Abstract

This paper examines the international, interorganizational
collaboration processes for the development of
cognitive radio, which will be at the basis of potentially profound
changes in the telecommunications value network, as well as its
functional architecture, cost and value structure and the eventual
value proposition of any services deployed in such a value
network. The paper will analyze the transition in
telecommunications from linear standardization taking place
mainly in the domain of formal Standardization Organizations,
to a highly complex and multi-layered process simultaneously
involving formal organizations, informal bodies and industrial
consortia. Subsequently, the paper discusses the development of
a Cognitive Pilot Channel to show how innovation in
telecommunications markets is determined by this complex
interplay. It also explores how the collaborative process between
research, regulation and standardization of a Cognitive Pilot
Channel in different standardization platforms (viz. IEEE
SCC41 and ETSI TC RRS) might influence the eventual
deployment of such a cognitive radio technology and networks
and services enabled by it, as well as the business models for it.
For doing this, an exploratory business model scorecard analysis
is performed on some of the different revenue sharing models
coming out of diverging design choices of the CPC.
