Software defined radio (SDR) is a hot topic in the telecommunications field, with regard to wireless technology. It is one of the most important topics of research in the area of mobile and personal communications. SDR is viewed as the enabler of global roaming and a platform for the introduction of new technologies and services into existing live networks. It therefore gives networks a greater flexibility into mobile communications. It bridges the inter-disciplinary gap in the field as SDR covers two areas of development, namely software development and digital signal processing and the internet. It extends well beyond the simple re-configuration of air interface parameters to cover the whole system from the network to service creation and application development. Reconfigurability entails the pervasive use of software reconfiguration, empowering upgrades or patching of any element of the network and of the services and applications running on it. It cuts across the types of bearer radio systems (Paging to cellular, wireless local area network to microwave, terrestrial to satellite, personal communications to broadcasting) enable the integration of many of today's disparate systems in the same hardware platform. Also it cuts across generation (second to third to fourth). This volume complements the already published volumes 1 and 2 of the Wiley Series in Software Radio. The book discusses the requirements for reconfigurability and then introduces network architectures and functions for reconfigurable terminals. Finally it deals with reconfiguration in the network. The book also provides a comprehensive view on reconfigurability in three very active research projects as CAST, MOBIVAS and TRUST/SCOUT.

Software Defined Radio (SDR) is a hot area in telecommunications and is one of the most important topics of research in the field of mobile and personal communications. Software Defined Radio: Architectures, Systems and Functions presents new research in wireless communications. It deals with reconfigurability aspects in various layers on the network and terminals as well as the introduction of reconfigurability management middleware and protocol adaptability mechanisms. These have become the key factors for the support of flexible and adaptable service provision to mobile users.
Key features include:
CAST (Configurable radio with Advanced Software Technology)
MOBVIAS (Downloadable Mobile Value Added Services through Software Radio and Switching Integrated Platforms) and
TRUST (Transparently Re-configurable Ubiquitous Terminal) /SCOUT (Smart User-Centric Communication Environment).
Logical and well written this third volume in the ‘Wiley Series in Software Radio’ is aimed primarily at professional researchers and wireless manufacturers and operators. It will also be valuable reading for senior undergraduate, postgraduate students on mobile and wireless communications courses, as academic research in the field of software defined radio and reconfigurable radio has developed greatly in recent years.Review:
"...the book's broad scope, clear writing, and effective organization make it an invaluable reference for researchers and graduate students, as well as wireless manufactures and operators." (IEEE Distributed Systems Online, October 2005)
"This book deals with reconfigurability aspects in various layers on the network and terminal...” (Microwave Journal, April 2004)
