—This paper presents a derivation of the probability distribution function (pdf) of the aggregate interference in a secondary access network where multiple secondary users cause interference to a single primary user. The derivation considers a practical interference protection mechanism that the transmission of each secondary user is regulated by an(More)
—In this paper, we investigate the impact of aggregate interference in a secondary access system. Particularly, meteorological radar operating in 5.6 GHz band is considered to be a primary user. Secondary users are WLAN devices spreading in a large area which induce aggregate interference to the radar. We develop a mathematical model to derive the(More)
In this paper, we quantify the temporal opportunities for secondary access to radar spectrum. Secondary users are assumed to be WLANs which opportunistically share the radar frequency band under the constraint that the aggregate interference does not harm radar operation. Each WLAN device emp loys dynamic frequency selection (DFS) as a mechanis m to protect(More)
—This paper presents an analytical model to approximate the probability distribution function of the aggregate interference that a primary user receives from multiple secondary transmitters. In particular, we consider heterogeneity in spatial distribution of secondary users such that there are several sites with densely populated secondary users in the(More)
—The demand for wireless communications services has increased the amount of spectrum resources required, promoting research interest in dynamic spectrum allocation schemes. There exist many promising solutions to allocate spectrum on a dynamic basis in order to get an efficient spectrum usage. One particular form is auction mechanism, tailored for(More)
