Name: Design of the European mobile network operator for research
Objectives: 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 centres and small businesses. On a technical level, the aim of the project is to design viable solutions for sharing parts of the mobile network with the research community. This will be acheived by first examining current mechanisms and those under development, to share the range, the access nodes, the transport network and the core network. For instance, although 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, within the project, a study on all European countries will be completed to identify possible regulatory barriers so as to propose workable solutions for each country. On an economic level the project will identify those business models which will ensure that commercial operators directly benefit from the controlled transfer of their resources for research purposes.
