    ABSTRACT: In a cognitive radio (CR) network, MAC-layer configuration involves determining a common set of channels to facilitate communication among participating nodes. Further, the availability of multiple channels and frequent channel switches add to the complexity of route selection. Knowledge of the global network topology can be used to solve the above-described problems. In this paper, we propose a distributed algorithm for gathering global network topology information for a CR network. We outline approaches that utilize the gathered topology information for MAC-layer configuration and efficient routing of packets. In addition, situation awareness is achieved by sharing the physical location information among the nodes in the network. The proposed algorithm determines the global network topology in O(N<sup>2 </sup>) timeslots, where N is the maximum number of nodes deployed. With 80 available channels for communication, the algorithm terminates within 0.8 second

    ABSTRACT: Cognitive radios (CR) have the ability to dynamically adapt to local spectrum availability. In a multi-hop wireless network comprised of CR-enabled devices, medium access control (MAC) layer scheduling for data communication involves assignment of timeslots and channels to either links or nodes in the network. The number of channels available and the channel identities vary from one node to another within the CR network. This is in contrast to the existing use of multiple channels where all the nodes have the same set of channels available (for example in IEEE 802.11 networks). In this paper, we present an integer linear programming (ILP) formulation for the MAC-layer scheduling problem and find an optimal schedule. We also propose a simple and efficient distributed heuristic for MAC-layer scheduling. Simulation results indicate that the proposed distributed heuristic provides near optimal schedule
