Access network sharing between two telecommunication operators

Coauthors: Ouorou Adam, Pascual Fanny, Bouhtou Mustapha, Chr├ętienne Philippe


We study the sharing of an existing radio access network (set of base stations antennas) between two telecommunication operators. For each base station, an operator has to decide whether it covers it, in which case it gains a profit, or not. This profit may be different if it is alone to cover the base station, or if both operators cover the base station (by covering a same base station, both operators decrease their costs, but they may also cover less clients). We model this situation by a game, where each agent is an operator and the strategy set of each agent is the set of base stations it covers. We study the existence of Nash equilibria, the price of anarchy and the price of stability for various settings. We also study how the agents may cooperate so that both obtain larger profits than in a Nash equilibrium. Finally, we conduct experiments to measure the gain obtained.
