This paper studies how the spectrum regulation could change in the future open spectrum communication systems. Due to their huge success in short-range communication systems (WiFi, Zigbee, etc.,), broader area telecommunication providers might mimic the open spectrum philosophy to their systems. Nevertheless, current wireless open spectrum systems are not designed for wide areas and they do not provide QoS to their users. This paper proposes an alternative to the nowadays open spectrum systems in order to fulfill those requirements. Optimal power transmission strategies are derived. Numerical results show the performance of the authors' proposal.
