Search Inside

‘Inside-out’ is one way towards a converged world based on millions of small cells – fixed and cable operators have a real current cost advantage over mobile operators working ‘outside-in’.

The 'inside-out' approach to wireless network provision describes a strategy fixed and cable operators are adopting to develop low-cost, high-capacity vast national public heterogeneous networks (HetNets) and services on the back of their existing fixed broadband access infrastructure. All cells and access points operate in open-access mode, and additional capacity for areas with no coverage is provided on a wholesale basis by a mobile network operator. The approach could be successful, profitable, and
disruptive to legacy mobile operators.

This report analyses the technical and commercial challenges that operators adopting the ‘inside-out’ approach to wireless network roll-out will face.

The report:
defines the approach and investigates the business drivers and opportunities
assesses the technical challenges, including choice of spectrum, interference, cell identity management, the suitability of fixed broadband as backhaul and alternative approaches to fixed–mobile convergence (FMC)
assesses the commercial challenges around scale, distribution, wholesale contracts and pricing, and offers a top-level total cost of ownership model
provides recommendations for fixed, cable and mobile operators, as well as for network equipment providers (NEPs).
