Abstract
Currently, the IEEE Standards Association is
very active in the framework of cognitive radio
with an aim to provide a bridge between research
results, implementation, and widespread deployment
of this new communication paradigm. This
article reports recent developments within the
IEEE Dynamic Spectrum Access Network Standards
Committee1 on dynamic spectrum access
networks with particular consideration of IEEE
1900.6, “Spectrum Sensing Interfaces and Data
Structures for Dynamic Spectrum Access and
Other Advanced Radio Communication Systems.”
It outlines the current structure of the
IEEE 1900.6 standard and its relationship with
other related standardization activities. We provide
application scenarios and topology briefly,
and discuss open research issues that raise future
challenges to the standardization community.
