What is an SMR Auction?

The most commonly used multiple-round format for spectrum awards, it was pioneered by the United States FCC in the 1990s. In each round, bidders submit bids for individual products (lots) and may shift their demand across products from round-to-round. This format is ideally suited to auctions where each product is differentiated from the other products, and therefore the value for each product will be different to an individual bidder. For example, in a spectrum auction, a bidder will value a spectrum block in New York City differently than a spectrum block in Orlando. This contrasts with a Clock Auction, where each product has the same value to an individual bidder. For example, the 1810 MHz band in New York City is valued the same as the 1815 MHz band in New York City.
