What is Neutral Host (NH)?
Traditionally, telecom carriers have been building their infrastructure on their own and independently. Recently a new business model has emerged where IT-specialized companies build part of the infrastructure (for example, communication towers, antennas, base stations, etc.) and share it to multiple telecom carriers. The sharing scheme would contribute to reduce the cost of infrastructure buildout and making the service deployment time shorter. Such business model of sharing the infrastructure is called neutral host.
Sharing a part of infrastructure by multiple service providers is already implemented in many industries. A typical example is data center. We believe infrastructure sharing is going to be more and more common and thus business opportunities do exist in neutral host.
