Cognitive Transmissions Under a Primary ARQ Process Via Backward Interference Cancellation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors address the problem of the coexistence of Primary and Secondary Users (PU and SU, respectively) in a wireless network, where the PU employs a retransmission based error control technique (ARQ). This mechanism offers the SU a non trivial opportunity: by decoding the Primary Message (PM), the Secondary Receiver (SR) can perform interference cancellation during the whole primary ARQ window, thus enhancing its own outage performance. In particular, they investigate a Backward Interference Cancellation (BIC) mechanism: the SR buffers the secondary transmissions that underwent outage due to primary interference, and attempts to recover them once the knowledge about the PM becomes available due to decoding operation in a future instant.
