- Today’s wireless access networks are built, monitored and managed through one administrative entity. Moreover often the administrative entity also develops and provides several network services (classical operator). Due to the high CAPEX of the classical wireless access networks they can only be economically successful if they can be used without modifications over a long time. Therefore it is difficult to integrate new services for the end users which thwarts the development of these services and thus restricts the maximum revenue for the network operators.
To overcome these restrictions we propose a new approach, which allows to distribute the operations performed by the former operator between different operation entities. Distribution of responsibilities through several entities (Operator, Service Provider) is very well known from the Internet and should be reproducible in wireless access networks. One key feature which enables the split into several operational entities is that the wireless access networks should be autonomic reconfigurable.
