A Future Wireless Internet Beyond Generations

The use of licensed spectrum for wireless communication is driven by the need to control interference between operators. This regulation leads to inefficient utilization of spectrum and causes shortage of free spectrum that hinders the entry of new operators and introduction of new wireless technologies. In this work, we present an evolutionary model for which license-free operation is the spectrum sharing mode so that networks can be built freely by anyone and new technologies can be deployed as soon as they become available. The paradigm assumes users to have open access to all public networks without prior contracts with operators. Hence, freely roaming users will drive competition among wireless network access providers, who in turn can meet demand quickly by offering access at low price, high quality, in hitherto uncovered areas, and by means of novel superior technology. We present a straw-man design and discuss the inherent technical challenges that must be addressed.
