Optimal Channel Selection for Spectrum-Agile Low-Power Wireless Packet Switched Networks in Unlicensed Band
EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking volume 2008, Article number: 896420 (2008)
This paper addresses the problem of optimal channel selection for spectrum-agile low-powered wireless networks in unlicensed bands. The channel selection problem is formulated as a multiarmed bandit problem enabling us to derive the optimal selection rules. The model assumptions about the interfering traffic that motivates this formulation are also validated through 802.11 traffic measurements as an example of a packet switched network. Finally, the performance of the optimal dynamic channel selection is investigated through simulation. The simulation results show that the proposed algorithm consistently tracks the best channel compared to other heuristic schemes.
