Cognitive Radio Networks with Best Relay Selection Method

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors propose a cognitive transmission scheme with the best relay selection in a multiple-relay cognitive radio network to improve the secondary transmission performance while guaranteeing the Quality-of-Service (QoS) of the primary transmissions. They derive the closed-form expression of outage probability for the secondary transmissions, called Secondary outage probability, with the constraint of ensuring a target outage probability of primary transmissions (primary outage probability) for both the traditional non-relay and proposed best-relay selection based cognitive transmission schemes. Numerical results illustrate that, under a primary outage probability constraint, a secondary outage probability floor of the cognitive transmission occurs in high signal-to-noise ratio regions.
