5.9 Functionality for network sharing

23.0603GPPGeneral Packet Radio Service (GPRS)Release 17Service descriptionStage 2TS

Network sharing allows multiple network operators to share a radio access network. In a shared network, an MS that supports network sharing selects one of the operators and indicates it to the network. This allows the network to provide services from the selected operator. For an MS that does not support network sharing, the network may select the network operator that provides the services.

The functionality needed to support network sharing is defined in TS 23.251 [83].
