The MONEH Innovation Showcase chaired by James Body, Telet Research

The MONEH Innovation Showcase is aimed at fundamentally changing what it means to be a mobile network operator. James and the Telet Research team have been beavering away to implement a cloud based cellular core that supports Multi Operator Neutral Host (MONEH) operation. This means that any privately owned Radio Access Network with embedded Evolved Packet Core (EPC) will be able to accept inbound roaming traffic from other mobile network users. The demo will include production ready Acceleran radios with an embedded EPC from Quortus providing an LTE service, so members of the audience will have the opportunity to join the demo with their own mobiles! We’ll have voice and SMS services running live, and a host of other network and end user services. It will support inter-carrier signaling and a few other surprises. Programmable Telecoms is changing every aspect of our industry.

Some of the partners making this live demonstration possible include: Telet Research, Accelleran, Quortus, Simwood, Telestax, NG Voice, and Flowroute.

TADSummit, The MONEH Innovation Showcase chaired by James Body, Telet Research

  1. 1. Multi Operator Neutral Host Innovation Showcase James Body and MONeH Consortium
  2. 2. PNO Private Network Operator
  3. 3. LTE (& 5G) networks are SO MUCH better than WiFi! But how can a ‘non-operators’ deploy and manage LTE that real people can use?
  4. 4. My objective is to…... ...make setting up and using a Private LTE Network as easy as deploying a WiFi Access point…..
  5. 5. Drivers for Change Big problems are becoming less...
  6. 6. Software Based Networks The Demise of Proprietary Hardware Platforms Cloud based infrastructure offers ● Greatly reduced cost ● Shortened deployment times ● Massive scalability ● Rapid development/evolution AND Open Source - which *is* scalable, reliable and supportable!
  7. 7. Spectrum Spectrum used to be MAJOR Gating Factor for MNO entry ● Smart Shared Spectrum Management ○ LSA/DSA ○ Secondary use on non-interference basis ● Licence free operation (MuLTEFire) ● Operator Spectrum Leasing Cost/Availability of Spectrum directly linked to power levels/cell size
  8. 8. Licensed Shared Access (US) Dynamic Shared Access SAS - Spectrum Access System Cells report ● Location ● Operating Parameters ● What they can hear SAS issues Lease Like DHCP, but with blocks of spectrum rather than IP addresses
  9. 9. Spectrum - Detailed View ● DECT Guard Band (2 x 3.5 MHz) - 1800 MHz (Band 3) - Secured Today (UK/NL) ● Sub-licenced LTE 800 (2 x 30 MHz) - 800 MHz (Band 20) - Applied for secondary use on non-interference basis ● TDD Bands - due for imminent release - some if not all as Licenced Shared Access (LSA) or Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) ○ 2300 MHz (Band 40) - Release imminent ○ 3400 MHz (Band 42) - Release imminent in EU, Available in US ○ 3500 MHz (Band 43) - Release imminent in EU, Available in US ● Licence Free [MuLTEfire] (Band 46) - 5200 MHz (775 MHz - shared with WiFi) - Available today, but no support yet in User Equipments ● 700 MHz Band (Band 28) (2 x 30 MHz + 20 MHz SDL) - Release 2018
  10. 10. Identity and Authentication
  11. 11. The Subscriber Identity Module (or SIM) The SIM contains network-specific information used to authenticate and identify subscribers on the network. ● ICCID - integrated circuit card identifier ● IMSI - International Mobile Subscriber Identity ● Authentication Key([s] (Ki), ● Local Area Identity (LAI) ● Plus carrier-specific data such as the ● SMSC (Short Message Service Center) number, ● Service Provider Name (SPN), ● Service Dialing Numbers (SDN), ● Advice-Of-Charge parameters and ● Value Added Service (VAS) applications
  12. 12. Multi-IMSI SIMs Normally SIMs contain ONE IMSI and associated crypto key variables More sophisticated SIMs (such as those from Truphone®) contain multiple IMSIs (and possibly multiple sets of crypto keys) At any time only ONE IMSI is active Multiple user profiles (and phone numbers) can be mapped concurrently to the active IMSI
  13. 13. Further SIM Development Multi-IMSI/Multi-Crypto Key Variable SIMs allow authentication to be carried out by different Home Subscriber Servers (HSS) The signalling channel (always on and always free) can be used for independant comms between SIM and mobile network core SIM Socket - micro web browser on SIM Apps running on SIM independant of handset SIM based Blockchain!

  17. 17. Other Obstacles Commercial and Procedural Challenges
  18. 18. The Dangerous Demo..!
  19. 19. TAD Summit History The Challenge ● Following TAD Summit 2013 (Bangkok) it became apparent that in order to demo most of the TADS apps, some form of underlying network would be required ● ‘Bet you can’t do that!’ ● ‘Bet we CAN!’ Accomplishments ● 2014 (Istanbul) - First iteration - Truphone, Canonical, Telestax and Metaswitch ● 2015 (Lisbon) - added multiple network apps and demonstrated massive scalability/refactoring ● 2016 (Lisbon) - introduced RAN (using software defined radios
  20. 20. TAD Summit 2017 - Dangerous Demo The Objectives ● All existing components from previous Demos, PLUS: ● Add PRODUCTION READY 4G Radio Access Network (Accelleran) ● Add live IMS (SIP and DIAMETER) exchange with Public Mobile Networks ● Show full Multi Operator Neutral Host operation using audience phones as part of demo!
