Optimal Spectrum Utilization and Flow Controlling In Heterogeneous Network with Reconfigurable Devices

Syed Shakeel Hashmi, Dr. Syed Abdul Sattar, Dr. K Soundararajan


Fairness provisioning in heterogeneous networks is a prime issue for high-rate data flow, wherein the inter-connectivity property among different communication devices provides higher throughput. In Hetnet, optimal resource utilization is required for efficient resource usage. Proper resource allocation in such a network led to higher data flow performance for real-time applications. In view of optimal resource allocation, a resource utilization approach for a reconfigurable cognitive device with spectrum sensing capability is proposed in this paper.  The allocation of the data flow rate at device level is proposed for optimization of network fairness in a heterogeneous network.  A dynamic approach of rate-inference optimization is proposed to provide fairness in dynamic data traffic conditions. The simulation results validate the improvement in offered quality in comparison to multi-attribute optimization.
