Spectrum Auctions - Data Sheet | Auction | Auction Service


Few, if any, organizations can match Computechʼs practical experience building and operating spectrum auction systems. In fact, our reputation for developing automated auction systems is unmatched among academicians and consultants alike, as only Computech-built and operated systems have returned $100+ billion in revenue to national regulators since 1994. AN IT FIRM WITH GLOBAL SPECTRUM AUCTION EXPERIENCE For more than 16 years, we have designed and delivered sophisticated auction systems that encourage competitive bidding while minimizing risk and human error.

Since 1994, we have created three generations of Simultaneous Multiple Round (SMR) systems (ascending and descending), developed two Package Auction systems, a Combinatorial Clock with final proxy round auction system, a Sealed-Bid auction system, and a two-sided Spectrum Exchange system. In 2009, leveraging our 16+ years of auction system development experience, we built our own auction platform, known as CAP. The bidding platform employs a single Internet-based control module to manage the entire spectrum auction process.

Our platform uses a scalable, modular system design, allowing full flexibility in customizing the supported auction designs. CAP provides the foundation for future system expansion, ensuring Computechʼs ability to deliver a fully-featured system while maintaining a faster time-to-market.
