This monograph presents the major developments towards the implementation of whitespace radio. Whitespace communication is a new standard for digital communication technology which based on the existing analog TV bands. The standards have been released introducing cognitive communication. Since the introduction of the standards, this has gathered a lot of research and development efforts. The main reason for the popularity of Whitespace technologies are two fold. First of all it can support much wider cells and hence can be used in sparsely populated areas. Secondly, it leverages well upon the two major fields of current communication research, viz. cognitive radio and software defined radio. Whitespace is deemed to be a technology of choice for sparsely populated developing countries. In this aspect it is expected to be a solution for Africa In that manner, the rural area treatment of the subject in the book makes it very practical oriented.A generalised packet based generalised OFDM communication system with pilots forming the first symbol known at the receiver is ... It is assumed throughout the chapter that the guard interval is long enough to avoid any ISI and a cyclic prefix is introduced in the guard interval to avoid any ICI. ... To verify the robustness of the algorithm, simulations were carried out on Matlab for ensemble of 1000-runs.
