terrestrial and satellite,
is the field in which SNI first became active. Its particularly broad
competence here extends to:
- regulatory, strategic
and business consultancy
- investor support
services, notably project appraisal and promotion of investment
- provision of
transmission capacity, infrastructure services and data/internet solutions.
SNI has for instance
analysed both niche and mainstream market structures and provided key
support in their reform and restructuring. It has become a successful
marketeer, moving from a springboard in the satellite capacity market
to infrastructure and user services.
On the regulatory
side, SNI has conducted fundamental analysis on EU and international
telecommunications law and policy and advised on a wide range of subjects
at this level. SNI has also drafted and advised on general and specific
national legal regimes for telecommunications, including as to licensing
and market access, interconnection, equipment, numbering allocation
and radio spectrum management and pricing.
SNI closely monitors
relevant developments within European and international organizations
and in the global marketplace, in particular as to the development of
the internet, e-commerce and new enabling communication technologies.
applications and policy constitute
the second pillar of SNIís competence. A number of SNIís senior consultants
have long experience in space projects and their legal/managerial mechanisms
at government, agency, industrial and international level. SNI possesses,
as in telecommunications, extensive archives on this field from launch
and satellite systems to the International Space Station and future
systems. One of SNIís founders has published the leading work on the
European space sector; another is one of Europeís telecommunications
satellite pioneers. SNI actively promotes European space initiatives.
energy and transport systems,
including air traffic
management, form the third pillar of SNI competence, which benefits
in terms of methods and experience from synergy with the first two.
The expertise available to SNI here was built up in environmental and
energy consultancy projects at national level and in transport-related
projects involving bodies such as the European Commission and Eurocontrol.
Projects today are increasingly regional or inter-regional in scope,
in light of developments such as the establishment of Trans-European
Networks. As in other fields, SNIís consultants often cooperate closely
with other organizations and firms on projects.
