Webinar - Introduction to ETSI Software Reconfiguration Standards

Software radio reconfiguration offers solutions to recurring issues when linking hardware radio systems with software, allowing the upgrade and patching of radio systems deployed in the field.

However, software radio systems must address a number of issues:

  • How to transfer and install radio software components in a secure way
  • How to provide access to new software components to a user/operator
  • How to deal with device certification and type approval issues when new radio software components can modify the radio behaviour of a device
  • How to provide software portability and achieve efficient radio performance
  • How to gradually evolve a system towards software reconfigurability

ETSI’s Software Radio Reconfiguration model provides a modular and scalable solution to the challenge of deploying and using software radio systems. The solution, described in a recent ETSI white paper and in the EN 303 146 series of European Standards, allows a gradual and stepwise deployment of software reconfigurable radio, through different generations of equipment. This enables device manufacturers to gradually implement software reconfigurable radios, developing confidence at each step of the way.

Dr. Markus Mueck, of Intel, is the chairman of ETSI’s technical committee for Reconfigurable Radio Systems (TC RRS). In this webinar, he will explain in more details the advantages of software radio reconfiguration, and explain how the ETSI Software Radio Reconfiguration model addresses each of the issues identified above.
