Maputo Bay Wireless Network Cost Analysis

Henriques M. Marcelino and Hua-Shen Zeng

Abstract—The objective of this paper is to analyze the cost of building wireless networks in the context of Network Engineering (NE). Cost analysis is important in planning and design phases in network lifecycles, especially for developing countries. The Techno-Economic Analysis presented in this paper is based on the project for planning and designing new wireless network around Maputo Bay. Based on techno-economic evaluation measures, such as Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR), in Maputo Bay Wireless Network (MBW Net) is projected financial assumption and two categories of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operating Expenditure (OPEX) of economic model are wide discussed.

Index Terms—CAPEX, internal rate of return, OPEX, net present value.
