Flexible resource sharing at short time scales in multi-tenant shared radio access networks has proven to be quite a challenge. In this study, we develop a techno-economic model that enables dynamic short-term resource sharing as well as resource pricing, while simultaneously collecting revenue for network expansion. In order to regulate the resource costs and to prevent monopolization of resources, we define a unit cost of resources which can be scaled dynamically. The proposed framework allows operators to meet their individual utility targets while optimizing their expenditures based on their respective budgets. This work demonstrates that dynamic short timescale resource sharing can help network operators achieve their utility targets while minimizing their total expenditure.
