Developing products, services and vertical applications for the future digitized society in the 6G era requires a multidisciplinary approach and a re-imagining of how we create, deliver and consume network resources, data and services. This development will change the traditional business models and ecosystem roles, as well as open the market for new stakeholders like micro-operators, cloud operators and resource brokers. Paper discusses unprecedented opportunities of enabling and stimulating multiple stakeholders to have a more active participation in the future 6G ecosystem via platform-based ecosystemic business models. The research extends the product platform and service modularity concepts beyond connectivity innovations towards multisided transactional ecosystem platforms.
