NERA Economic Consulting served as a knowledge partner for Forum Global's third annual Middle East & North Africa Spectrum Management Conference, held in Dubai on 24-25 January 2017. In this role, NERA advised on the agenda for the event and helped to identify expert speakers on spectrum management issues across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
NERA Associate Director Dr. Soren Tang Sorensen chaired and moderated a session on best practices in setting pricing and licensing conditions. Many MENA countries are in the process of awarding spectrum for 4G and starting the planning process for releasing bands that may be used for 5G. The award of these bands will play a key role in supporting the rollout of next-generation services and shaping the competitive environment for mobile. As part of the program, Dr. Sorensen presented the topic, "How Best Practice in Spectrum Pricing Can Enable 4G and 5G Deployment."
