their white paper on spectrum sharing. Entitled "Spectrum Sharing Research and Development," it stated that spectrum sharing technologies hold great promise for enabling more efficient use of scarce spectrum resources. It also made the following key points:
- Underscored that investment in innovative spectrum technologies is essential to maintaining U.S.. economic leadership
- Advocated more public/private collaboration and R & D for spectrum sharing
- Recommended additional funding for cognitive radios, interference mitigation and wireless ad-hoc networks as key areas that “hold promising potential for rapidly expanding the state of spectrum sharing technology”
In particular, cognitive radio was one of the major technologies it focused on as having the potential to rapidly advance the state of spectrum sharing.
TIA is heavily involved in developing products and technology standards and works closely with the ITU, ISO and IEC.
