book description
New network and business architectures/Novel Access Provisioning (NAP) with low cost factors are necessary to promote development of extensive usage of a multitude of high data rate wireless services similar to the Internet. The NAP project focus in particular on the investigation of possibilities in local access and service provisioning as a complement to existing Mobile Network Operators. We expect that successful high bandwidth mobility services require more than local coverage. Many local access providers need to cooperate to make the service reasonably accessible. Those can then be used to offload heavy and less price worthy traffic e.g. large down loads from the cellular network to local access points. Different drivers of new market players and business models are analyzed.
