Spectrum sharing systems such as cognitive radio networks have drawn much attention recently due to their potential to resolve the conflict between increasing demand for spectrum and spectrum shortage. Such systems are typically composed of primary and secondary networks; the configuration of the latter depends on spectrum opportunity unexploited in the former. In this paper, the authors explore the characteristics of the Single hop Transport Throughput (STT) of the secondary network with outage constraints imposed on both networks.
