Abstract

Spectrum availability is challenged everyday as the consumer consumption of mobile data increases. At the same time, the public safety and military authorities have the need to secure spectrum access for their mandated tasks that may vary temporally and spatially. Current spectrum administration and management schemes do not facilitate such short-term changes in time and space. In this paper, we show that minor adjustments to the Licensed Shared Access (LSA) scheme, and introduction of a spectrum manager function may provide administrations the tools to adjust spectrum assignments in time and space, so that they provide Mobile Network Operators sufficient security of spectrum access to justify investments, and that they allow authorities to access spectrum when their legally mandated tasks so require.
