Bespoke research

| Samantha Nye

Does your organisation need specifically researched information about a spectrum-related issue? PolicyTracker has unique experience of spectrum policy and management issues worldwide and our consulting arm can provide research tailored to meet your requirements.

Why spend hours finding and decoding obscure documents when our researchers may have read them already? Why waste time seeking data for cross-country comparisons when we may have it to hand? PolicyTracker's research services can save you time and money. We are rigorous and impartial with skills based on decades of experience in analysing the sector. We offer a range of services to meet the needs of your organisation:
  • Bespoke research for clients who commission a private report on spectrum or wireless network related issues crucial to their business.
  • Non-confidential reports such as white papers which the client(s) can distribute to interested parties and make available to PolicyTracker subscribers.

From big questions to small...we can help

Your brief may be a simple one and the end report just be a couple of pages, or it could be more complex requiring a much longer document: research needs come in all shapes and sizes and we are happy to address them all. Our recent research reports have covered the following topics:

Wireless spectrum evolution

Our global clients for customised research include: mobile network operators, regulatory authorities, equipment vendors, vertical players such as automotive manufacturers, banks and investors.
