Abstract

Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) consisting of opportunistic links greatly elevate the networking throughput per bandwidth in future wireless communications. In this letter, we show that by encoding a data packet into several coded packets and transmitting in various time slots, the ene-to-end transmission in the CRN can be equivalently formulated as a physical-layer multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication problem. Two coding schemes are proposed in such a virtual MIMO scenario to enhance the end-to-end communication reliability by exploiting the path diversity. The closed-form expression of the theoretical error rate analysis validates that the proposed path-time codes can significantly improve the error rate performance.
