Support for spectrum valuation

A mobile operator requested Northstream to support the spectrum valuation in preparation for an upcoming auction. Northstream expert developed a spectrum valuation model to estimate the impact of spectrum on the network cost (OPEX/CAPEX) covering various permutations of different scenarios such as future spectrum acquisition/license renewals in the coming decades, possible network sharing arrangements and technology migration rates etc. The model also addressed the difference in propagation and traffic capture capability of different frequency bands.

Northstream led a cross-function team of the client’s experts in preparing and collecting the necessary input, including spectrum portfolio valuation, market and traffic growth forecast etc for the spectrum valuation.
