Spectrum strategy definition helping secure funding and spectrum auction award

An operator in Southern Europe was assessing its strategy before an upcoming auction and re-licensing of all major spectrum bands in the market. The strategy was to assess a number of areas, including sales/market development, technology choices and the subsequent potential different values of having different spectrum portfolios. Northstream was asked to make a full review of the potential scenarios from both a qualitative as well and quantitative point of view.
Northstream made several business cases, evaluating different spectrum portfolios. The valuations were used to formulate a strategy that was approved by the board as subsequently used in the auctions to secure spectrum.
