On the Rendezvous and Coexistence Problems in Cognitive Radio Networks
Time: Starts at 9:00 AM, April 15th 2014
Venue: A811, Building A, Shenyang Institute of Automation, CAS
In cognitive radio (CR) networks, secondary users opportunistically share the fallow licensed spectrum on a non-interference basis to primary users (a.k.a. licensed users). I will talk about two challenging problems in the design of medium access control (MAC) protocols in CR networks: (1) the rendezvous (control channel establishment) problem, and (2) the coexistence problem for heterogeneous CR networks. To address the rendezvous problem, we consider a systematic approach for designing channel hopping based rendezvous protocols that ensure a pair of CRs to “rendezvous” within an upper-bounded time over a common channel that is free of primary user signals. Given the coexistence requirements in CR networks, I will introduce an inter-network spectrum sharing protocol that enables the sharing of vacant TV white space among coexisting heterogeneous CR network.
