University of Buffalo Researchers Working to Make Wireless Ten Times Faster

Researchers at the University of Buffalo received a grant from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to develop a cognitive radio to help find and use alternative channels to avoid wireless traffic jams.

The cognitive radio being developed will eliminate inefficiencies in wireless communications and fully use the radio spectrum that is allocated to wireless devices. The radio will be able to immediately identify unused channels in the radio spectrum and use them to transfer as much information as possible, reducing interference.  While the technology is still being developed, the team has calculated it could make wireless communications ten times faster than current technology.
