We consider a Mobile Network Operator (MNO) who shares dynamically his limited resource spectrum with a Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) lacking the infrastructure. We start by introducing at each time period a three-level game: in the first step the MNO defines the wholesale access charge that the MVNO pays per ...

Yield management has been successfully applied in the context of airline companies. However, so far, application to telecommunication industry have been scarce. Using Yield management principles, this paper investigates the new problem of maximizing revenue of telecommunications operator by setting prices on voice services. This pricing is based on available ...

In this article, we deal with the resolution of a dynamic game of interconnection between mobile network operators (MNOs) sharing their scarce resources and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) lacking the infrastructure but trying to bargain to send as much traffic as possible on the MNOs' networks. Besides consumers' perception ...

We propose a new approach to optimize the deployment and the sampling rates of network monitoring tools, such as Netflow, on a large IP network. It reduces to solving a stochastic sequence of Second Order Cone Programs. We validate our approach with experiments relying on real data from a commercial ...

Network operators are merging their services, such as fixed or wireless telephony, internet or television, into single offers, called bundles. It is essential to understand consumers' preferences to define the most profitable bundles, with their associated prices, especially in the fierce competitive current market. We start by defining a random ...

Radio spectrum allocation is essential to the provision of mobile communication services. The spectrum is a finite resource and can accomodate a limited number of simultaneous users at one time. Due to this scarcity, allocating traditional mobile licenses to new mobile operators is unrealizable and new entrants should bargain access ...

Yield management techniques have been used by companies in various competitive industrial contexts in order to keep a high level of revenue. With the opening of the telecommunications markets, operators are looking for ways of including competition in their decision process. By analyzing the customers' preferences, the market can be ...

We consider the problem of determining a set of optimal tariffs for an agent in the network, who owns a subset of all the arcs, and who receives revenue by setting the tariffs on the arcs he owns. Multiple rational clients are active in the network, who route their demands ...

We consider a Stackelberg pricing problem in directed networks. Tariffs have to be defined by an operator, the leader, for a subset of the arcs, the tariff arcs. Clients, the followers, choose paths to route their demand through the network selfishly and independently of each other, on the basis of ...
