A unique solution in the market for editing and publication of multi-country Frequency Allocation Table and Radio Interface Regulations

ICS RF allocations

Overview

ICS RF allocations


Leading technology to simplify and clarify National Frequency Allocation Tables

As a standalone application, or as a module to ICS manager, the ICS RF allocation editor
helps regulators to edit and maintain a comprehensive frequency allocation plan before publication 
in PDF or via a public web portal.



ICS RF allocation editor enables users to edit the content of the national Frequency Allocation Tables (FAT) and Radio Interface Regulations (RIR) prior to publication.


Nowadays it is easier than ever to customize a national FAT, whether by adding specific services and applications to a frequency band, adding special characters and images by service or by providing multiple hyperlinks to related documents (RIR, annexes, appendices, etc). This customization process facilitates rapid user searches to identify frequencies of interest.


ICS RF allocation editor manages FAT and RIR data for all countries, enabling the analysis of radio frequency services globally and simultaneously. Its cartographic engine displays stations on a map for a given service and frequency band, even cross-border, enabling a quick view of the spectrum usage in the area of interest.


ICS RF allocation has a powerful engine which helps regulators to build and publish detailed documentation about a national FAT. PDF books, as well as public websites, can be created in a fully automated way, enabling spectrum users to instantaneously access national FAT, transversing across the technical specifications within a frequency band (ITU service, RIR, footnotes, etc), to understand the use of the RF spectrum at a national and international level.


ICS RF allocation editor can be used as a standalone product or as a plug-in to ICS manager.
