This Dagstuhl Seminar on “Telecommunication Economics” was organized to discuss and develop partially a strategic research outline among key people in order to enhance the competence in the field of telecommunication economics and respective network management tasks for integrated Internet and telecommunication networks. The view on respective guidelines and recommendations to relevant players (end-users, enterprises, operators, regulators, policy makers, and content providers), focusing on the provision of new converged wireless services and content delivery networks to people and enterprises determined an aspect of relevance.

The main objective was to allow business partnering to drive networking services and their sustainable provisioning for consumers and enterprises alike. This includes in more specific detail the following four objectives:

  • The support of engineering leadership gained in mobile, broadband, digital TV, and wire-line communications, and selected media fields, by new sustainable business models in a fully deregulated and diversified demand framework.
  • The study and identification of business opportunities throughout the value chain, especially for enterprises, content, and specialized services.
  • The contribution to a strategy relative to socio-economic needs by increasing the motivation for deployment of cost effective and flexible solutions using networks and content.
  • The provisioning of guidelines and recommendations for utilizing different types of technologies and quantify necessary actions. These results will potentially supply regulators and standardization bodies with analysis and guidelines for creating conditions for fast growing competitive mobile, broadband, and content markets while speeding up business.

Thus, in a nutshell, the “Telecommunications Economics” Seminar shall help researchers to guide the development of (a) applicable and usable prototypes and (b) services from the socio-economic and business perspectives, and not put them in the position of first waiting for customers to adopt their technologies.
