Abstract [en]

Femtocell technology and TV White Space are two dierent entities that have not been thoroughly researched under the common goal of indoor mobile broadband access. In this thesis the combination of these two technologies is examined through the prism of four dierent actors: Mobile Network Operator, Facility Owner, Wi-Fi operator and TV White Space Only operator.

The aim is to discover access benets and evaluate the business feasibility of open access femtocell networks using TV White Space for each individual actor. The work done, diers from related papers which focus on interference analysis, technical design and MNO deployment schemes as by using the business feasibility analysis both technological and economic aspects are taken into account for new market players as well.

It is shown with no doubt that national roaming agreements is one of the most important aspects any market player should take into account before proceeding with any business plan. Additionally, the analysis found that the secondary usage of TV white space is technologically and economically feasible but no solid benets were identied that can overthrow existing indoor mobile broadband implementations like the Wi-Fi systems. However the primary usage of femto-TVWS is still recommended for some actors like the mobile network operator and the facility owner and the complimentary usage by the Wi-Fi operator.
