SDR has become the de facto technology for radio architectures for mobile infrastructure, military radios, public safety radios and even commercial mobile devices according to a study by the Wireless Innovation Forum. However, SDR is not enough to meet the future demands of these systems. After all, what is the driver for the wireless bandwidth explosion? Video. Future wireless systems (basestations and terminals) will couple video tightly with wireless to reduce latency, maximize bandwidth usage and improve the user experience. In addition, high performance computing, location awareness, and sensor fusion will be integrated with communications to provide intelligent communications and augmented reality. This requires a Software Defined System (SDS) architecture to meet these requirements.
