Exploiting hybrid models for spectrum access: Building on the capabilities of geolocation databases
Current approaches to managing spectrum are polarized and inflexible. They underplay the value that license exemption and opportunistic access could deliver. This paper describes how new geolocation database technology could enable the use of hybrid models combining the advantages of licensing with those of license exemption. It considers how such models could help accelerate infrastructure investment for wireless broadband access, as well as facilitating innovation in wireless technology and services.
