Abstract

This paper elaborates on the design, implementation and performance evaluation of a prototype Radio Resource Management (RRM) framework for TV white spaces (TVWS) exploitation, under an auction-based approach. The proposed RRM framework is applied in a centralised Cognitive Radio (CR) network architecture, where exploitation of the available TVWS by Secondary Systems is orchestrated via a Spectrum Broker. Efficient RRM framework performance, as a matter of maximum-possible resources utilization and benefit of Spectrum Broker, is achieved by proposing and evaluating an auction-based algorithm. This auction-based algorithm considers both frequency and time domain during TVWS allocation process which was defined as an optimization problem, where maximum payoff of Spectrum Broker is the optimization goal. Experimental tests that were carried-out under controlled conditions environment, verified the validity of the proposed framework, besides identifying fields for further research.
