inCITES Consulting participates in the ETNO (European Telecommunications Network Operators' Association) regulatory summit 2018 where all European NRAs and incumbents meet to discuss hot topics in the regulatory space. This year’s focus is around 5G, spectrum policy and business models with very interesting ideas being shared by all panellists.
For around a decade, between 2008-16, both the fixed and mobile telecom market in W. Europe shrank (Figure 1) due to a number of reasons, ranging from price control regulation (see EU Roam like Home initiative) and the significant declines in the price per unit for all core telecom services to the disruption from OTT providers and change in consumer preferences.

As 2017 is coming to an end we would like to recap our 2017 activities and reflect on the lessons we learned from them during the outgoing year. 2017 was a very productive and pivotal year for inCITES Consulting.
In order to identify which factors are expected to be important to make 5G a success we put together a questionnaire and shared it with various telecoms experts. We then used the Fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (AHP) methodology to analyse the results.
The need for ubiquitous connectivity is going nowhere but up. This creates growth in data traffic which means higher need for data centers and investments. In fact, Data Centers have experienced significant growth in the recent years in terms of number of sites, capacity and the possible uses ranging from storage, computing power, analytics, search engines, social networking, streaming media etc.

inCITES Consulting participated in the GSMA Mobile 360 series – Europe to share ideas and debate around Europe’s Digital Single Market agenda, the current status of the Connected Cars market and how to attract and retain female talent in ICT so to close the existing gender gap.
According to 5GCity, delivering on the 5G promise of increased data rates, and ubiquitous coverages, poses stringent requirements on traditional vertically integrated operators. In particular, telecom operators are expected to massively roll out Small Cells, which requires finding appropriate urban spaces with both backhaul and energy availability. Network sharing becomes essential to unlock those commercial massive deployments.
SAINT proposes to analyse and identify incentives to improve levels of collaboration between cooperative and regulatory approaches to information sharing. Analysis of the ecosystems of cybercriminal activity, associated markets and revenues will drive the development of a framework of business models appropriate for the fighting of cybercrime. The role of regulatory approaches as a cost benefit in cybercrime reduction will be explored within a concept of greater collaboration in order to gain optimal attrition of cybercriminal activities.
inCITES participated in the preparation of the IEEE CSCN 2016 conference paper “Service Provisioning and Pricing Methods in a Multi-Tenant Cloud Enabled RAN”. This paper is an effort to identify and analyse different radio and cloud models and pricing schemes for the joint provisioning of radio access capacity and MEC services in a multi-tenant Radio Access Network (RAN).
