Room : A04.01, TSP 9 rue Charles Fourier 91011 Evry CEDEX

Abstract :

Due to the increase in bandwidth demand of mobile users and their devices with energy hungry wireless networking modules, recent research has focused on the paradox of finding more spectrum to use while consuming less energy. This talk considers cognitive radio networks (CRNs) in which unlicensed secondary users (SUs) try to find available spectrum, which is the spectrum licensed to primary users (PUs) but is not being used. This is done by sensing PUs’ channels to detect their status. Usually, cooperative spectrum sensing is used to increase the confidence about the decision of the PUs’ channels status. We also consider large scale CRNs with many PU channels, and the SUs need to decide on which channels to sense, and in which order. In order to maximize the discovered spectrum, while minimizing energy consumed in sensing, switching between channels, and reporting sensing measurements, we introduce a cooperative sensing scheduling framework to minimize the opportunity cost, which is defined as the consumed energy per discovered unit of free spectrum. This scheme not only provides a feasible network set up in large scale CRNs in which there does not exist a sufficient number of SUs to satisfy the PU protection in a single round, but also offers a reduction in the opportunity cost. Because of the combinatorial nature of this problem, a heuristic method is also developed to reduce the time complexity while achieving results very close to the optimal cost.
