Broadband and NGNs: Incyte in the van

Regulation in every country needs to address the broadband and NGN challenges. These are not the same old narrowband issues with different labels. Incyte is now in the forefront of work in this field and is involved in many vanguard projects to build capacity and understanding. The projects we have completed or are now wrapping up include:

  • preparation of a major paper on Open Access to
        broadband for the ITU
  • presentation of Open Access research and insights at
        the ITU's Global Symposium for Regulators (GSR11)
        in Colombia in September (see link)
  • preparation of a chapter on broadband pricing in a
        regulatory context for a forthcoming ITU publication
        on broadband strategies
  • development of IP and NGN and transitional cost
        models for various clients
  • development of National Broadband Policies and
        related strategic work plans including for Fiji,
        where the new policy was launched by the Prime
        Minister on 13 October
  • as a partner with Plum Consulting, assessment of
        policy and regulation for OFTA in Hong Kong against
        the imperatives of an NGN environment
  • analysis of various regulatory approaches to ensure
        non-discriminatory access to NGA services and their
        impact on shareholder value for a Middle Eastern
        investment fund
  • support on a negotiation strategy on the
        development of a regulatory framework affecting the
        next investment cycle on NGN and NGA for a Middle
        Eastern operator

    Incyte Consulting, along with its associated firms Great Village and ICT Lawyers, has been awarded a major contract to develop the regulatory framework in Liberia to support the distribution of international capacity on the ACE submarine cable that will land in Monrovia in 2012.

    Here the Project manager, David Rogerson, signs the contract with Angelique Weeks, Chair of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority.

    More about ACE
    The ACE (Africa Coast to Europe) submarine communications cable is a planned cable system along the west coast of Africa between France and South Africa, planned by ACE consortium which was founded on June 5, 2010.

    In its planned configuration, the 17,000 km-long fiber optic cable stretching from France to South Africa will be operational in the first half of 2012. It will connect 23 countries, either directly for coastal countries or indirectly through terrestrial links for landlocked countries, like Mali and Niger.

    This will be the first international submarine cable to land in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, The Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Mauritania, Sao Tome and Principe and Sierra Leone..
