In this paper, we introduce the concept of “route robustness” for path selection in multi-hop cognitive radio networks. We demonstrate that the aggregate throughput and the robustness of routes determined by the proposed route selection strategy are superior to existing rate-based selection strategies. The rationale behind our approach is to guarantee a(More)
One of the most challenging issues in cognitive radio systems is channel sensing and channel accessing. In this paper, a synchronized channel-sensing and accessing for cognitive radio users in IEEE 802.11 wireless networks is proposed. The mechanism consists of two phases: fast channel sensing and proactive channel vacating. Fast channel sensing is for a(More)
One of the most challenging issues in cognitive radio networks is efficient channel sensing and channel accessing. In this paper, an analytical queueing model is used to derive the probability of successful transmission, channel sensing time, and transmission quota, for each data channel. Each CR node records the derived statistics in a channel preference(More)
Due to the power consumption issue of user equipment (UE), Single-Carrier FDMA (SC-FDMA) has been selected as the uplink multiple access scheme of 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE). Similar to OFDMA downlink, SCFDMA enables multiple UEs to be served simultaneously in uplink as well. However, the single carrier characteristic requires that all the allocated(More)
