In this paper, we introduce a queueing approach with server interruptions to analyze the performance of a cognitive radio (CR) link subject to recurrent failures and interruptions. This general model can be used to analyze the traffic metrics as a function of different recovery schemes, channel bandwidth variations and service differentiation. As a first step, we solve in this paper the queueing model without service variation and differentiation. Numerical results to illustrate the analysis accuracy are provided.
