Improving Spectral Efficiency of Wireless Networks through Democratic Spectrum Sharing

  title={Improving Spectral Efficiency of Wireless Networks through Democratic Spectrum Sharing},
  author={Aniq Ur Rahman and Mustafa A. Kishk and Mohamed-Slim Alouini},
Wireless devices need spectrum to communicate. With the increase in the number of devices competing for the same spectrum, it has become nearly impossible to support the throughput requirements of all the devices through current spectrum sharing methods. In this work, we look at the problem of spectrum resource contention fundamentally, taking inspiration from the principles of globalization. We develop a distributed algorithm whereby the wireless nodes democratically share the spectrum…

A Game-Theoretic Framework for Coexistence of WiFi and Cellular Networks in the 6-GHz Unlicensed Spectrum
A framework where the portions of cellular and WiFi networks are grouped to form entities is proposed, which shows that practical implementation of multi-entity spectrum sharing is feasible even when the spatial distribution of the network elements and population are non-homogeneous.
QoE Driven Decentralized Spectrum Sharing in 5G Networks: Potential Game Approach
This paper studies spectrum sharing for providing better quality of experience in 5G networks, which are characterized by multidimensional heterogeneity in terms of spectrum, cells, and user requirements and proposes a spatial adaptive play iterative (SAPI) learning algorithm to search the global optimum.
Database-Assisted Distributed Spectrum Sharing
This paper designs a distributed AP association algorithm that can converge to a state-based Nash equilibrium and shows that the algorithm is robust to the perturbation by secondary users' dynamical leaving and entering the system.

An adaptive and distributed approach to spectrum allocation in mobile ad-hoc networks where users affected by the mobility event self-organize into bargaining groups and adapt their spectrum assignment to approximate a new optimal assignment is presented.
Hermes: Decentralized Dynamic Spectrum Access System for Massive Devices Deployment in 5G
This paper proposes an efficient multi-agent reinforcement learning algorithm and introduces a novel shuffle mechanism, addressing the drawbacks of collision and fairness in existing decentralized systems, and implements Hermes, the first decentralized DSA system for massive devices deployment.
Learning Temporal–Spatial Spectrum Reuse
A multi-user multi-armed bandit problem that exploits the temporal-spatial opportunistic spectrum access of primary user (PU) channels, so that secondary users who do not interfere with each other can make use of the same PU channel, is formulated and studied.
Deep Multi-User Reinforcement Learning for Distributed Dynamic Spectrum Access
A novel distributed dynamic spectrum access algorithm based on deep multi-user reinforcement leaning is developed for accessing the spectrum that maximizes a certain network utility in a distributed manner without online coordination or message exchanges between users.
Area spectral efficiency of cellular mobile radio systems
We consider the average area spectral efficiency (ASE) of variable-rate transmission cellular mobile systems. This efficiency is defined as the sum of the maximum average data rates/Hz/unit area
Cooperative Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning Based Distributed Dynamic Spectrum Access in Cognitive Radio Networks
The distributed DSA problem for multiuser in a typical multi-channel cognitive radio network is investigated, and a centralized off-line training and distributed on-line execution framework based on cooperative multi-agent reinforcement learning (MARL) is proposed.
Spectrum Sharing in Vehicular Networks Based on Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning
This paper investigates the spectrum sharing problem in vehicular networks based on multi-agent reinforcement learning and demonstrates that with a proper reward design and training mechanism, the multiple V2V agents successfully learn to cooperate in a distributed way to simultaneously improve the sum capacity of V2I links and payload delivery rate of V1V links.
