-physical space – such as sites, shelters, towers/masts, cabinets, poles, ducts and trenches
-technical facilities – such as power supply, battery back-up, air conditioning, utilities, alarm installation and in-house wiring.
-Active network sharing refers to sharing of active electronic infrastructure and radio spectrum. It includes antennas, feeder cables, RAN, BTS/Node B, BSC/RNC, fixed and wireless backhaul (transmission) equipment, and radio spectrum.
