Abstract: Cognitive Radio (CR) networks are emerging as new paradigm of communication and channels sharing in multimedia and wireless networks. In this paper, we address the problem of video transmission over shared CR networks using progressive compression source coding associated to fountain codes. We consider a TDMA-based transmission where many subscribers share the same infrastructure. Each Secondary User (SU) is assigned one time slot where he transmits with a certain probability. The given model allows each SU to transmit opportunistically in the remaining slots. Therefore, packets are not only corrupted by reason of Primary traffic interruptions, but also we consider losses caused by collisions between several SUs due to the Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing. We use a redundancy-based model for link maintenance to compensate for the loss of spectrum resources caused by the primary traffic reclaims. Moreover, we setup up many Secondary User Links to mitigate the collision effects. Numerical simulations are performed to evaluate the proposed approaches in view of the average Goodput. We conduct a stability and performance analysis of the system and we highlight the achieved gains when using our transmission model.
