Abstract: In this paper, we consider the medium access control (MAC) protocol design for random access cognitive radio network (CRN). Based on asynchronous spectrum sensing technique and RTS/CTS mechanism, a new MAC protocol, namely, cognitive-radio-based carrier sense medium access with collision avoidance (CR-CSMA/CA) is proposed to coordinate the channel access of secondary network as well as protect the operation of primary network, which applies to both single and multiple channel models. Using the G/G/1 queuing model with consideration of unsaturated and saturated network condition, we develop a framework to analyze the proposed MAC protocol and also derive closed-form expressions of specific performance metrics such as normalized throughput, average packet service time, etc. Performance evaluations illustrate and validate that the performance of CR-CSMA/CA varies with the offered traffic load of secondary network and the spectrum utilization rate of primary network, respectively, and also show that CR-CSMA/CA outperforms other relevant MAC protocols. © 1983-2012 IEEE.
