Network sharing

Reduce the total cost of network ownership

The popularity of mobile communications is evidenced by its 5 billion plus unique subscribers worldwide, most of whom use it without a thought for the complex technology and business set-up necessary to support it. For operators the industry can be very rewarding; equally it can be very challenging. While traffic has grown significantly, operator revenues have not grown in unison. Network sharing is not only a qualified approach in helping to mitigate some of the challenges operators face, it is also quantified. Managed well, network sharing can help reduce costs, maximize efficiency while increasing competitiveness and enhancing customer satisfaction.
