ABSTRACT In this paper, Rayleigh fading channel with an OFDMA system is modeled as a finite-state Markov channel (FSMC) by partitioning the received signal envelope into several intervals. With the aid of sub-band formation and property of lumpability, the size of feedback information can be reduced. This approach involves reducing an exponentially increased states of Markov channel to multiple lumpable Markov channels. The corresponding state transition probabilities and steady-state probabilities are used to predict channel states information in multiple symbol durations ahead. Some simulation examples are presented to illustrate the capability of the lumpable FSMC in channel prediction

    ABSTRACT: Cognitive radio (CR) is a dynamic spectrum access technology as a solution to spectrum under-utilization problem in some licensed bands. Operating over an exceedingly wide spectrum, CR systems usually adopt multi-carrier modulation (MCM) to implement flexible channelization. Consequently, efficient channel allocation scheme becomes extremely important to an MCM based CR (MCM-CR) system. In this paper, a maximum likelihood detection model is developed to detect the presence and locations of licensed users (LUs) signals in the frequency domain. Performance of the detection model, including the optimal detection region, detection probability and false alarm probability, is analyzed. A one-order two-state Markovian chain model is proposed to predict channel status information. In particular, a novel subcarrier allocation scheme for MCM-CR systems is proposed, taking into account the confidence of channel estimation, quality of services (QoS) of rental users (RUs) and throughput. To validate the analytical results, simulations have been conducted to show effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we propose a novel adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) algorithm dedicated to reduce the feedback frequency of the channel state information (CSI). There have been already plenty of works on AMC so as to exploit the bandwidth more efficiently with the CSI feedback to the transmitter. However, in some occasions, frequent CSI feedback is not favorable in these systems. This work considers finite-state Markov chain (FSMC) based channel prediction to alleviate the feedback while maximizing the overall throughput. We derive the close-form of the frame error rate (FER) based on channel prediction using limited CSI feedback. In addition, instead of switching settings according to the CSI, we also provide means to combine both CSI and FER as the switching parameter. Numerical results illustrate that the average throughput of the proposed algorithm has significant performance improvement over fixed modulation and coding while the CSI feedback being largely reduced.
