Abstract

See full text

Various methods and devices are provided to address the need for improved spectrum sharing. In one method, a broker network receives (501) from each bidder network of a group of bidder networks, a request for a spectrum allocation. The broker network sends (502) to the group of bidder networks an indication of a price and receives (503) from each bidder network an indication of accepted bandwidth corresponding to the price. Until (504) a broker exit condition is satisfied, the broker network iteratively performs the following: generates (505) a new price from the current price, sends (506) an indication of the new price to the group of bidder networks, and receives (507) an indication of accepted bandwidth corresponding to the new price from each bidder network of the group of bidder networks.
