Abstract [en]

In this paper low cost concepts for future wireless access are presented and discussed from the business perspective. Instead of extending today’s cellular technology or to focus on the bandwidth efficiency of the radio equipment, the chosen approach focus on reduction of costs for network deployment and operation. Adaptive antennas (MIMO), multihop schemes and local access points are combined with user deployed infrastructure and reuse of existing network assets.   Business models candidates are analysed, showing that all proposed low cost solutions can be used either by local network operators (LNOs) in close cooperation with mobile operators (network franchising)  or to be user deployed using a traditional subscriber model. MIMO and multihop relays require close integration into the cellular network implying that these solutions would be less suitable for an independent LNO.
