Small-group workshop on building shared 4G / 5G infrastructure, including private wholesale networks

On November 21st 2019, Disruptive Analysis' Dean Bubley & Viatec's Peter Curnow-Ford will run our 2nd workshop (our 1st event in July ’19 was a great success) in London covering one of the most interesting topics in telecoms technology and mobile business models: Neutral Hosts Networks (NHNs) with an updated agenda reflecting new developments, greater discussion around MNOs and verticals.

NHNs are open-access 4G or 5G mobile networks, using their own infrastructure - and increasingly their own spectrum - as a wholesale platform for national operators, or new niche/MVNO providers. NHN models are evolving everywhere where coverage, siting or economics pose challenges for national MNOs - indoor, rural, metro, verticals including road/rail.
The workshop will cover: The key uses for NHN deployment are:

  • Technology, including 5G, small cells, network-slicing and Cloud-RAN
  • Business models, spanning in-building, city-wide & rural markets and verticals
  • MNOs – how revenues can be shared, amortisation, tariffing
  • Property companies – funding as part of property, investment bank criteria
  • Regulatory and economic aspects such as spectrum, wholesale and planning
  • Metropolitan centres needing 4G/5G densification with small cells
  • In-building, especially for large sites offices, stadiums, hotels and hospitals
  • Road and rail coverage (in-vehicle)
  • Industrial sites and transport hubs
  • Temporary sites and events (eg festivals, major construction projects)
  • Some classes of residential and SME commercial venue
