Government and regulators

  • Government and regulatory needs are changing as the connectivity landscape evolves and the demands of citizens, business and society ramp up
  • Technology advances, such as the transition to 5G, present a whole new set of regulatory challenges
  • Governments and regulators need expert knowledge that is both independent and current, to help them make quick, fair and effective decisions

What we do

  • Advice on spectrum policy developments and support on spectrum management
  • Analysis of spectrum requirements and technology mapping
  • Analysis and modelling to estimate costs to meet coverage obligations

Why we are different

  • We offer evidence-based independent advice to help governments and regulators navigate these challenges
  • We use our expertise to assess the benefits of different technology choices
  • Our extensive team of experts bring a wealth of expertise, knowledge and experience in wireless technologies

We provide expert, impartial and up-to-date spectrum and regulatory advice for governments and regulators. Bringing a clear understanding of the current challenges, as well as the wireless landscape, we help you make decisions quickly, fairly and effectively.

The transition to 5G, changing spectrum needs and end user expectations are all challenges we couldn’t have predicted a few years ago, and demonstrate how ever-changing the wireless landscape is. Our fully impartial experts are up-to-date on all these new challenges and are ready to help you navigate these challenges and assess the benefits of different technology choices. We are technology agnostic with no affiliation to any vendor, and utterly committed to matching the right solution with your needs.

We can provide advice on all spectrum and wireless regulatory challenges, from spectrum requirements analysis and technology mapping, to estimating costs to meet coverage obligations and carrying out spectrum valuation and due diligence analysis.

What we offer

  • Advice on spectrum policy developments and support of spectrum management: From solving issues with conflict of interest in formulating policy, to allocating spectrum for different services such as mobile and satellite, our team understand the challenges government policymakers and regulators face. We use our expertise and first-hand experience in international level negotiations to provide you with the insights to help you make the right choices during spectrum negotiations and progressive policymaking.
  • Analysis of spectrum requirements and technology mapping: From repurposing spectrum for spectrally efficient technologies, to spectrum sharing, knowing how best to deal with increasing demand from spectrum users is never straightforward. Our team have extensive experience in working with policymakers to develop evidence-based and justifiable solutions for these challenges.
  • Analysis and modelling to estimate costs to meet coverage obligations: For services such as mobile, finding spectrum is only a part of the solution. You are then faced with decisions on coverage and the trade-off between the costs of site requirements, benefits to consumers and the contribution to the economy. Our team provide a robust cost benefit analysis, helping you place sensible and realistic conditions such as coverage obligations on licences
  • Carrying out co-existence, spectrum sharing and interference analysis: Our team have a deep understanding of the technologies involved in wireless services, and their evolution. This makes us uniquely positioned to provide our clients with analysis and impartial advice on the sustainability of spectrum bands or technologies and how these co-exist. Our deep knowledge and forward thinking approach means we can also advise on new technologies that may impact policy making.
