Business models and resource management for shared wireless networks
2004 (English)In: VTC2004-FALL: 2004 IEEE 60TH VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE, VOLS 1-7 - WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES FOR GLOBAL SECURITY, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2004, 3393-3397 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we analyze main use cases for sharing wireless access networks between multiple operators and service providers. Network sharing has been proposed as a metho l to lower roll-out costs for 3G operators in Europe, and is widely used in WLAN systems where local access providers offer wireless access to service providers. A similar structure also exist in cellular networks where Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) provide mobile services without having a mobile network of their own. The development points at a further fragmentation of wireless access networks into specialized service providers that connect to local service and access providers, possibly via an inter-connection provider serving with core network functionality. In this context, we propose a framework for how radio resources could be managed using Service Level Agreements (SLA) and analyze key differences between the SLA for different types of service and network providers.
