With the rising popularity of Internet-enabled mobile devices, users are increasingly demanding better quality of service (QoS). However, the resources of these devices and their connectivity levels remain insufficient, even though they are improving, for offering acceptable levels of QoS to users. Cloud computing infrastructures offer large and scalable(More)
In wireless communication systems, the delay remains a crucial factor. In this work, we focus on the design of a new opportunistic cross-layer MAC protocol involving channels allocation and packet scheduling for cognitive networks in order to optimize system performance. Cognitive radio provides the opportunity for secondary users (unlicensed users) to use(More)
Abstract—We investigate energy conservation and system performance of decentralized resource allocation scheme in cognitive radio networks thoroughly based on secondary users competitive behavior. Indeed, the contention on data channel unoccupied by licensed user leads to a single winner, but also involves a loss of energy of all nodes. In this paper, we(More)
In recent years, Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) have successfully presented as a possible extension of the Internet architecture in order to provide communication support to existing networks. However, these networks have a major issue which is the coordination among relays. In this work, we study the cooperative transmission for DTNs using coalitional game(More)
We study energy conservation and system performance of decentralized cognitive radio network with cognitive users. Every cognitive radio (CR) user needs to sense the channel to send data, if the channel is unoccupied by a licensed user only one winner transmits its data. Hence, all other users waste their energy in sensing the licensed bands and in(More)
