Tool for recovering after meteorological events using a real-time REM and IoT management platform

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

This paper is the design of a Radio Environment Map (REM) with a real-time tool to sense the radiofrequency spectrum and optimally places with Surrogate Modelling and Sequential Experimental Design tools a total of 72 SDR sensors in the selected area, using LoRa and/or NB-IoT technologies for networking. It permits the regulatory body to check the correct use of the assigned spectrum and constitutes a communication alternative in case of a catastrophic event, such as a hurricane or an earthquake, where radio and TV broadcasting play an important role in keeping people informed after such meteorological event. The radiobroadcast services use large antennas and high towers, making them vulnerable to such events. Regardless of the chosen technology, the IoT monitoring network will be more robust, since it uses small antennas and lower towers, and often a given area is covered by multiple base stations. The tool can be used to deploy new services in the nonserved area (e.g., 4G in the 700MHz band at a lower cost or using TVWS techniques to provide communications and internet connection) and optimal interference management.
