Abstract

With the increasing usage of wireless sensor network technologies, their unlicensed bands become overcrowded. To address this challenge, cognitive radio technology with the dynamic spectrum access policy has merged with Wireless Sensor Network to overcome spectrum underutilization. The Cognitive Radio Sensor Network (CRSN) has emerged as a promising solution to overcome spectrum scarcity in a resource-constrained wireless sensor network. In CRSN, TCP has to cope with a new type of packet loss due to the primary users (PU) arrival, known here as a secondary user (SU) blocking loss. In this paper SU blocking loss is modelled by a discrete-time Markov chain. The experimental results are verified using the NS2.
