To improve the efficiency of spectrum utilization, cognitive radio systems attempt to use temporarily unoccupied spectrum which is referred to as a spectrum hole. To this end, QoS (Quality of Service) is one of the most important issues in practical cognitive radio systems. In this article, an efficient spectrum management scheme using self-reserving spectrum is proposed to support QoS for cognitive radio users. The self-reservation of a spectrum hole can minimize service dropping probability by using the statistical characteristics of spectrum bands while using optimum amount of resources. In addition, it realizes seamless service for users by eliminating spectrum entry procedure that includes spectrum sensing, spectrum request, and spectrum grant. Performance analysis and intensive system level simulations confirm the efficiency of the proposed algorithms.
