Abstract: Wireless data traffic has grown substantially and is expected to further increase in the coming years. Considering that 80% of the traffic will be generated indoors, it is important to investigate better ways of providing indoor capacity. Access to sufficient radio spectrum is one of the most important requirements for the indoor capacity provisioning.
In , a techno-economic framework to analyze capacity and cost of different spectrum combining options is presented. Spectrum combining is termed to refer to tilizing multiple types of spectrum authorization options for a wireless network. The proposed framework consists of identification of various spectrum options, capacity estimation under each option, and cost analysis. The framework can help network providers determine the most cost-effective spectrum acquisition strategy which can meet capacity demand in indoor environments.
