ABSTRACT The capacity of a secondary link in spectrum sharing systems has been recently investigated in fading environments. In particular, the secondary transmitter is allowed to adapt its power and rate to maximize its capacity subject to the constraint of maximum interference level allowed at the primary receiver. In most of the literature, it was assumed that estimates of the channel state information (CSI) of the secondary link and the interference level are made available at the secondary transmitter via an infinite-resolution feedback links between the secondary/primary receivers and the secondary transmitter. However, the assumption of having infinite resolution feedback links is not always practical as it requires an excessive amount of bandwidth. In this paper we develop a framework for optimizing the performance of the secondary link in terms of the average spectral efficiency assuming quantized CSI available at the secondary transmitter. We develop a computationally efficient algorithm for optimally quantizing the CSI and finding the optimal power and rate employed at the cognitive transmitter for each quantized CSI level so as to maximize the average spectral efficiency. Our results give the number of bits required to represent the CSI sufficient to achieve almost the maximum average spectral efficiency attained using full knowledge of the CSI for Rayleigh fading channels.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we consider cognitive radio systems with automatic repeat request (ARQ)-based error control and propose a throughput-maximizing transmission strategy at the cognitive transmitter which takes advantage of opportunities that arise during ARQ retransmissions. In particular, we present a cross-layer approach to link adaptation design which integrates adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) at the physical layer with packet retransmission at the data-link layer. In this formulation, the cognitive throughput performance is maximized subject to (i) a packet-loss-rate (PLR) constraint at the cognitive link, and (ii) a minimum required throughput and a PLR constraint at the primary link. The results indicate that the maximum cognitive throughput is determined based on a tradeoff between the primary PLR and delay requirements.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider an underlay cognitive radio paradigm with a primary packet system which implements automatic repeat request (ARQ)-based error control. We propose cognitive transmission strategies which provision for minimum primary quality of service (QoS) requirements. The proposed strategies take advantage of opportunities that arise during ARQ retransmissions of the primary system at the link layer, and adapt channel fading variations by employing adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) and power control at the physical layer. In this cross-layer formulation, the cognitive throughput is optimized subject to 1) a packet-loss-rate (PLR) constraint on the cognitive link, and 2) a minimum required throughput and a PLR constraint on the primary link. We first derive analytical expressions for the link-layer throughput of the cognitive link defined in terms of the data rate successfully received at the receiver side. Next, we present optimized AMC and power control schemes for the cognitive transmitter. Numerical results show significant improvement in terms of the cognitive throughput and PLR performance. Namely, when the cognitive transmitter employs both power and rate control the throughput-maximizing strategy is determined based on a tradeoff between the primary PLR and delay (in terms of the number of retransmission rounds) QoS metrics.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, an underlay spectrum sharing scheme is proposed where both primary and secondary users are discrete power-rate adaptive systems with limited feedback from receivers. By receiving secondary and overhearing primary quantized channel quality information from the secondary receiver and primary receiver, respectively, the secondary transmitter adapts its resource allocation to the current channel quality by selecting a proper power-rate pair from the pre-designed secondary quantization codebook. The secondary quantization codebook is designed to maximize the secondary average achievable rate subject to the long term power constraint of the secondary transmitter and the rate loss constraint at the primary receiver. Numerical results show that, by introducing the secondary feedback, the secondary throughput is greatly improved. More secondary feedback bits result in better secondary performance.
