Abstract
This paper will describe roles and market actors enabling new forms of co-operation and competition using Ambient Networks technology and concepts. According to the Ambient Networks vision “any” user will be able to connect to “any” network, which will challenge traditional “one operator – one subscriber” solutions. Ambient Networks will stimulate an unbundled value network but will also facilitate the dynamic and flexible way of doing business in an environment with many access and service providers. The roles described in more detail in this paper are the Local Access Provider, Access Aggregator, Access Broker, Trusted Third Party, ClearingHouse, Compensation Service Provider and Service Aggregator.
