Opportunistic Communication (Cognitive Radio) over Primary Discarded Subchannels by Applying a Double Power Distribution
International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting
This paper proposes the establishment of a simultaneous cognitive radio communication based on a subdistribution of power made over unselected subchannels which were discarded by the primary user through an initial optimal power allotment. The aim of this work is to show the possibility of introducing an opportunistic communication into a licensed transmission where the total power constraint is shared. The analysis of the proposed transmission scheme was performed by considering 128 and 2048
... ring 128 and 2048 independent subchannels affected byRayleighfading, over 10,000 channel realizations, and three different signal-to-noise ratios (8 , 16 , and 24 ). From the system evaluation it was possible to find the optimal power allotment for the primary user, the subdistribution of power for the secondary user, as well as the attenuation and the capacity per subchannel for every channel realization. Moreover, thePDFandCDFof the total obtained capacities, as well as the generation of empirical capacity regions, were estimated as complementary results.
