Routing is one of the most important and fundamental issues in Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs). In this paper, we propose an effective routing scheme. Our main contributions are threefold. First, we propose a spectrum-aware Semi-Structure Routing (SSR) framework which incorporates power control. By employing forwarding zones and routing zones, SSR can effectively utilize the local real-time spectrum dynamics and meanwhile guarantee the global routing performance. Second, considering the lack of… CONTINUE READING
