Queuing Systems in Resource Allocation Optimisation for Cognitive Radio Networks

Abstract

This chapter explores queuing systems as a recently employed but very potent analytical tool for achieving improved solutions in the resource allocation for cognitive radio networks. The chapter identifies that, especially for heterogeneous cognitive radio networks, some resource allocation problems, such as problems related to time delays and user prioritisation, are best analysed using queuing models/techniques. The chapter establishes the importance of queuing theory/systems in achieving improved resource allocation solutions for cognitive radio networks and discusses some highly relevant examples of the use of this tool for solving resource allocation problems in cognitive radio networks. The chapter concludes by describing a new configurable framework that smartly combines the ideas of queuing and optimisation in achieving resource allocation solutions for modern cognitive radio networks.
