Telecommunications markets are undergoing radical changes. Terms like mobile Internet, UMTS, LTE, NGN, NGA, Vectoring, e- and m-Commerce or Pay-TV are now part of our daily life. The boundaries between telecommunications, broadcasting and information technology are becoming increasingly blurred. Moreover, corporate mergers and the globalisation of technologies and markets are raising new questions for public policy agencies and regulatory authorities. This is where WIK comes in.
We get into developments of communication- and infrastructure-based markets, we analyze the political and economic framework, we analyze the market, and we develop models – thus providing reliable bases for decison to government authorities, ministries, organizations and businesses. We provide answers to the question of how competition can be encouraged in the infrastructure areas of the economy and how information society can be advanced.
Our research also forms the basis of our consulting activities. WIK analyses market structures, corporate strategies and competitive developments, identifies technological and social trends – testing their feasibility and innovative potential. This means, we play a part in such vital matters as the allocation of UMTS and LTE licenses, the setting of interconnection tariffs and the development of price regulation models.
