The concept of the WRAN software uses the IEEE 802.22 frame structure for prototyping to make use of super
frames and preambles for cognitive channel management, which allows a dynamic resource allocation between
base stations, but also between multiple users at one base station. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple
Access (OFDMA) is used in the upper layers, as Modulation techniques QPSK, 16-QAM and 64-QAM is
The software will support a connection-oriented MAC layer with cognitive functionality for dynamic and adaptive scheduling and management of coexistence of base stations in the same time-frequency domain (superframes). The software is written in C++ using liquid-dsp libraries and includes a WEB Waterfall Spectrum based on RFC 6455 to monitor HF activity remotely.
