Claim of US Patent No. 10,973,027

18. A non-transitory machine-readable medium, comprising executable instructions that, when executed by a processor, facilitate performance of operations, comprising:monitoring usage data indicative of usage of access network resources by user equipment that are coupled to network equipment;
based on an analysis of the usage data, determining spectrum allocation data that is employable to allocate respective carrier frequencies for specified types of the user equipment, wherein the specified types comprise a first specified type and at least a second specified type, wherein a first carrier frequency of the respective carrier frequencies is to be utilized by first user equipment that comprise the first specified type to communicate with the network equipment and a second carrier frequency of the respective carrier frequencies is to be utilized by second user equipment that comprise the second specified type to communicate with the network equipment;
reallocating spectrum from the first user equipment to the second user equipment based on a detected change in usage of spectrum resources by at least one of the first user equipment or the second user equipment;
facilitating a transmission of a message to the first user equipment, wherein the message comprises an instruction that instructs the first user equipment to utilize a specified carrier frequency of the respective carrier frequencies that corresponds to a category to which the first user equipment is determined to belong; and
directing, to an internet of things control center device associated, the spectrum allocation data that is employable to facilitate the transmission of the message from the internet of things control center device to the first user equipment.
