1  ScopeWord‑p. 7

The present document provides a study on scenarios of multiple operators sharing radio network resources and creates potential requirements that complement existing system capabilities for sharing common RAN resources.
The scenarios illustrate e.g.:
  • Means for efficiently sharing common RAN resources according to identified RAN sharing scenarios (e.g. pooling of unallocated radio resources).
  • Means to verify that the shared network elements provide allocated RAN resources according to sharing agreements/policies.
  • Indication of and potential actions upon overload situation in consideration of sharing agreements/policies.

Participating Operator:
Operator that uses allocated shared RAN resources provided by a Hosting RAN Provider under agreement.
Wholesale charging:
This is the charging by the Hosting RAN Provider of any usage of a Shared RAN by subscribers of a Participating Operator.
