Currently, for rural and remote education, wireline solutions are inefficient in most remote areas due to uneconomic returns especially in sparse remote areas. But, utilizing wireless communications on rural and remote communities is forecasted to be enormous. The aim of this research is to introduce existing and suitable wireless communication technologies that could potentially provide telecommunication infrastructure, plus cognitive radio technology which include many new opportunities will be a solution to increasing users and service demands effectively on changing environments and different working conditions by solving spectrum scarcity issue and IEEE 802.22 cognitive radio based wireless regional access network (WRAN) in order to achieve educational goals. ©2009 IEEE.
