This study investigates the co-existence of fifth generation (5G) mobile communication systems and fixed service (FS) in the 28-GHz band through the utilization and modification of an existing spectrum-sharing method known as the advanced minimum coupling loss (A-MCL) model. The proposed model is based on the power spectral density (PSD) overlap between the 5G orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)-based system and the FS. Spectrum-sharing studies typically need 5G parameters, such as the spectrum emission mask (SEM); however, no such information is available for the new system to achieve accurate results. The proposed model is suitable for spectrum-sharing studies between 5G and other wireless systems without the need for the 5G SEM. Moreover, the existing model is implemented in a new application (i.e., 5G) in the 28-GHz band with different 5G bandwidths. Furthermore, the FS parameters and its frequency allocation are selected based on the Canadian standards to obtain preliminary results for the co-existence between the 5G system and the FS. Results show that co-existence is feasible when certain distances are applied, especially with higher 5G bandwidths (such as 0.5 and 1 GHz) when the 5G system acts as an interferer. In addition, the antenna position plays a major role in reducing the required separation distances between the victim receiver and the interfering transmitter. This model can be used for any future mobile generation such as the sixth generation (6G) mobile system if its PSD is known. This study is concurrent with the worldwide spectrum-sharing studies requested by the International Telecommunication Union for WRC-19.
