Through wholesale capacity models, we can be your partner for unlocking further value from network sharing.
Market developments are driving the development of the traditional network sharing to provide larger savings than might be achieved through operator JVs alone.
Network sharing is becoming an established model in the mobile telecom industry. It has been around almost since the start of the mobile industry in the 1980s. Many operators around the globe are engaged in some form of network sharing, typically in the form of roaming, site sharing and active network sharing.
Adding further value to the network sharing model, the wholesale model is a way for industry players – operators, vendors, investors and regulators – to jointly capture opportunities and drive the development of the industry. The principle behind a wholesale model is that the existing or newly built network assets are off-loaded to a 3rd party and then provided as a service to multiple operators in an open or closed model.
We are together with operators world-wide exploring and offering wholesale models for RAN, backhaul, core and fiber networks where there is clear market logic for sharing. Such service can be measured in terms of capacity, coverage and end-user functionality. It is based on Service Level Agreements with end-user perceived Key Performance Indicators.
