Distributed Resource Management in Multi-Hop Cognitive Radio Networks for Delay Sensitive Transmission
Source: University of California
In this paper, the authors investigate the problem of multi-user resource management in multi-hop cognitive radio networks for delay-sensitive applications. Since the tolerable delay does not allow propagating global information back and forth throughout the multi-hop network to a centralized decision maker, the source nodes and relays need to adapt their actions (transmission frequency channel and route selections) in a distributed manner, based on local network information. They propose a distributed resource management algorithm that allows network nodes to exchange information and that explicitly considers the delays and cost of exchanging the network information over the multi-hop cognitive radio networks.
