Nicola Baldo Bheemarjuna Reddy Tamma BS Manoj Ramesh Rao Michele Zorzi
Abstract: In this paper, we present an application of the cognitive networking paradigm to the problem of dynamic channel selection in infrastructured wireless networks. We first discuss some of the key challenges associated with the cognitive control of wireless networks. Then we introduce our solution, in which a Neural Network-based cognitive engine learns how environmental measurements and the status of the network affect the performance experienced on different channels, and can therefore dynamically select the channel ...
