Abstract

Spectrum is a resource of ever increasing scarcity, in particular for frequency bands below 6GHz. The dedicated allocation of spectrum for cellular applications will face its limits and new disruptive solutions need to be identified. Spectrum sharing is a key candidate solution in order to provide additional resources to commercial stakeholders. In Europe, the technology is currently being developed and trialled under the pseudonym Licensed Shared Access (LSA) in the 2.3-2.4 GHz band. In the US, the term Spectrum Access System (SAS) is used for 3.55-3.7 GHz. This chapter will give an overview on these technologies and illustrate the inherent potential for future wireless applications.
