14. A dynamic spectrum arbitrage (DSA) system, comprising:
an eNodeB comprising an eNodeB processor;
a dynamic spectrum controller (DSC) comprising DSC processor coupled to the eNodeB via a first communication link; and
a dynamic spectrum policy controller (DPC) comprising a DPC processor coupled to the DSC via a second communication link,
wherein the DSC processor is configured with processor executable instruction to perform operations comprising:
generating a grid-map structure that includes a primary grid structure that identifies telecommunication cells in a geographical area;
monitoring locations of wireless devices with respect to the telecommunication cells of the grid-map structure;
receiving updated information from the monitored wireless devices;
updating the grid-map structure based on the updated information received from the monitored wireless devices; and
determining whether to initiate inter-network handover operations based on the locations of the wireless devices with respect to the telecommunication cells in the updated grid-map structure.
