The determination of Optimal Packet Size (OPS) for Cognitive Radio assisted Sensor Networks (CRSNs) architecture is non-trivial. State of the art in this area describes various complex techniques to determine OPS for CRSNs. However, it is observed that under high interference from the surrounding users, it is not possible to determine a feasible optimal packet size of data transmission under the simple point-to-point CRSN network topology. This is contributed primarily due to the peak transmit power constraint of the cognitive nodes. To address this specific challenge, this paper proposes a Multiple Input Multiple Output based Cognitive Radio Sensor Networks (MIMO-CRSNs) architecture for futuristic technologies like Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. A joint optimization problem is formulated taking into account network constraints like the overall end to end latency, interference duration caused to the non-cognitive users, average BER and transmit power.We propose our Algorithm-1 based on generic exhaustive search technique blue to solve the optimization problem. Furthermore, a low complexity suboptimal Algorithm-2 based on solving classical Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) conditions is proposed. These algorithms for MIMO-CRSNs are implemented in conjunction with two different channel access schemes. These channel access schemes are Time Slotted Distributed Cognitive Medium Access Control denoted as MIMO-DTS-CMAC and CSMA/CA assisted Centralized Common Control Channel based Cognitive Medium Access Control denoted as MIMO-CC-CMAC. Simulations reveal that the proposed MIMO based CRSN network outperforms the conventional point-to-point CRSN network in terms of overall energy consumption. Moreover, the proposed Algorithm-1 and Algorithm2 shows perfect match and the implementation complexity of Algorithm-2 is much lesser than Algorithm-1. Algorithm-1 takes almost 680 ms to execute and provides OPS value for a given number of users while Algorithm- 2 takes 4 to 5 ms on an average to find the optimal packet size for the proposed MIMO-CRSN framework.
