The first commercial products of 5G will be released within 2020 and therefore, it becomes an absolute necessity to research whether the key enabling technologies are advantageous for the operators to invest in. One of the most fundamental technologies Cognitive Radio (CR), since there is not much research in the field. This paper develops a techno-economic framework for the CR technology and is contrasted with an already existing model for Software Defined Networks (SDN). A Sensitivity Analysis (SA) indicates the cost parameters that are the most expensive ones and should be reconsidered for the model’s wide adoption and viability.
