So far, the analysis of the reliability aspect of CRNs from a dependability perspective still remains as a nearly un-chartered topic. To fill this gap, we introduce a set of reliability and availability metrics.

Ph.d.-kandidat

Indika Anuradha Mendis Balapuwaduge forsker på hvordan ledig nettkapasitet kan utnyttes best mulig og samtidig være mest mulig pålitelig.

Utnyttelse av kapasitet i nettverk ved at sekundærbrukere utnytter ledige frekvenser i primærbrukernes nett, er noe som opptar mange. Balapuwaduge har i sin avhandling funnet fram til en kø-ordning som sikrer at brukerne i det sekundære nettverket får en mest mulig pålitelig oppkobling.

Channel Access and Reliability Performance in Cognitive Radio Networks: Modeling and Performance Analysis

During the past one and a half decade, cognitive radio networks (CRNs) have received considerable attention from both academia and spectrum regulatory bodies in order to promote efficient spectrum utilization by allowing unlicensed users (secondary users) exploit the vacant frequency bands of the licensed users (primary users).

The concept of CRN has inspired innumerable research ideas and efforts to explore dynamic spectrum access (DSA) strategies to provide satisfactory performance for both secondary and primary networks.

Two dissertation objectives

The objective of this doctoral dissertation is two folds, as 1) to design and analyze DSA schemes under different network scenarios; and 2) to assess the reliability aspect of DSA from a dependability perspective

To design and analyze DSA schemes, this dissertation focuses on enabling more channel access opportunities for secondary users by employing four techniques: channel aggregation; priority-based queues; spectrum leasing; and channel reservation.

In particular, two priority-based queuing schemes are proposed for DSA strategies supported by channel aggregation.

Next, considering the willingness of primary networks to lease a part of their licensed spectrum to the secondary network, both static and dynamic spectrum leasing schemes are proposed in CRNs.

Moreover, channel reservation is studied as an effective technique to ensure service completion of ongoing transmissions in CRNs.

Reliability

So far, the analysis of the reliability aspect of CRNs from a dependability perspective still remains as a nearly un-chartered topic.

To fill this gap, we introduce a set of reliability and availability metrics including various system times in accordance with the International Telecommunication Union’s recommendations and dependability theory.
