MetadataShow full item record
This chapter aims at identifying the main design and operation constraints, that smart environments are expected to experience within a 5G wireless/mobile network and how these constraints can be addressed using cognitive radio networks. This chapter first provides a general description of 5G wireless/mobile networks and stresses their role in the future wireless communications with emphasis given on smart environments. Then, the smart environments are presented based on their architecture characteristic and the applications associated with their operation. In addition, an overview of various current standards related to IoT applications is presented followed by the concept of cognitive radio networks and the available experimental platforms stressing the benefits of employing this technology in the future 5G wireless/mobile networks. Finally, the research challenges associated with integrating 5G wireless/mobile networks and IoT are outlined.
