Executive Summary

In this paper, a new spectrum sharing model called sensing-based spectrum sharing is proposed for cognitive radio networks. This model consists of two phases: in the first phase, the Secondary User (SU) listens to the spectrum allocated to Primary User (PU) to detect the state of PU; in the second phase, SU adapts its transit power based on the sensing results. If the PU is inactive, the SU allocates the transmission power based on its own benefit. However, if the PU is active, interference power constraint is imposed in order to protect the PU.
