Spectrum Management

Spectrum Management Policy

Spectrum management policy development can best be summarised by three simple questions:

  • Why: what's the aim, why are we managing the spectrum, what do we hope to achieve?
  • What: the approaches to meet the aims and desired outcomes from laissez faire to price and market involvement.
  • When: the lifecycles from initial idea for policy through proving to re-farming and re-allocation.

In the world's most progressive regulators, the past fifty years has seen huge change: from a single monopolistic telecommunications operator to a liberalised competitive market of telecoms provision and from a sector financially starved to one of great agility with innovation and new products.

All of the world's regulators have embraced organisational development and centre-stage in this is spectrum policy. The world's regulators are all at varying stages of development: some lead, some follow and all expect great contribution to welfare of citizens and economies.

InterConnect Communications has aided many of the world's regulators to answer these three questions. Whilst regulators have themselves excellent staff, most recognise the value of using independent consulting firms such as InterConnect because their consultants bring deep economic, engineering and legal understanding married with broad world-class experience to augment the regulator's own skills.
