From linear to multi-level standardization in telecommunications: the case of the Cognitive Pilot Channel.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

Abstract

This paper analyzes the transition in telecommunications from linear standardization taking place mainly in the domain of formal Standardization Organizations, to a highly complex and multi-level process simultaneously involving formal organizations, informal bodies and industrial consortia. It points to system complexity and market liberalization as the principal causes for this evolution, and describes the concurrent shifts towards alliance based standardization and reform within Standards Development Organizations. Subsequently, the paper discusses the standardization process within IEEE SCC41 and ETSI TC RRS of a Cognitive Pilot Channel -as a potential crucial enabler for dynamic spectrum allocation and flexible spectrum management- to show how innovation in telecommunications markets is determined by this complex interplay. The paper concludes by outlining avenues for future research into the potential opportunities and drawbacks of multi-level standardization, and its consequences for the deployment of networks and services based on the standardized technologies
