Abstract

Nowadays, users rapidly augment and need more efficient and better-quality network coverage. Therefore, the available spectrum is not able to meet these excessive demands. Several novel technologies and approaches are introduced into the 5G networks. One of these is the MiliMeter Wave (MMWave) spectrum. In this paper, a techno-economic analysis of the MMWave compared to the Mid-Band Spectrum (MBS) is developed. The technologies are analyzed in a technical way. Mathematical models that help determining the models’ pricing are analyzed. What is more, several experiments are conducted using the Sensitivity Analysis (SA) technique determining if the advantages and profits outweigh the disadvantages.
