Effective spectrum sensing strategies enable cognitiveradios to enhance the spectrum efficiency. In this paper,modeling, performance analysis, and optimization of spectrum handoff in a centralized cognitive radio network are studied.More specifically, for a given sensing order, the average throughput of secondary users and average interference level among the secondary and primary users are evaluated for a cognitive radio network with only one secondary user. By aMarkov chain analysis, a network with multiple secondary users performing cooperative spectrum sensing is modeled, and the above performance metrics are derived. Then, a maximization ofthe secondary network performance in terms of throughput while keeping under control the average interference is formulated.Finally, numerical results validate the analytical derivations andshow that optimally tuning sensing time significantly enhancesthe performance of the spectrum handoff. Also, we observe that exploiting OR rule for cooperative spectrum sensing provides a higher average throughput compared to AND rule.
