Wireless multimedia services currently suffer due to limited bandwidth. One of the reasons for this limitation was the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) spectrum regulation policy. But, with the advantage of open spectrum wireless networking the bandwidth constraint is minimized. In this paper, a Markov model is presented and used to analyze the unlicensed band access. Then a random access scheme is proposed which provisions the existing etiquettes with more efficiency and fairness. Later a homo egualis society model based access scheme is built to implement the random access scheme in a distributed fashion. Simulations are performed to demonstrate the accuracy of this Markov model and to show the efficiency and fairness of the proposed schemes.
