Spectrum strategy, evaluation and business case support
Europe is going through re-farming and re-allocation of cellular spectrum as 2G licenses expire, also new mobile broadband spectrum is being issued in digital dividend and higher spectrum bands. A fixed/mobile operator on mainland Europe asked Northstream to support in the preparations for a mobile spectrum auction. Northstream provided support in re-validating the business opportunity (business case) and provided market specific input on various technology and business trends in the mobile and fixed industry (traffic growth, impact of device evolution, Wi-Fi/LTE technology, voice service evolution, etc).
The project developed a long term (10+ years) mobile-fixed network vision for the client, where the business strategy as well as the success criteria were defined and backed by a financial case allowing detailed spectrum valuation.
