Abstract

This paper examines the new Licensed Shared Access spectrum sharing case in Finland. Functionality of mobile communication market and architecture define how mobile subscribers behave both technically and economically. If the mobile services fit together, interfaces between elements and services are the key. Definition of interfaces exists between new mobile devices, mobile and fixed networks and content services. In wireless radio communication additional spectrum possibilities are researched and developed to optimize mobile network performance in various ways. While evaluating mobile communication competition, MNOs try to make the best possible solutions in engineering, regulation and technology. The mobile communication market status changes rapidly due to small cell market developments, mobile device development, discussions and cooperation in standards and regulatory development. Additional spectrum usage and payment principles in spectrum sharing are also important. As the spectrum management regulation adapts prospect of widespread sharing there are issues to consider enhancing flexible usage rights.
