The potential of successful cognitive radio networks operating in TV White Spaces (and other future bands re-allocated for unlicensed operation) has led to significant upsurge of interest in their design optimization - particularly those that are cross-layer in nature, involving both MAC protocols as well as physical layer aspects such as channel sensing. Typically, these seek to optimize a network-level metric (notably, aggregate throughput) of secondary (cognitive) network subject to… CONTINUE READING
