After Sewol ferry disaster occurred in April 2014, Korean government began investing to deploy LTE-based public safety network until the year of 2017. In order to reduce the operating and capital costs, resource sharing scheme among public safety network and commercial LTE networks is considered as one of the viable approaches. This thesis proposes a method of allocating bandwidth of public safety network based on various priorities required for disaster scenarios and stages in a resource sharing environment. In order to obtain the highest efficiency, we formulate the bandwidth allocation problem as a Fractional Knapsack Problem. Greedy algorithm was applied to solve the problem. For performance evaluation, we created several disaster scenarios and set suitable parameters for each scenario based on a disaster manual. The proposed method is compared with two typical methods, which are Class-based bandwidth allocation and Uniform bandwidth allocation. The results showed that the better performance in terms of the sum of the values and the amount of lost bytes.
