The article discusses the advantages in using software-defined radio (SDR). As reported, SDR products are emerging in virtually every sector of the communications industry. This may allegedly be the result of the intense effort exerted by the Pentagon's Joint Tactical Radio System Joint Program Office for the adoption of the SDR software architecture as a Department of Defense-wide operating system. Aside from the effort, it is likewise claimed that SDR products are now widely used because of the benefits they could provide. One is that, SDR-enabled devices can be dynamically programmed in software to reconfigure the characteristics of virtually any communications equipment. Another advantage is that, they can be used in providing disaster relief.
