This paper proposes a sharing scenario based on License Shared Access (LSA) framework with coexistence management between licensed Mobile Network Operator (MNO) and vertical MNOs. This allows the primary LSA license holder to lease the spectrum to the vertical operators when it is not used by the primary operator. We demonstrate the system in a real network consisting of two LTE-A base stations and core network, LSA Repository and LSA Controller. Furthermore, we implement the communication of the relevant network configuration parameters between the LSA Controllers in order to enable coexistence with interference-free conditions.
