© 1986-2012 IEEE. Future 5G networks aspire to enable new services with vastly different data rate, latency and scalability requirements. The consensus is that these new services will fall into three categories: eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC. Due to unique characteristics of these services and the limited availability of finite spectrum resources, 5G will need to carefully map appropriate bands and spectrum usage models for each service. The SAS is an emerging spectrum sharing model that is gaining momentum in the U.S. SAS presents an opportunity for operators to access the 3.5 GHz military radar band for commercial use. This article discusses the feasibility of the current SAS model in the context of mMTC. We propose a scalable SAS framework that can manage the mMTC uplink interference to the incumbent with less overhead. The simulation setup models the interference levels in New York City and its surrounding counties. The results show that mMTC uplink transmission can be enabled using our framework even on the coast of New York, where mMTC density is high, without causing a harmful level of interference to the incumbent.
