Abstract
The IEEE 802.22 is a new cognitive radio standard that is aimed at extending wireless outreach to rural areas. Known as wireless regional area networks, and designed based on the not-to-interfere spectrum sharing model, WRANs are channelized and centrally controlled networks working on the under-utilized UHF/VHF TV bands to establish communication with remote users, so-called customer premises equipment (CPEs). Despite the importance of reliable and interference-free operation in these frequencies, spectrum sensing fusion mechanisms suggested in IEEE 802.22 are rudimentary and fail to satisfy the stringent mandated sensing requirements. Other deep-rooted shortco...
