CogNeA Updates

(link) CogNeA is pushing their standard into ECMA.

CogNeA contributed its specification to Ecma’s TC48-TG1 that will further develop it and plans to finalise the 1st edition for publication by the end of 2009. The Standard comprises Physical (PHY) and Medium Access Control (MAC) layers that include interference-avoidance mechanisms. The Physical layer, interference-avoidance and cognitive radio technologies, will be specified such that other wireless networking standards, looking to operate in the TV whitespaces, can use it.

(link) Wi-Rider is a new Georgia Tech spin-out that looks like it’s coupling a REM-like collection of databases with a networked centralized manager for radio resources. Here’s their tech brief. Based on their website’s presentation, I think this is intended as a piece of CogNeA.
