This paper focuses on a new spectrum sensing algorithm based on the exploitation of the primary signal cyclostationarity property, which is used to avoid the intercell interference in a heterogeneous Long-Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) network. The performance of the proposed spectrum sensing method will be evaluated by means of a suitable analytical approach whose accuracy will be validated by comparing analytical predictions with simulation results under different communication channel… CONTINUE READING
