This paper presents the Adaptive Spectrum Opportunity Access (ASOA) scheme. The proposed scheme greatly improves spectrum utilization and provides improved QoS for the secondary users. The secondary data delivery time is adapted in different spectrum opportunities through ASOA scheme based on the estimated collision rates in a sophisticated way. The(More)
Cooperative spectrum sensing is a key function in cognitive radio networks in order to provide unused spectrum access opportunities and mitigate the impact of interference to the primary networks. Cooperative sensing can incur additional cooperation overhead, increased energy consumption, extra sensing time and delay in heterogeneous networks. In this(More)
In this paper, we propose and compare two spectrum decision schemes namely; Adaptive Spectrum Decision (ASD) and Maximum Remaining Lifetime (MRL). The simulation results and performance analysis such as channel utilization, data delivery, and spectrum handoff rate are evaluated and compared. The results obtained that ASD has great performance in comparison(More)
The concept of Cognitive Radio (CR) is meant to be utilised by both licensed and license-exempt users that coexist in a shared spectrum area whenever they need to avoid causing unaffordable interference to each other by following some rules. In fact, primary users should be protected by any license-exempt transmission. To this end, power control is a(More)
