Principles of Telecoms Regulation
This four day course is aimed at regulatory executives and managers working within the telecoms industry (with an operator or with a regulatory agency). The course delivers an comprehensive overview of the telecoms regulatory function, including training on all main aspects of telecoms regulation:
- History of telecoms networks and the motivation for regulation
- Putting regulation in the context with competition laws
- Overview and application of different cost modelling approaches
- Spectrum management
- Accounting separation and functional separation
- Numbering, Next Generation Networks and Broadband
The modular nature of this course allows for shifting the emphasis on topics which have specific relevance to a client’s situation; e.g. the cost modelling case studies can be replaced by case studies with spectrum valuation focus.
