[more ▼] The detection reliability of a cognitive radio network improves by employing a cooperative spectrum sensing scheme. However, increasing the number of cognitive radios entails a growth in the cooperation overhead of the system. Such an overhead leads to a throughput degradation of the cognitive radio network. Since current cognitive radio networks consist of low-power radios, the energy consumption is another critical issue. In this paper, throughput optimization of the hard fusion based sensing using the k-out-of-N rule is considered. We maximize the throughput of the cognitive radio network subject to a constraint on the probability of detection and energy consumption per cognitive radio in order to derive the optimal number of users, the optimal k and the best probability of false alarm. The simulation results based on the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee standard, show that the majority rule is either optimal or almost optimal in terms of the network throughput.

[more ▼] An efficient cooperative spectrum sensing based cognitive radio network employs a certain number of secondary users to sense the spectrum while satisfying a constraint on the detection performance. We derive the optimal number of cognitive radios under two scenarios: an energy efficient and a throughput optimization setup. In the energy efficient setup, the number of cooperating cognitive radios is minimized for a k-out-of-N fusion rule with a constraint on the probability of detection and false alarm while in the throughput optimization setup, we maximize the throughput of the cognitive radio network, by deriving the optimal reporting time in a sensing time frame which is proportional to the number of cognitive users, subject to a constraint on the probability of detection. It is shown that both problems can be simplified to line search problems. The simulation results show that the OR and the majority rule outperform the AND rule in terms of energy efficiency and that the OR rule gives a higher throughput than the AND rule with a smaller number of users.

[more ▼] Optimization of hard fusion spectrum sensing using the k-out-of-N rule is considered. Two different setups are used to derive the optimal k. A throughput optimization setup is defined by minimizing the probability of false alarm subject to a probability of detection constraint representing the interference of a cognitive radio with the primary user, and an interference management setup is considered by maximizing the probability of detection subject to a false alarm rate constraint. It is shown that the underlying problems can be simplified to equality constrained optimization problems and an algorithm to solve them is presented. We show the throughput optimization and interference management setups are dual. The simulation results show the majority rule is optimal or near optimal for the desirable range of false alarm and detection rates for a cognitive radio network. Furthermore, an energy efficient setup is considered where the number of cognitive radios is to be minimized for the AND and the OR rule and a certain probability of detection and false alarm constraint. The simulation results show that the OR rule outperforms the AND rule in terms of energy efficiency. [less ▲] Detailed reference viewed: 116 (0 UL) |
