This tool is used to model an operator offering telecommunication services. The user can select to model a fixed or a mobile operator, change a number of parameters that can be generally grouped into: geographical, technical, economic, demand and create a scenario that calculates and present economic results such as NPV, IRR, and payback period.
Technoeconomic analysis is a way to quantitatively model business cases by combining economic and technical along with several constraints during cost and revenues calculations. Thus, the main objective of TE analysis is to identify economically viable implementation strategies for effective use of new technologies.
Technoeconomic analysis can be proved a valuable tool for operators, regulators, and telecom companies by supporting decisions related to investment project portfolios. An in depth TE analysis can reveal the most crucial and influencing factors leading to reduced investment risks and optimized return on investments.
In this scenario a fixed operator offering double play services (voice and data) through Fiber to the Curb (FTTC) network in a specific area is modeled.
In this scenario a 3G mobile operator offering voice and data services in an area further divided in urban and rural areas is modeled.
