In this paper, performance evaluation of a cognitive radio network is conducted. The analysis is based on stochastic network calculus. The system is supposed to work in a Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) mode with fixed slot length. The wireless channel is modeled as a Gilbert-Elliott (GE) fading channel, where the channel quality transits between state ON and state OFF according to a Markov chain. Spectrum sensing errors, which can be classified into mis-detection and false-alarm, are

In addition, performance distribution bounds are obtained based on stochastic network calculus. Furthermore, numerical calculations are made to show the capacity limits under delay constraints.
