Time-Frequency Spectrum Leasing for OFDM-Based Dynamic Spectrum Sharing Systems

Executive Summary

In cognitive radio systems, Dynamic Spectrum Leasing (DSL) can improve the efficiency of spectrum utilization. In DSL, the primary user who has the license for a part of the bandwidth, decides to lease it to a secondary user or not. In this paper, the authors assume an OFDM-based system and perform the leasing operation in this system where the primary user leases the spectrum for a number of OFDM symbols to secondary users in exchange of a better quality-of-service achieved by secondary network cooperation. The secondary users use a part of the spectrum for relaying the primary data to the primary receiver and the rest of the spectrum for their own transmissions.
