The service portfolio offered by our company spans to several fields from regulatory economics to spectrum related issues. Our services are focused on providers, regulators, telecommunications companies, governments and public bodies in order to address their actual needs. More specifically, the services we offer are:
- Business Strategies
- Consulting Services for PPP projects
- Network design and Architectures
- Spectrum issues
- Specialized tool
Our executives have extensive experience in providing consulting services to both providers and regulatory authorities. It is worth noting that the requirement for regulation on competition and pricing the result of the various recommendations introduced by the European Union.
We have deep knowledge in the implementation of cost accounting methodologies (bottom-up, hybrid bottom-up and top-down, long run incremental cost) and forecasting techniques. We also have the ability to perform benchmarking studies in order to monitor and comparatively evaluate the issues under consideration in several countries.
INCITES is developing tools incorporating market elements and the necessary costs of the various services and components in order to provide guidelines for the appropriate price control and termination rates identification. On the other hand, our team can assist providers in developing their strategy against the decisions of regulatory authorities. close
In a highly competitive environment such that of telecommunications and in conjunction with the rapid changes of technology, enterprises are asked to make important decisions regarding their investments and future strategy.
With our deep knowledge on competition issues, market analysis, new technologies, we can support enterprises in the analysis and valuation of the available options and consequently in the conduction of their business strategy by developing appropriate technology roadmaps and reliable techno-economic models.
We are also ready to meet the challenges of uncertainty conditions by modeling deep uncertainty, risk and externalities effects in telecommunications. In this way, enterprises can more easily assess their options under different future scenarios and predict the “unpredictable”. close
INCITES supports private companies participating in Public Private Partnership (PPP) bids. Our team is well experienced in preparing bid documents. Towards this direction, specialized financial models describing both the construction and operational phases are developed. The derived financial indices are used to investigate the viability of such projects. close
The need for precise evaluation of telecommunications networks economics leads to the requirement for accurate design. This is further enhanced by the increased complexity and variety of alternative architectures for telecommunications networks.
Our senior members have a great experience in network design due to their participation in a large number of research and development projects in the fields of optical backbone and access networks, wireless and next generation networks. They have the skills to perform each time the optimal design by making at the same time the necessary assumptions without affecting the accuracy of the obtained results.
Furthermore, the executives are familiar on telecommunications research topics resulting in easier implementation of, not commercial yet, "exotic" technologies and better understanding of their implications. close
The evolution of wireless technologies has led to increased demand for wireless services. However, the available spectrum is not infinite but a very scarce resource that requires careful management and efficient use. This is further enhanced by the three main EU goals; harmonisation, efficiency, availability; incorporated in both Europe 2020 initiative and the Digital Agenda for Europe.
The emergence of new technologies and the provision of new services result in the need for both pricing and re-allocation of spectrum.
INCITES offers consulting services in both directions for providers and regulators. It is capable of supporting providers in the preparation and participation in spectrum allocation auctions. On the other hand, our staff has long experience in studying mechanisms of spectrum pricing and is therefore able to develop detailed cost models for calculating fees of different technologies. Finally, our company can support consultation and drafting laws on spectrum fees. close
A techno-economic (TE) tool has been developed for the modelling and the evaluation of various investment cases and scenarios. It is an Excel spread sheet based ad-inn implementing the methodology that was developed by a series of projects in the field of techno-economic evaluation of telecom networks and services. Previous versions of the tool have been used in several studies among telecom providers and academic institutes across Europe.
It consists of several modules enabling dimensioning of different network architectures. A constantly updated database incorporating an extensive list of network components is the heart of the TE tool. Indicative outputs of the tool are: annual and cumulative cash flows, NPV, IRR, EBITA, payback period along with a sensitivity analysis module. close
