Developing an efficient spectrum access policy enables cognitive radios to dramatically increase spectrum utilization while ensuring predetermined quality of service levels for primary users. In this paper, modeling, performance analysis, and optimization of a distributed secondary network with random sensing order policy are studied. Specifically, the secondary users create a random order of available channels upon primary users return, and then find optimal transmission and handoff opportunities in a distributed manner. By a Markov chain analysis, the average throughputs of the secondary users and average interference level among the secondary and primary users are investigated.
