Project Information
What is this Project about?

Telecommunication companies face a whole variety of risks. Developing methodologies to address these risks is of fundamental importance. Because the risks are so wide ranging the study chose to start by focusing on the management of risks associated with bandwidth and wholesale services and by looking at the issue of bandwidth pricing. Nevertheless, the study will include a general overview of the different sources of risk and a scenario analysis.

What are the main objectives of this Project?

  • Establish a state of the art on the subject of risk management in general and focus on market risk in core network resources investments, in particular;
  • Evaluate risk measurement methodologies based on the use of financial tools such as the Value-at-Risk, for example;
  • The study also plans to make proposals for further studies/a full project.

What are the key results for this Project?

The key results of the study will include a solid framework to address the type of risks telecom actors face and to determine how they can be quantified and hedged. This framework can be thought as the very first step towards a standardisation of risk measures.

What relationship exists to other organisations or bodies?

There is no similar activity identified so far with which liaison or other forms of relationship would be necessary.
