Security is critical for sensor networks used in military, homeland security and other hostile environments. Previous research on sensor network security mainly considers homogeneous sensor networks. Research has shown that homogeneous ad hoc networks have poor performance and scalability. Furthermore, many security schemes designed for homogeneous sensor(More)
— We consider the communication scenario where multiple cognitive users wish to communicate to the same receiver through AWGN channels, in the presence of primary transmission. The cognitive users are assumed to have the side information about the primary transmission. The achievable rate region of cognitive users is formulated under the constraint that the(More)
—This paper investigates the random channel access mechanism specified in the IEEE 802.16 standard for the uplink traffic in a Point-to-MultiPoint (PMP) network architecture. An analytical model is proposed to study the impacts of the channel access parameters, bandwidth configuration and piggyback policy on the performance. The impacts of physical burst(More)
