Modeling an Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing System With a Correlated Arrival Process
Source: George Mason University
In an Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing (OSS) wireless network there are two types of users: primary users and secondary users. The primary users own the license for the system bandwidth, while the secondary users opportunistically share the spectrum resources with the primary users. When a secondary user detects a call arrival from a primary user in its current channel, the secondary user leaves the channel immediately and switches to an idle channel, if one is available, to continue the call. Otherwise, the secondary user is preempted. Call arrivals from primary users and secondary users in the OSS system are modeled by a Markovian Arrival Process (MAP) which captures correlation in the aggregate arrival process consisting of the two types of call arrivals.
