Network sharing JV benchmark 2015

Network sharing benchmarkPrevious years’ benchmarks showed that network sharing JVs – through focus and new operation models – have established cost and productivity levels which few mobile operators can match within their own network departments. JVs’ network quality is also higher – in spite of higher network load.

To improve further, network sharing JVs therefore need to compare against other JVs

tefficient’s third consecutive benchmark for network sharing JVs has been improved further based on the input from JVs participating in 2013 and 2014:

  • Site type distribution (tower, rooftop, other) will be taken into account in key OPEX and CAPEX KPIs
  • Site ownership distribution will be taken into account in key OPEX and CAPEX KPIs
  • Number of supported frequency bands will be added to examine the effect on OPEX and CAPEX
  • Breakdown of data quality KPIs into 3G and 4G separatelyNetwork sharing JV benchmark 2015 KPI list2

In total, there will be 159 KPIs covering 17 functions of a JV.

The table shows the distribution between revenue, OPEX, CAPEX, productivity, performance, traffic & load and quality KPIs.

Time schedule:

  • 27 March  Deadline to say yes to participation
  • 22 May  Deadline for last revision of input data
