802.22

An IEEE wireless standard for operation in the VHF and UHF TV white space bands from 54 to 862 MHz. Employing cognitive radio techniques, 802.22 is a "wireless regional area network" (WRAN) and is dubbed "Super Wi-Fi."

Similar to 802.11af
The IEEE 802.11af Wi-Fi standard also uses the TV white spaces but 802.22 offers greater distances and higher data rates (up to 100 km and 50+ Mbps compared to 1 km and 25+ Mbps). Both technologies penetrate walls better than regular Wi-Fi due to their lower frequencies. See 802.11af, TV white spaces and cognitive radio.

(i) Based on the requirements of long lifetime and less time delay for a power transmission line monitoring network, we propose a cluster-divided two-level CR 802.22 WRAN-based power transmission line monitoring system, in which first, the electrical and mechanical parameters of a transmission line in a cluster are collected and forwarded by infrastructure-mounted local sensors to cognitive relays attached in certain locations on power line transmission poles (termed cognitive poles in the rest of this paper).

In aggregate interference control, the Q-learning was proposed to optimize the power transmission of secondary CRs in a WRAN IEEE 802.22 CR network (CRN) [122].
The first IEEE 802.22 working group that was based on cognitive radio was established in November 2004, with the purpose to address the wireless wide area network access using cognitive radio technology in broadcast and TV bands [1].
They survey wireless and mobile networks with a focus on the IEEE 802.22 norm, which is dedicated to cognitive radio; describe cognitive radio as a domain at the boundary between telecommunications and artificial intelligence; apply the notion of agent from artificial intelligence to multi-agent systems; and put it all together to permit dynamic spectrum access.
The IEEE 802.22 wireless regional area network (WRAN) standard [3] allows WRAN systems to utilize channels in the UHF and VHF bands in the frequency range from 54 MHz to 862 MHz, as long as they do not interfere with licensed broadcast incumbent services on these bands, such as wireless microphones and TV broadcasting services.
