Target Audience

This report is written for a wide population of researches, technical and sales staff involved in the developing of the Cognitive Radio technologies, particular in the White Spaces environment to enhance M2M communications. It is recommended for both service providers and vendors that are working with related technologies.


The value in machines having wireless communications has long been understood and a large market is predicted for many years. That this has not transpired yet has been because of the difficulty of meeting all the requirements within the constraints of the available radio spectrum.

These constraints changed significantly with the advent of White Space (WS) availability.

The report concentrates on the development of White Spaces communications as one of the first technologies that utilizes properties of reconfigurable radio. It shows that the combination of spectrum awareness together with the selection of White Spaces frequencies windows create a new modern multi-applications industry. The report analyzes specifics of White Spaces communications in such environments and reflects communications benefits and issues. The White Spaces communications market is just evolving and promises multiple applications; one of such applications - M2M communications - is detailed.

The report goal was to analyze M2M communications based on utilization of White Spaces. To reach this goal:

1. Reconfigurable radio analysis was performed to show roots of spectrum sensing in WS communications. Technologies, standards, markets, industry and applications of reconfigurable radio were addressed.
2. White Spaces communications origin, properties, regulations, standards and industry were analyzed.
3. Development of the evolving industry - M2M/IoT communications - was addressed. For this purposes, specifics of such communications, their standardization, market properties and industry have been presented.
4. WS-supported M2M communications were analyzed; the evolving industry activity, standardizations efforts and specifics have been presented. In particular, the Weightless standard development was addressed.
The report is written for a wide audience of researches, engineers and managers that are involved in the development and utilization of cognitive radios and M2M communications for commercial markets.
