DSS; LTE; NR; Spectrum sharing

Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) is an enabler for a seamless transition from 4G Long TermEvolution (LTE) to 5G New Radio (NR) by utilizing existing LTE bands without static spectrum re-farming. In this paper, we propose a cross-band DSS scheme that utilizes the Multimedia BroadcastMulticast Service over a Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) feature of an LTE network and theMulticast Broadcast Service (MBS) feature of an NR network.
