In this paper, we develop a unifying optimization formulation to describe the Dynamic Channel and Power Assignment (DCPA) problem and an evaluation method for comparing DCPA algorithms. DCPA refers to the allocation of transmit power and frequency channels to links in a cognitive network so as to maximize the total number of feasible links while minimizing(More)
— In this paper, we present an approach to managing resources in a large-scale heterogeneous wireless network that supports reconfigurable devices. The system under study embodies internetworking concepts requiring independent wireless networks to cooperate in order to provide a unified network to users. We propose a multi-attribute scheduling algorithm(More)
—A current trend in spectrum regulation is to incorporate spectrum sharing through the design of spectrum access rules that support Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA). This paper develops a decision-theoretic framework for regulators to assess the impacts of different spectrum access rules on both primary and secondary operators. We analyze access rules based on(More)

As early as 2014, mobile network operators' spectral capacity will be overwhelmed by the demand brought on by new devices and applications. To augment capacity and meet this demand, operators may choose to deploy a Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) overlay. The signaling and functionality required by such an overlay have not yet been fully considered in the(More)
—Multi-channel operation in an ad hoc network can improve robustness and reliability by efficiently managing interference and reducing contention. In this paper, we model four dynamic channel assignment techniques under the same set of assumptions, comparing the efficiency of their power and channel allocations. As the number of channels increases, the(More)
