Purpose and goal

The project aim was to define a functioning ecosystem for indoor mobile communication coverage for newly built energy-efficient residential houses with excellent thermal isolation and tight budget constraints. Based on the analysis of relevant stakeholders, their requirements, technical solutions and existing business models, the project specified three ecosystems mapped into pilot cases.

Results and expected effects

The definition of the three pilot cases within the project for testing the ecosystems in relevant environment included the identification of major stakeholders, applicable technical solutions and business model components as well as the list of advantages and challenges of each case. The stress test of the defined ecosystems in relevant environment in the next phase of the project will open for commercial exploitation of the winning system or systems.

Approach and implementation

The project work has been implemented through a series of workshops, meetings and off-line communications, and reviewed state-of-the-art and emerging technical solutions available for indoor coverage, analyzed applicable ecosystems based on developments in Sweden and other countries, mapped stakeholder interests and carried out techno-economics analysis of the promising technical solutions. The constellation of partners increased through our work during the project from 5 to 14 participating in the implementation of the next pilot phase of the project.
