In this paper, we propose a channel-hopping MAC protocol called dynamic hopping MAC (DH-MAC) to improve the utilization of spectrum in cognitive radio networks. In DH-MAC, each secondary user (SU) switches its operation channel with a channel-hopping sequence which is adaptive to the activity of primary users (PUs). Our proposed DH-MAC mechanism enjoys the following merits. 1) It needs no dedicated common control channel for operation. 2) It supports multiple rendezvous for multiple simultaneous transmission pairs of SUs within the interfering range. 3) The rendezvous channel of two SUs will not be blocked by PUs for a long time. 4) It allows SUs a higher probability to operate on available channels as compared with existing schemes. 5) One cognitive radio transceiver is sufficient. The simulation results show that DH-MAC outperforms existing schemes in terms of higher aggregate throughput and more robustness to the disturbance of PUs.
