Spectrum sharing encompasses several techniques – some administrative, technical and market-based. Spectrum can be shared in several dimensions; time, space and geography. Limiting transmit power is also a factor which can be utilized to permit sharing. Low power devices in the spectrum commons operate on the basis of that principle characteristic: propagation - and as we shall see later with Dynamic Access Spectrum Sharing - which takes advantage of power and interference reduction techniques. Sharing can also be accomplished through licensing and/or commercial arrangements involving spectrum leases and spectrum trading.
