Traditional models for managing radio spectrum are incompatible a future that entails decentralized, distributed, and dynamic frameworks for sharing spectrum among devices, applications, network infrastructure, and end-users. Supporting the future wireless ecosystem will require new public/private institutional, legal, and market mechanisms. Our goal is to design practical solutions to facilitate the transition to a future where spectrum sharing is accomplished via markets rather than regulatory fiat — for a future with both flexible-licensed and open-access spectrum.
Research topics include:
- Market mechanisms for spectrum management
- Building the ecosystem to commercialize dynamic spectrum access technology
- Managing Shared Access to a Spectrum Commons, William Lehr and Jon Crowcroft, September 18, 2005.
- Toward More Efficient Spectrum Management, Spectrum Working Group and William Lehr, March 2014
