- Future wireless communication systems have to address a number of challenges
including the massive growth of traffic volume, number of connected
devices and a wide range of new applications and operating conditions.
Therefore, adaptability and extensibility at all layers of a communication system is of great
importance in order to meet the desired goals.
In this demonstration, we showcase a prototype of a novel link layer architecture
that employs a component-based design to separate data transfer and management
related functions in order support a wide range of applications.
Specifically, we demonstrate a dynamic spectrum access network exploiting available
radio spectrum opportunities while ensuring primary user protection.
The spectrum mobility functionality is realized as an optional management
application on top of a generic data transfer protocol.
