This position paper presents a new approach to infrastructure sharing for mobile networks based on the idea that network resources, both at the wireless access and the core network, can be traded dynamically on a real-time market where virtual operators or tenants compete to obtain the resources to serve their users. The negotiation procedure can be automated by allowing tenants to define their policies, objectives and constraints and designing a pricing approach that can guarantee fairness. Moreover, the whole system can be made controllable by a regulation authority that can use global constraints and pricing policies in order to guarantee fair competition, social benefits, and a level of revenues for the infrastructure providers able to guarantee capacity expansion and technology update.

Abstract

This position paper presents a new approach to infrastructure sharing for mobile networks based on the idea that network resources, both at the wireless access and the core network, can be traded dynamically on a real-time market where virtual operators or tenants compete to obtain the resources to serve their users. The negotiation procedure can be automated by allowing tenants to define their policies, objectives and constraints and designing a pricing approach that can guarantee fairness. Moreover, the whole system can be made controllable by a regulation authority that can use global constraints and pricing policies in order to guarantee fair competition, social benefits, and a level of revenues for the infrastructure providers able to guarantee capacity expansion and technology update.
