An important emerging capability is for mobile terminals to be dynamically reconfigured. Through ongoing advances in technology such as software defined radio, reconfiguration of mobile terminals will in the near future be achievable across all layers of the protocol stack. However, along with the capability for such wide-ranging reconfiguration comes the need to manage reconfiguration procedures. This is necessary to coordinate reconfigurations, to ensure that there are no negative effects (e.g. interference to other RATs) as a result of reconfigurations, and to leverage maximal potential benefits of reconfiguration and ensuing technologies such as those involving dynamic spectrum access. The IEEE P1900.4 working group is therefore defining three building blocks for reconfiguration management: Network Reconfiguration Management (NRM), Terminal Reconfiguration Management (TRM), and a radio enabler to provide connectivity between the NRM and TRMs. In this paper we concentrate on aspects of the radio enabler, highlighting its relevance in heterogeneous radio access scenarios, its advantages, and some aspects of its technical realization.
