ICS TELECOM EV PROVIDES THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE SET OF TOOLS FOR THE DESIGN OF BROADCAST NETWORKS
ICS telecom EV and ICS manager ensure efficiency and cost-effectiveness at all stages of the network’s life:
ICS telecom EV facilitates the design of analog and digital broadcast networks in a number of standards:
Switching from analog to digital broadcasting maximizes use of existing infrastructure and minimizes capital expenditure.
HTZ telecom edition's “Select stations” function identifies the sites which cover the largest area or population thereby minimizing the number of sites needed to provide the service. In conjunction with the “power optimization” function and other tools, operators are able to assess potential savings by reducing transmitter power.

Population analysis starts with distribution modelling. ICS telecom EV models population in several ways from lists, vectors and rasters to provide maximum accuracy.
HTZ population reports cover:
ATDI: Maximizing network potential
The re-use of former broadcast spectrum by mobile operators creates potential interference issues for broadcasters.
ICS telecom EV calculates potential interference in a variety of ways. For standard cases of intersystem interference there are special functions and algorithms (for instance ITU SM1009 recommendation for broadcasts vs ILS) but sometimes users need more general tools to analyze interference. In this case, HTZ defines spectrum masks for the transmitter signal and rejection filters of the receiver and calculates interference based on spectrum convolution. Interference can be analyzed as broadcast Tx vs mobile Rx, mobile Tx vs broadcast Rx, interference coverage, P2P interference.
