Abstract--Dynamic spectrum networks enable fast deployment
of new wireless technologies by effectively utilizing allocated yet
unused wireless spectrum. By sensing and utilizing available wire-
less channels, cognitive radio devices can provide high through-
put, low latency communication. Existing schemes for channel as-
signment suffer drawbacks in throughput and reachability in the
presence of location-dependent channel availability. We propose
SPEctrum-Aware Routing Protocol (SPEAR), a robust and efficient
distributed channel assignment and routing protocol for dynamic
spectrum networks based on two principles: integrated spectrum
and route discovery for robust multi-hop path formation, and
distributed path reservations to minimize inter- and intra-flow
interference. Through simulations and testbed measurements, we
show that SPEAR establishes robust paths in diverse spectrum
conditions and provides near-optimal throughput and end-to-end
