Looking into the concept of next-generation (5G) cellular systems, it is necessary to do a revision of existing radio spectrum management techniques and come up with more flexible solutions. A new wave of spectrum policy reforms can be envisaged with a direction shift from static to dynamic optimization. According to the peak hours, the number of served users in mobile networks is increasing. Since the radio spectrum is limited, cognitive radio (CR) technology provides an opportunity to recognize under-utilized cellular spectrum (licensed band) resources. To this end, efficient spectrum management techniques based on CR technology should be implemented to share the spectrum between different types of users in order to maximize spectrum utilization and spectral efficiency. In this work, we present dynamic decision-based spectrum sharing model among multiple classes of users in CR network (CRN) in order to increase network utilization and the quality of experience (QoE) by increasing the users' satisfaction. Obtained simulation results from created toolkit in Matlab tool (calibrated by data set from real 3GGP LTE-Advanced system) show the performance of the developed model and appropriate user selection among multiple users' types.
