This white paper outlines ETSI's approach to software defined and reconfigured radio. This is something that is particularly relevant to smartphones and automobiles but SDR is challenging on the cost-efficiency and security fronts. The paper identifies some use cases which would benefit from software radio reconfiguration, together with some of the challenges that must be faced when deploying such technology. It then present the ETSI solution in more detail, and examines how it addresses specific challenges.
