The talk summarizes the main challenges and opportunities of
infrastructure sharing in present and future cellular networks. We begin
by assessing, through real-world demand and deployment traces, how
sharing can improve the efficiency of present-day networks, especially
in rural areas. We then move to next-generation networks, exploring the
relationship (and the potential conflict) between sharing and
competition regulations. Finally, we study the relationship between
traditional and virtual operators sharing the same SDN-based,
virtualized core network.
