The economic and societal potential of emerging next-generation networks (6G and beyond) is vastly greater than what has been realized so far, and major investments are being made worldwide to develop the corresponding science and technology. The Future Networking paradigm, the proliferation of emerging networks and architectures, wireless access technologies and multi-homing smart devices are evolving towards a competitive environment, where users and devices have access to various resources, while their behaviors become strongly interdependent. In general, Network Economics refer and affect not only the existing and future network topologies, but also promote new disruptive technologies and/or network management and orchestration strategies that can offer efficiencies and deliver new revenues. The corresponding economic models will drive the deployment of enhanced networks and services in the future. Future network operation and logistics, including the emerging virtual networks and their deployment over joint physical infrastructures, are expected to treat and support heterogeneous QoS requirements of network traffic, which in turn calls for novel processes, algorithms, and architectures. As such the study of existing and new economic mechanisms within the context of Future Networks is gaining increasing attention recently. In parallel, the recent advances in artificial intelligence, operations research, and economics has joined forces to tackle problems involving in future networks market design. The design of strategic economic models, which have the potential of bridging the gap among the future networks heterogeneous entities’ competitive goals, is of paramount importance in order to converge to operational market designs.
