The advent of convergence has posed serious challenges to the service specific licensing regimes calling for a paradigm shift in approach. Regulators worldwide have adopted a variety of approaches to align their licensing regimes to embrace the changing landscape of communications.
Such migration has posed stiff challenges for the regulators as well as the industry, especially in the areas of creating a level playing field amongst existing operators and between existing operators and new entrants. These processes have impact on a range of regulatory issues including license fees, roll out obligations, interconnection, spectrum policy, numbering to name a few.
This training workshop aims to meet the following objectives:
- Develop an understanding of the various models of converged / unified licensing in place;
- Disseminate international best practices in this regard;
- Build skills in carrying out migration through working group exercise;
- Gain knowledge of regulators and industry experiences (case studies).
