DotEcon awarded contract to implement UK 2.3GHz and 3.4GHz spectrum auction

Ofcom has appointed DotEcon to provide the software for running an auction for the award of spectrum licences in the 2.3GHz and 3.4GHz bands, which is planned for the latter part of the 2015/16 financial year. Ofcom will use a variant of the Simultaneous Multi-Round Ascending (SMRA) auction format with modifications aimed at mitigating the risk of excessively fragmented outcomes, as set out in its recent statement on the Public Sector Spectrum Release (PSSR) published on 26 May 2015. The auction will be implemented using DotEcon’s WebBidder platform. 

DotEcon is also advising Ofcom on auction design issues for this award.
