Abstract
In established communication systems prices are determined quasi-static and for a large area
according to a fixed price model. Additionally, the main decision criteria of resource allocation is the
arrival time of resource requests. This system approach is not able to respond to the spatial
distributed and dynamic users’ demand and willingness-to-pay. In this paper a system will be
proposed to combine pricing, allocation and billing in order to react dynamically and locally to the
market assuming that the user terminal has cognitive radio abilities and multiple interfaces.
