“Smart Sharing of Radio Electrical Spectrum”

Abstract: Usable portions of the radio spectrum are becoming scarcer with introduction and the evolution of the new wireless communications technologies.

This lecture is about how this standard works, considerations, application, and a vision of the future wireless communications that use a smart shared spectrum.
