Abstract

The next generation of mobile communications systems is expected to offer new business opportunities to existing and new market players. A market-based
middleware framework has been recently proposed whereby service providers, independent of network operators, are able to tender online service contracts to
network operators in a dynamic and competitive manner. This facilitates a seamless service provision over disparate networks in a consumer-centric manner. Service providers select network bearers according to the network operators' ability to meet the QoS target, which in turn is influenced, among other things, by user's price and quality requirements. The benefits of this proposal are the complementarity of numerous network resources, the decoupling of services and networks in a self-organising distributed environment, and increased competition to consumers’ advantage
