In this paper, the authors use stochastic network calculus to analyze the performance bounds for a cognitive radio network with two classes of input traffic. First, stochastic service curves for primary users and secondary users are obtained based on the system model and stochastic network calculus. Then, they derive the general expressions of backlog and delay bounds for both primary and secondary users under two methods, i.e., min-plus convolution and independent case analysis. Finally, numerical results as well as simulation results are compared and discussed.
