In this study, we propose a spectrum sharing scheme where secondary-users (SUs) can co-exist at the same frequency band with the primary-users simultaneously. Both primary (PN) and secondary networks (SN) are considered as CDMA based networks with the same set of orthogonal complementary codes. An orthogonal complementary code set possesses both ideal auto-correlation function (ACF) of any code and ideal cross-correlation function for any two codes in the same set. In the proposed scheme, a delay is applied to the transmission of the SN which exploits ideal ACF properties of complementary codes and will not interfere the transmission of the primary user. Numerical results show that the proposed scheme enables SUs to efficiently utilize the PN's licensed spectrum without any harmful interference.
