Overlay Cognitive Transmission in OFDM Point to Point Systems Exploiting Primary Feedback

A secondary user that tries to reuse the spectrum allocated to a primary user can exploit the knowledge of the primary message to perform this task. In particular, the overlay cognitive radio paradigm postulates the use of a fraction of the available power at the secondary transmitter to convey the primary message, so the spectral efficiency of the primary system is increased, and, therefore, some transmission resources (time slots or frequency bands) can be released to the secondary transmission while the primary user rate is kept constant. In this paper, the authors present a scenario where the secondary transmitter maximizes the primary link quality (measured in terms of Effective SNR), and obtains its channel state information by exploiting the primary user SNR-based feedback.
