Multicast Scheduling with Cooperation and Network Coding in Cognitive Radio Networks
—Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) have recently emerged as a promising technology to improve spectrum utilization by allowing secondary users to dynamically access idle primary channels. As progress are made and computationally powerful wireless devices are proliferated, there is a compelling need of enabling multicast services for secondary users. Thus, it is crucial to design an efficient multicast scheduling protocol in CRNs. However, state-of-the-art multicast scheduling protocols are not well designed for CRNs. First, due to primary channel dynamics and user mobility, there may not exist commonly available channels for secondary users, which inevitably makes the multicast scheduling infeasible. Second, the potential benefits provided by user and channel diversities are overlooked, which leads to under-utilization of the scarce wireless bandwidth. In this paper, we present an optimization framework for multicast scheduling in CRNs, by fully embracing its characteristics. In this...
