Technical survey of license regulations for mobile operators.

Northstream was asked to perform a survey by a Middle Eastern operator who faced increased levels of service requirements by the regulator in their 2G and 3G networks. In preparations for a hearing with the regulators, the mobile operator required a comprehensive understanding of international practices for spectrum license holders.

Northstream supported the mobile operator in performing a survey of several western countries with the objective to identify how regulations vary for spectrum license holders between nations. Interviews were conducted with regulatory bodies of all the selected nations and documentation was put together to display differences, similarities, and trends between the selected nations.

As a result of the project, Northstream produced material that put the new service requirements in an international perspective and helped the argumentation of the operator.
