5G Spectrum Sharing: A Network Economics View
Wednesday Aug 22nd 11:00am EDT | 10:00am CDT
Randall Berry, Lorraine Morton Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Northwestern University
About the Webinar
Utilizing novel forms of spectrum is a key enabler for meeting the needs of 5G. Examples include shared spectrum as in the CBRS framework and and tighter integration of unlicensed and licensed spectrum. These approach will impact not only the technical performance of networks but the economic incentives of service providers as they make decisions about what technologies to deploy and how they compete. This talk will examine several of these issues and discuss network economic models that can be used to gain insight into them.
