Sharing the spectrum among mobile network operators (MNOs) is a promising approach to improve the spectrum utilization and to increase the monetary income of MNOs. In this paper, we model a nonorthogonal spectrum sharing system for a large-scale cellular network where multiple seller MNOs lease their licensed sub-bands to several buyer MNOs. We first analyze the per-user expected rate and the per-MNO expected profit using stochastic geometry. Then, we formulate the joint problem of power…

Stochastic Geometry Analysis of Spectrum Sharing Among Seller and Buyer Mobile Operators

This paper model and analyze a non-orthogonal spectrum sharing system consisting of seller and buyer MNOs where buyer M NOs can lease several licensed sub-bands from different seller MNOS, and derives expressions for the downlink signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio coverage probability and the average rate of both seller and seller networks.

Dynamic Inter-Operator Spectrum Sharing via Lyapunov Optimization

The problem of spectrum sharing between two operators in a dynamic network is considered and it is shown that there is a trade-off between the achieved profits of the operators and the network congestion.

On spectrum sharing among micro-operators in 5G

This work model and analyze a spectrum sharing system involving micro-operators (MOs) where a buyer MO buys multiple licensed subbands provided by the regulator, and provides a greedy algorithm to find how manylicensed subbands and which subband the buyer MO should purchase from the regulator.

Cooperative Infrastructure and Spectrum Sharing in Heterogeneous Mobile Networks

Two cooperative game models are proposed to address the problem of radio access network and spectrum sharing in 4G mobile networks by focusing on a case when multiple MNOs plan to deploy small cell base stations in a geographical area in order to upgrade their existing network infrastructure.

Dynamic Spectrum Sharing Optimization and Post-Optimization Analysis With Multiple Operators in Cellular Networks

Two optimization models using stochastic optimization algorithms in which the secondary operator spends the minimal cost and gains the maximal profit to achieve the target grade of service (GoS) assuming unrestricted budget are proposed.

A Multi-Leader Multi-Follower Stackelberg Game for Resource Management in LTE Unlicensed

A multi-operator multi-UE Stackelberg game to analyze the interaction between multiple operators and the UEs subscribed to the services of the operators in unlicensed spectrum and considers two possible scenarios for the interaction of operators in the un licensed spectrum.

Dynamics of Multiple-Seller and Multiple-Buyer Spectrum Trading in Cognitive Radio Networks: A Game-Theoretic Modeling Approach

The proposed game-theoretic framework for modeling the interactions among multiple primary users (or service providers) and multiple secondary users is used to investigate network dynamics under different system parameter settings and under system perturbation.

QoE-Enabled Unlicensed Spectrum Sharing in 5G: A Game-Theoretic Approach

Simulation results show that the proposed approach can better protect the performance of Wi-Fi users compared to the conventional listen-before-talk scheme and the stability of VCFG and optimal sharing time are proved.

Distributed Resource Allocation for Network Slicing Over Licensed and Unlicensed Bands

A novel inter-operator network slicing framework in which multiple mobile network operators (MNOs) can coordinate and jointly slice their accessible spectrum resources in both licensed and unlicensed bands is introduced.

Sharing of Unlicensed Spectrum by Strategic Operators

Numerical results show that the proposed dynamic sharing scheme outperforms static sharing, which in turn achieves much higher revenue than uncoordinated full-spectrum sharing.
