CAMPBELL, Calif., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- After years of coordination and development, commercial CBRS services are coming to market. Some of the most serious players in the market plan to buy Priority Access Licenses in the upcoming FCC auction, and because the bidding competition will put private enterprises in competition with communication service providers, the outcomes are likely to differ widely for each county. In a special new report, Mobile Experts estimates the likely bidding value for PAL licenses for multiple business models. Anyone bidding in the upcoming PAL auction needs to have these numbers as a reference point.
"Valuing spectrum is more of an art than a science, but there is a logical framework to assess qualitative valuation. Market competition and timing both play a part. The value of spectrum has always been fundamentally tied to how much value that an operator can derive from deploying that spectrum in a network. In this report, we compare the operator's valuation to the likely bidding value of new entrants such as cable companies and industrial enterprises." commented Principal Analyst Kyung Mun.
The potential factors considered in the report include:
- Quality of Spectrum (bandwidth, frequency band, license term, and duration)
- Added value from deployment (new business or meeting existing traffic demand)
- Strategic asset (competitive barrier to entry, resale value)
- Supply-side alternatives (spectrum pipeline, availability of technology substitute)
- Timing and competitive landscape
- Regulatory risk (uncertainty, favorability of rules)
- Ecosystem maturity (availability of product solutions)
"PAL licensing terms are based on county-size areas," Principal Analyst Kyung Mun reported. "We used our framework as a filter to understand the qualitative assessment of potential value for the CBRS spectrum against the various business use cases, then proposed PAL spectrum cost estimates by looking at demand for PAL licenses by county."
Can the multi-faceted use cases envision by the CBRS ecosystem be realized? How will CBRS spectrum cost influence the realization of commercial services for 3.5GHz bands?
