Spectrum Trading Systems
Cantor Spectrum & Tower Exchange is an example of an outsourced license data base which provides an open or closed transparent forum for both primary (auction) and secondary (post-auction) market spectrum transactions in both public and private marketplaces.
- Sellers/Lessees can review FCC licensee information obtained by the exchange and see a snapshot in real-time.
- Qualified licence sellers/lessors or public sector entities offer radio frequency spectrum and digital sub-channel capacity in a multi-dimensional format showing coverage area, population, frequency range, radio service rules, terms and conditions, channel, time slot, etc.
- Buyers/lessees search for specific assets (or receive electronic notification), and can easily evaluate and bid on them.
This type of system helps facilitate the critical matching function that liquid markets depend on.
