Developing/Operating Auctions

Trade for NOK 877,983,276

In close cooperation with Copenhagen Economics, Partisia has been awarded framework agreements with both the Swedish and the Norwegian Telecommunication Authorities on designing, developing and operating spectrum auctions.
Spectrum auctions is a highly specialized field on designing advanced auctions used to allocate user rights to certain frequency bands. The state is the seller and since the licenses are prerequisite for a teleoperator, the auction basically forms the entire telecom industry. For that reason, these auctions are also referred to as high stake auctions.
As an example, Partisia’s High Stake Auction tailored for the Norwegian 1800 MHz Spectrum Auction has been used to trade spectrum rights for a total of NOK 877.983.276 over the course of 7 days and 83 bidding rounds in December 2015.
