Cost model for mobile networks
The German Regulatory Authority Bundesnetzagentur has asked WIK-Consult to develop a cost model for mobile networks. It is a bottom-up model with which it will be possible to determine the cost of terminating calls on a mobile network. On the basis of the recommendation of the European Commission regarding the determination of termination charges, the model will implement a new cost standard (pure LRIC) besides the one of LRIC+ which also covers a share of common cost.
The main features of the model were presented to the interested public during an information event in the Bundenetzagentur on 4 November 2011. The reference document describing the modelling approach as well as the slides used during the information event are available for download from the webpage of the Bundesnetzagentur.
All documents are only available in German language.
