Radio planning, spectrum management, communications electronic warfare, digital cartography & interactive web TV
The reference tool for planning telecommunication networks and managing frequency spectrum
ICS telecom is the key package in the planners' toolkit. It is capable of modelling any size of radio system from intensive local area to extensive countrywide. ICS telecom provides benefit at all stages of network ownership including tasks such as:
Engineering data sharing

ICS telecom software license
Technical support during 1 year (telephone, email) (*)
Maintenance agreement with access to regular software updates during 1 year (*)
1 day per year of software training on ATDI premises (Paris, Moscow, London, Warsaw, Sydney, Washington, Madrid, Bucharest, Mumbai) or on site (excluding travel and living expenses)
Access to ICS online during 1 year which includes (*):
50 MB of storage (more storage for additional price) Possibility to upload radio coverage and sites Data sharing (public or protected by password) Access to BRIFIC database Export stations and MW Access to 20 meters world wide DTM (from 01.01.2013)
(*) : Can be renewed on a yearly basis from the second year following the PO.
ICS telecom enables the planning engineer to develop rapidly and economically wide networks.
ICS telecom has applications throughout all modern radio networks, both fixed and mobile and across the frequency range 10kHz to 450GHz, including aeronautical systems, broadcast TV and radio, cellular, fixed radio access, land mobile, marine systems, microwave bearer, mobile data, paging, radar, satellite, telemetry.

3D Radio Network Planning 3D screen capture showing coverage from two transmitters and a link between two microwave sites. In 3D mode, users have the ability to view a project from any angle, any height and to zoom in or out of a project, restricted only by the users map resolution. In this view a town is shown in the foreground with hills rising beyond.
Analyse Potential Interference Few radio networks today enjoy the freedom of noise limited coverage. Spectrum demand means frequency sharing. ICS telecom lets the planner analyse the resulting interference and balance network availability with spectrum resource and budget.
Best Server In fixed radio access networks and indeed anywhere where links are needed to a multiplicity of outstations or subscribers, knowledge of which base station serves best is critical to antenna orientation at that subscriber. The report shown can also include 2nd, 3rd..., best server
Full Link Path Analysis Comprehensive link path analysis is standard within ICS Telecom showing a full and detailed cross section of the terrain and path geometry. ICS Telecom gives the Radio Network Planning Engineer the confidence that a path between users will be available when needed.
Directional Subscriber Antennas ICS Telecom has an internal equipment database that comes as standard. The tool allows the user to design their own antennas for use at base stations, link terminals and at subscribers. These polar responses can be viewed and used in 3D, allowing the Network Planner virtually unlimited network modelling potential.
High Capacity Sites Database Individual subscribers are now included in a powerful separate database mirroring the transition from general area planning through to installed base with known future prospects thus developing the network from concept to roll out. Data may also be imported from a network planning departments existing database.
Multi-media Database per Site Sites can comprise hundreds of co-located base station/terminal equipments. Each base station/terminal has the ability to be linked to Microsoft Word, Access, audio files, AVI files and to a range of Image file formats. This powerful utility gives the Network Planner the ability to log completely the history, current status and future of any site within their network.
UNICODE version ICS Telecom is now available in UNICODE version: all strings left to the user's convenience can be entered using UNICODE characters (Chinese, Japanese...).
