Working with Ofcom

Broadcaster information is now flowing smoothly at the UK spectrum regulator Ofcom thanks to a new database created by ATDI

 

ATDI won a contract to streamline its central database of all radio and television stations for the UK as well as international coordination. It was a task that required the melding of a disparate range of sources.
“For decades, Ofcom had been working with a variety of non-standard and ad hoc data sources. The main one of these was in the Microsoft Access format but others were contained in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and as Ascii format files tables and, occasionally, text files,” says ATDI lead engineer Alex Krasnojen. “In addition, Ofcom works closely with the BBC and broadcast infrastructure company Arqiva and the three organisations use a database format unique to them – UKPM.”
The variety of data formats used by Ofcom made both internal and external data exchange an issue.
ATDI was tasked with unifying the information and presenting it in a standard, easily-accessible format. The basis for doing this was the company’s software tool ICS Manager. ICS Manager is in use by regulators worldwide to tabulate the abundance of details about the radio services. ICS Manager is tailored to the needs of the user, so ATDI engineers worked extensively to ensure Ofcom’s version of ICS Manager met the organisation’s requirements as closely as possible.
The result is that there is now a central Ofcom database which works with the different formats for the maintenance, processing and transfer of data. The database encompasses all Ofcom’s activities, processes, tasks and types of data. Its implementation has smoothed workflows and made each of Ofcom’s processes simpler and more efficient.
Alex notes: “Something very gratifying about this project is the degree to which we have been able to work and communicate with Ofcom. A situation like the one we found, with broadcaster information in various locations and in differing formats, was very complex. Our approach was to talk to Ofcom and identify a robust solution has been most pleasing on both sides.”

 

OFCOM (UK) Broadcast Spectrum Management Solution: ICS telecom EV + ICS manager

Singapore’s drive to become a truly smart city is being assisted by ATDI.

The city-state’s spectrum regulator, IMDA, is part of a coordinated effort to connect and, where appropriate, remotely control local infrastructure. For instance, city authorities are examining the feasibility of smart street lights and some city planners are considering how to incorporate smart city concepts into new buildings.

IMDA is overseeing the radio planning, modeling and spectrum management for all the connected systems and is relying on ATDI’s assistance to do so. IMDA has benefitted from ATDI’s consultancy services for the last seven years and has recently extended that relationship with a new contract.

“It’s very exciting times in Singapore,” says ATDI spectrum engineer Yahya Khaled, “and ATDI is involved with IMDA in studies of the propagation aspects of different technologies such as LoRa, NB-IoT and WiSUN. ATDI’s new planning and modeling software tool, ICS telecom EV, has been invaluable in that.

“With the density of population and of services in Singapore, spectrum co-existence is a big issue. ATDI’s partnership with IMDA means we have plenty of experience in working together to overcome interference problems – and with the new contract taking our relationship into the future, we will continue to do so as Singapore becomes ever smarter.”
