Design of the European mobile network operator for research
EuWireless aims to explore technical, legal, and economic solutions for mobile network providers to share infrastructure with universities, research centers, and small businesses, focusing on viable network sharing mechanisms and examining range, access nodes, transport, and core network.
|2018 - 2019
|The aim of the EuWireless project is to study the technical, legal, and economic solutions that encourage mobile network providers to share their infrastructures with universities, research centers, and small businesses. On a technical level, the project aims to design viable solutions for sharing parts of the mobile network with the research community. This will be achieved by first examining current mechanisms and those under development to share the range, access nodes, transport network, and core network. For instance, while the MOCN and DECOR solutions will be considered, the project will also advance in sharing solutions as defined in 5G networks (slicing mechanisms for services with SDN, NFV, 5Gcore, etc).
From a legal standpoint, the project will complete a study on all European countries to identify possible regulatory barriers, proposing workable solutions for each country. On an economic level, the project will identify business models that ensure commercial operators directly benefit from the controlled transfer of their resources for research purposes.
