A review of regulation surrounding spectrum sharing for multi-operator small cells finds that in most countries there are unlikely to be any fundamental legal obstacles which would prevent multi-operator radio access network (MOCN) deployments.

Spectrum sharing is possible through joint ventures in some regions and license trading/leasing arrangements in others.

New schemes are being defined for Licensed Shared Access in Europe and Authorised Shared Access in the US, which could bring further opportunities for multi-operator small cells in the near future.
