Abstract

This paper proposes an energy-efficient routing scheme that enables energy conservation and efficient data flow coordination, among communication nodes with heterogeneous spectrum availability in distributed cognitive radio networks. Effective routing scheme operation, as a matter of maximum energy conservation and traffic manipulation is obtained, by utilizing backward traffic activity evaluation, developed based on a simulation scenario. This simulation scenario includes a number of secondary communication nodes, operating over television white spaces (TVWS), under 'spectrum of commons' regulation policy. The validity of the proposed energy-efficient routing scheme is verified, by conducting experimental simulations and obtaining performance evaluation results. Simulation results validated its efficiency for minimizing energy consumption and maximizing resources exchange among secondary communication nodes.
