DSM Vision: Spectrum Sharing will be the norm Spectrum Manager Shared Spectrum Public Safety/Government (Tier 1) Military (Tier 1) Small Cell LTE or Wi-Fi Network (Tier 2) Macro LTE Network (Tier 2) Spectrum Request Ad-hoc, Consumer, Smart Grid (Tier 3)

Spectrum Sharing and How Its Shaping Up within the Ecosystem Regulatory bodies want to see more efficient use of allocated spectrum: reallocating underutilized spectrum is very expensive and time-consuming TVWS remains a solid scenario, but the scope of spectrum sharing has broadened and other use cases have emerged: Licensed Shared Access (LSA)3-Tier models blending in licensed and opportunistic access, e.g. PCAST FCCs proposal to share 3.5GHz federal band and European initiative in GHz band are notices of intent to take spectrum sharing broader Small Cells is a common theme across almost all use cases Cell densification strategies to provide supplemental capacity where needed Use of alternate spectrum sources to avoid interference with macro cellular layer Technology will need to evolve to efficiently enable sharing: interference management, channel management, co-existence mechanisms, opportunistic access, etc Spectrum sharing will most likely impose power limits which will force the migration towards smaller cells: note the trend towards smaller cells is currently happening due to increased wireless capacity demand The trend towards small cells also pushes the industry towards cheap and available spectrum such as shared spectrum (i.e. ISM, TVWS, etc)

Taxonomy of Spectrum Allocation Models Exclusive Use Unlicensed Spectrum Sharing Opportunistic Access (e.g. TVWS) Licensed Shared Access (LSA) Hybrid (e.g. PCAST) Incumbent Opportunistic Incumbent Licensed Incumbent Licensed Opportunistic.. Licensed approach (e.g. Cellular). Auctions of cleared spectrum. Unlicensed approach (e.g. Wi-Fi) Evidence of All Three Spectrum Sharing Models Emerging

Public Safety Network (Tier 1) Small Cell Operated by MNO (Tier 2) Channel Unused Turn on Small Cells Cellular Operator Sharing Spectrum Owned by Public Safety Organization Cellular operator with macro network leverages spectrum owned by public safety organization, when not used by public safety org. Based on Spectrum Sharing agreement between the two Tier 2 Operator moves users/ traffic to Small Cells Only Licensed access (no Opportunistic access) => more guaranteed QoS for Tier 2 operator Spectrum bands under consideration in Europe: GHz Licensed Shared Access (LSA) Small Cell Operated by MNO (Tier 2) Cellular Operator Leverages Public Safety Spectrum to Augment Capacity

Macro Cell (Tier 1 Operator) Wi-Fi User (Tier 3) Small Cell (Tier 2 Operator) Tier 1 Not Using Tier 2 Uses 3-Tier Framework for Licensed and Opportunistic Sharing of Federal Spectrum Tier 2 (Priority Access) uses Tier 1 spectrum when Incumbent not using Tier 3 (General Authorized Access) leverages spectrum when Tiers 1 & 2 not using FCC has proposed releasing 3550 – 3700 MHz spectrum as first spectrum sharing target Incumbents: Naval Radar ( MHz) and Fixed Satellite systems ( MHz) Likely to be a critical test case for spectrum sharing in other federal bands Sharing Federal Spectrum – PCAST Model Tier 2 Not Using Tier 3 Uses Provide protection of the incumbent, reliable operation for priority users and opportunistic access for general users

LTE or Wi-Fi Using Supplemental Channels Works as Super-WiFi or for congestion relief, and provides extended range and improved wall penetration Potentially attractive to cellular operators as license-exempt adjunct for offloading Potential Small Cell use case for LTE – deploying TVWS spectrum in Small Cell to mitigate interference to/from Macro Cell Sensing, channel aggregation and low- power transmission are key for extracting capacity in dense urban areas Wi-Fi range extension of particular interest to new entrants – fostering ubiquitous access to consumers (eyeballs) using Wi-Fi Use Case: Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing for Access (e.g. Leveraging TVWS) Wi-Fi w/ TVWS Spectrum Wi-Fi LTE TVWS Macro Cell Small Cell
