This paper focuses on a distributed multiple spectrum pricing scheme to maximize system capacity in next generation multiaccess systems, where multimode user equipments (MUEs) can connect simultaneously to multiple base stations (BSs) with multiple radio access technologies (RATs). The multi-price based scheme provides a distributed decision making for an optimal solution where radio resource allocations are determined by each MUE, unlike most centralized mechanisms where BS controls the whole radio resource. By the proposed optimal solution, MUEs can decide their share of spectrum bands and power allocation according to the spectrum price of each RAT, and at the same time the multiaccess system can achieve maximized total throughput. Numerical analysis shows that the proposed scheme achieves the maximal capacity by distributed resource allocation for the multiaccess system.
