We propose an access control scheme in cognitive radio networks with prioritized Secondary Users (SUs). Considering the different types of data in the networks, the SU packets in the system are divided into SU1 packets with higher priority and SU2 packets with lower priority. In order to control the access of the SU2 packets (including the new arrival SU2 packets and the interrupted SU2 packets), a dynamic access threshold is set. By building a discrete-time queueing model and constructing a
more » ... d constructing a three-dimensional Markov chain with the number of the three types of packets in the system, we derive some performance measures of the two types of the SU packets. Then, with numerical results, we show the change trends for the different performance measures. At last, considering the tradeoff between the throughput and the average delay of the SU2 packets, we build a net benefit function to make optimization for the access threshold.
