Abstract
A vertically integrated approach is presented to evaluate
the performance of cognitive radio (CR) systems.
The approach consists of three pillars:
measurement, modeling, and emulation (MME).
This integrated approach enables the reproduction of the
radio environment in laboratory conditions and aims to
guarantee the same performance results as one would
obtain in the field. This article provides a detailed explanation
for each pillar along with state-of-the-art overviews.
Finally, a test bed based on the MME approach is
presented.
