We develop a queueing analytic framework to study the data link layer quality-of-service performance measures for cognitive radio users in an infrastructure-based dynamic spectrum access environment. In order to allocate the available spectrum white spaces among the cognitive radio users in a spectrum overlay scenario, an opportunistic scheduling scheme is considered. The queueing model considers bursty traffic arrival pattern at the cognitive radio user ends, finite buffer size, activity of primary users (i.e., dynamic channel availability), and correlated channel fading. We present a step-by-step procedure to derive the delay distribution, average throughput, and packet loss rate for the cognitive radio users. The proposed framework facilitates cross-layer design for improved QoS experience in cognitive radio networks. Usefulness of the developed analytical model is demonstrated through example applications.
