Abstract

In this paper we study the system level performance of cognitive radio (CR) networks under average received interference power constraints. Under the assumption of uniform node placements and a simple power control scheme, we derive the closed-form expression for the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the maximum allowable transmit power of the target CR transmitter. We further study two CR network scenarios: a CR based central access network and a CR assisted virtual multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) network. The average uplink capacities of both networks are derived and analyzed, with an emphasis on understanding the effect of the numbers of primary users and CR users on the capacity. Numerical and simulation results demonstrate that the CR based central access network is more suitable for less-populated rural areas where a lower density of primary receivers is expected, while the CR assisted virtual MIMO network performs better in urban environments with a dense population of mobile CR users. ©2008 IEEE.
