This paper studies a spectrum sharing cognitive radio (CR) network coexisting with a primary network. In particular, the channel state information (CSI) between the secondary transmitter (STx) and the primary receiver (PRx) is assumed to be outdated due to channel feedback latency. We assume that the secondary user (SU) shall satisfy a given delay quality-of-service (QoS) constraint as well as the average interference power constraint. Our aim is to obtain the maximum arrival rate of the SU under aforementioned constraints with the outdated CSI. In this respect, we derive the optimal power allocation scheme to achieve the maximum effective capacity, and further derive the effective capacity. The closed-form expressions for the lower and upper bounds on the effective capacity are also provided. Numerical and simulation results are presented to show the effects of the outdated CSI. It is shown that the effective capacity of the SU is insensitive to the channel correlation coefficient especially under low channel correlation coefficient.
