Radio Spectrum Experience At A Glance

Services and Capabilities

Radio spectrum is a key input into many economic activities, including mobile telephony, wireless broadband, television, defense, and public safety. As usable frequencies are a finite public resource, governments must intervene to manage allocation and pricing. In recent years, encouraged by NERA and other economic advisors, regulators have increasingly turned to market mechanisms to promote efficient spectrum use. Reforms such as auctions, trading, liberalization of use, and incentive pricing have helped to increase downstream competition and accelerate the growth of new wireless services, realizing potentially huge gains for national economies.

NERA's experts provide assistance on all spectrum management issues that require economic input, applying many years of hands-on experience working with companies and governments around the word on the most difficult challenges related to radio spectrum.
