This presentation proposes a new finite-source retrial queueing model to consider spectrum renting in mobile cellular networks, in which service providers may rent each other’s unutilized frequency bands. We present a novel way to take into account the renting fee, which can be used to fine-tune the operation of the spectrum renting procedure. Numerical results show that, at high loads, it is still desirable to initiate a spectrum renting request, even if no discount is offered by the frequency bands' owners.
