As the international telecoms environment grows more complex, it gets harder to exploit the growing range of technological opportunities. Regulators and operators in emerging markets sometimes lack the capacity or experience to engage fully with the latest-generation networks and services which are critical for promoting economic and social benefit. This can also present opportunities. By leapfrogging legacy deployments, emerging markets can bypass the transitional complexities faced by countries with more mature infrastructure.
Cenerva has extensive experience of global regulatory best practice. We draw on our expertise to help regulators in emerging markets develop frameworks and policies to make technology work in their local environment, and to help operators engage with regulation to defend and grow market share. We have delivered consultancy work throughout Africa, Asia, Oceania, Central America and the Caribbean. Examples include:
Developing policies for universal broadband provision
Designing network interconnection frameworks
Conducting spectrum auctions.
In addition to our project work, we provide on-demand access to our experts by phone, email or video link, through the Cenerva Helpdesk Service, to help answer technical queries and extend the regulatory depth and breadth of clients with limited resources.
