Next-generation mobile connectivity services includea large number of devices distributed across vast geographicalareas. Mobile network operators will need to collaborate tofulfill service requirements at scale. Existing approaches to multioperator services assume already-established collaborations tofulfill customer service demand with specific quality of service(QoS). In this paper, we propose an agent-based architecture,where establishment of collaboration for a given connectivityservice is done proactively, given predictions about future servicedemand. We build a simulation environment and evaluate ourapproach with a number of scenarios and in context of areal-world use case, and compare it with existing collaborationapproaches. Results show that by learning how to adapt theircollaboration strategy, operators can fulfill a greater part of theservice requirements than by providing the service independently,or through pre-established, intangible service level agreements.
