Dimensioning and Profit Sharing in Hybrid LTE/DVB Systems to Offer Mobile TV Services

Abstract : Our aim in this work is to develop profit sharing strategies for coooperative 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Digital Video Broadcasting - Next Generation Handheld (DVB-NGH) systems offering mobile TV service. We first study the capacity of the hybrid system for offering such a service and derive the associated cost for each network. We then focus on the sharing of profit between LTE and DVB operators as well as TV channels providers, taking into account the subscription revenues as well as the infrastructure and operation costs. We consider two cases: one in which both LTE and DVB networks are managed by a single operator and one in which the operators are separate. In both cases, we derive closed-form expressions for each player profit share using coalition game concept Shapley value. We further obtain the players optimal strategies, at the Nash equilibrium, where each player tries to maximize its own profit.
