MSO & MNO Small Cell Business Partnership Model

  • Glapa M.
  • Patil G.

Evaluate the wireless business opportunity & strategy for an MSO to deploy a Small Cell Network for MNOs leveraging existing Cable assets and Wi-Fi network deployment Key Objectives of the analysis are to: Evaluate MNO Value Proposition: Evaluate and compare the MNO costs for deploying small cell and Wi-Fi coverage themselves versus paying MSO a recurring charge for turn-key small cell services – site survey, design, installation & commissioning, site acquisition/rental, power, backhaul, maintenance Evaluate MSO Wi-Fi and Small Cell Business Case: Consider MNO related revenues from Wi-Fi Offload and Small Cells services Provide Recommendations: on pricing strategies for Wi-Fi offload and small cell services to MNOs

  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
