Modeling and performance evaluation of transmission control protocol over cognitive radio ad hoc networks
Cognitive Radio (CR) technology constitutes a new paradigm to provide additional spectrum utilization opportunities in wireless ad hoc networks. Recent research in this field has mainly focused on devising spectrum sensing and sharing algorithms, to allow an opportunistic usage of licensed portions of the spectrum by Cognitive Radio Users (CRUs). However, it is also important to consider the impact of such schemes on the higher layers of the protocol stack, in order to provide efficient end-to-end data delivery. Since TCP is the de facto transport protocol standard on Internet, it is crucial to estimate its ability in providing stable endto-end communication over Cognitive Radio Ad Hoc Networks (CRAHNs). The contributions of this paper are twofold. First, we propose an extension of the NS-2 simulator to support realistic simulation of CRAHNs. Our extension allows to model the activities of Primary Users (PUs), and the opportunistic spectrum management by CRUs in the licensed band. Sec...
