Abstract

We investigate the cross-layer control problem for utility maximization in a multihop cognitive radio network. Specifically, we consider a scenario where wireless links of a secondary multihop wireless network opportunistically exploit a frequency band for data delivery when their neighboring primary users do not access it. We assume that the busy/idle status of the underlying channel in view of any particular secondary wireless link follows a two-state Markov chain and this information is only available at each secondary wireless link within one time slot delay. We develop a joint flow control, routing and scheduling algorithm that can achieve the total network utility arbitrarily close to optimality. In addition, we show that the proposed algorithm can maintain stability of all network queues while keeping collision probabilities with primary users below predetermined desirable values. To the best of our knowledge, this paper is the first attempt to design optimal control algorithms for multihop cognitive radio networks.
