Infrastructure Sharing Agreement

While network infrastructure has been an important asset, the deployment of smart equipment has changed the landscape of the mobile sector and competition has shifted from infrastructure competitiveness to service competitiveness (i.e., it is more important for subscribers to use different services). Analysys Mason`s breakdown of CAPEX and OPEX shows why sharing infrastructure can potentially reduce costs as much. For CAPEX, construction, rigging, materials and energy (i.e. the deployment of access to power grids to connect base stations to electricity) account for more than 50% of capex for both developed and emerging countries. The distribution of these costs can significantly reduce costs and some operators have seen the total cost of operations decrease by 35-40% through the sharing of passive infrastructure. For OPEX, land leasing, electricity and backhaul are made up of more than half of OPEX in developed markets and nearly half of OPEX in emerging countries. Again, sharing these components can significantly reduce costs. As with contractors, municipalities or government can become infrastructure providers through a public-private partnership. Public-private partnership is the place where municipalities act as third parties and where the private sector (mobile operator) partially funds the investment, while the infrastructure is leased. Like autonomous driving, it would be difficult for road infrastructure owners (for example.

B streetlights, traffic lights and track control) provide mes of two to four operators for connecting and coordinating the connection. On the contrary, it would be easier and cheaper for operators to share the infrastructure in the deployment and operating processes. The dominant classification criterion for network sharing is technology. The following figure gives an overview of the types of infrastructure sharing, depending on which features can be released. In order to ensure effective internal coverage to meet the participant`s connectivity needs, each space/space/space inside a building must have a supplied and wired cell. In this case, the use of cells and the wiring of cells of two to four operators would not only result in considerable infrastructure costs for the mobile phone industry, but also complexities for building owners (for example. B, civil work and wire coordination). It may be better for operators to share the infrastructure in these locations during the deployment process and, therefore, to share the maintenance and operation of the shared infrastructure. Building owners can become a third-party supplier that provides and operates the network that will be leased to operators.

A good example of Tower Company is edotco, which is owned by the Asian telecommunications group with six subsidiaries (Axiata Group). It offers end-to-end solutions in the area of leased tower services, co-locations, build-to-follows, energy, transmission and operation and maintenance (O-M). Since August 2017, edotco has operated and managed a regional portfolio of more than 26,000 towers in the main markets of Malaysia, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan, with 18,461 towers operated directly by edotco and 8,100 other towers managed by a number of services.
