Optimal and Heuristic DSA Policies for Cellular Networks With Coordinated Access Band
Source: Telecom ParisTech
Due to the increasing demands for higher data rate applications, also due to the actual spectrum crowd situation, DSA (Dynamic Spectrum Access) turned into an active research topic. In this paper, the authors analyze DSA in cellular networks context, where a CAB (Coordinated Access Band) is shared between RANs (Radio Access Networks). The authors propose a SMDP (Semi Markov Decision Process) approach to derive the optimal DSA policies in terms of operator reward. In order to overcome the limitations induced by optimal policy implementation, they also propose a simple, though sub-optimal, DSA heuristic.
