Description

The skyrocketing growth of mobile internet and internet of things is overwhelming the limited spectrum supply, and thus triggering an urgent need for smarter and improved spectrum usage to eliminate the spectrum supply-demand gap. Spectrum sharing and spectrum aggregation are promising approaches to facilitate efficient use of fragmented and under-utilized spectrum. Many rapid advances, research opportunities and technical challenges are contiguously emerging. Motivated by these observations, this special issue aims to capture the state-of-the-art advances in spectrum sharing and aggregation, and foster new avenues for research in this area.
