Multi-MNO Predictive-QoS for Vehicular Applications

Prachi Mittal, Tim Leinmüller

Abstract

There are more and more ‘connected’ vehicles on the streets, and they run increasingly more safety critical applications. To meet the connectivity requirements of these vehicles, network providers need to not only ensure the quality of service (QoS) but also to predict any upcoming changes in the QoS and inform the vehicle(s) about it. This concept is called predictive-QoS (P-QoS) and is being heavily discussed in various organizations, e.g. 3GPP, 5GAA. To allow a seamless service to vehicles, some issues such as handling multiple mobile network operators (MNOs), while roaming for example, need to be addressed. For example, if prediction about QoS is available for multiple MNOs simultaneously for a specific area, this could be beneficial for the vehicle in selecting an MNO for further operation in specific scenarios, e.g. roaming, driving through an area where the current MNO is predictive to have poor QoS. In this paper, we introduce an entity, that takes the QoS prediction about multiple MNOs and makes decision about how to manage the connectivity in a vehicle, e.g. selecting a set of MNOs for further connectivity including a preference for each, making an “MNO usage timeplan” based on the QoS comparison etc.
