Business analysis of flexible roaming and operator cooperation in multi-provider markets - Impact on traffic load distribution and user experience
2007 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
The Ambient networks concepts will enable operators to co-operate in new ways and allow users to connect to a multitude of “visited networks” although the user is within coverage of the “home network”. In this paper we will investigate how operators and users can exploit the flexibility in selection among different access options. More specific questions are:
- How will traffic load and network utilization change?
- Will the user experience mainly be of the type “freedom to choose” or will the service quality be improved?
- What impact will different types of operator cooperation and agreements have?
