Title: Multicriteria Oppositional-Learnt Dragonfly Resource-Optimized QoS Driven Channel Selection for CRNs, Journal of Telecommunications and Information Technology, 2022, nr 4


Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) allow their users to achieve adequate QoS while communicating. The major concern related to CRN is linked to guaranteeing free channel selection to secondary users (SUs) in order to maintain the network’s throughput. Many techniques have been designed in the literature for channel selection in CRNs, but the throughput of the network has not been enhanced yet. Here, an efficient technique, known as multicriteria oppositional-learnt dragonfly resource optimized QoS-driven channel selection (MOLDRO-QoSDCS) is proposed to select the best available channel with the expected QoS metrics. The MOLDRO-QoSDCS technique is designed to improve energy efficiency and throughput, simultaneously reducing the sensing time. By relying on oppositional-learnt multiobjective dragonfly optimization, the optimal available channel is selected depending on signal-to-noise ratio, power consumption, and spectrum utilization. In the optimization process, the population of the available channels is initialized. Then, using multiple criteria, the fitness function is determined and the available channel with the best resource availability is selected. Using the selected optimal channel, data transmission is effectively performed to increase the network’s throughput and to minimize the sensing time. The simulated outputs obtained with the use of Matlab are compared with conventional algorithms in order to verify the performance of the solution. The MOLDRO-QoSDCS technique performs better than other methods in terms of throughput, sensing time, and energy efficiency.
