Techno-economic Analysis of Broadband Networks

Overview
Value analysis studies are an integral part of every strategic marketing and business plan related with new products and services in the ICT industry. They are commonly used to compare important parameters such as capital and operational expenditures (CapEx, OpEx), life-cycle costs, revenue streams, discounted cash flows, and techno-economic evaluation measures such as the net present value (NPV) and the internal rate of return (IRR).
Such studies offer a measurable output and can be used to support the decision making process related with the business or the market that a company should be in, the potential of certain technology solutions, or, the future of internal R&D projects, etc. In this course the methodologies and tools for technology/product planning and value analysis based on techno-economic evaluation measures will be described and analyzed.
Each session is followed by a series of real life and project based case studies for participants to implement value analysis as part of a new ICT product business plan.:
