Plum reviewed the methods used for spectrum estimation historically and recommends a methodology for a GSMA assessment of spectrum demand as an input paper into the WRC15 preparatory work. The report considered: Traffic demand forecasting out to 2025 Economic influences on long term demand An appropriate methodology for spectrum forecasting. Plum also illustrated how spectrum demand calculations[…]
This paper discusses the recent development of European level policies regarding wireless broadband services, and in particular those adopted by the European Union. We address three main policy strands, namely broadband service provision in general, spectrum allocation and policies addressing competition issues in mobile markets. We find that the European Commission has successfully promulgated good[…]
Plum valued spectrum licences for 825-845 MHz and 870-890 MHz spectrum for the purposes of setting government expectations with regard to licence reissue prices. There were three elements to the study: A review of international evidence on the value of spectrum licences in the same or similar frequency bands as revealed in auctions and licence[…]
Plum carried out a valuation exercise for the Australian Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) to estimate prices for 15 year spectrum licences with a view to setting fees for licence renewal. Plum derived values based on modelling and benchmark analysis and assisted the Ministry is responding to operator comments. Summaries of[…]
Plum prepared a paper reviewing the spectrum valuation methodology proposed by advisors to the Indian regulator (TRAI). Issues were identified and alternative methodology proposed.
Plum and Aegis developed a comprehensive framework for spectrum utilisation fees for both spectrum awarded by auction (reserve) prices and other non-government spectrum directly assigned. The work included business case analysis and opportunity cost calculation for a variety of spectrum bands.
Phillipa Marks and Ken Pearson of Plum held a seminar with Olswang on spectrum policy
Plum and Aegis developed a generic methodology for estimating the value of spectrum and constructed a model that could be applied to a variety of frequency bands ranging between 10 MHz and 100 GHz. The purpose of the model is to investigate how provision of spectrum value information may inform and stimulate trading in spectrum[…]
Plum led a large study to develop likely scenarios for the state of the UK entertainment sector in 2028. The scenarios were then used to assess the likely long-term future demand for spectrum from the UK entertainment sector.
