Install note relative to the new library

Tip to upgrade Shared Equipment Databases (versions 18.4.7 – 12.4.7 – 3.4.7):

1 – Exit the application
2 – Copy all database files (.MWE, .ANT, .NFD…) to the root of the default directory (such as “C:\ATDI\ICS telecom x64\Base”)
3 – Start the application
4 – Copy the entire contents of the base directory (files and subdirectories) in the new shared folder.
5 – Change the directory that contains the database files with the “Database/Other databases/Location…” feature
All database files are now available in the shared folder.

Note: .TS and RIF files must be created or moved in the Base\TSR folder.

ATDI radio planning and spectrum management tools are well known for handling various types of cartographic data. This is now completed with support of latest Bing Maps. Bing Maps (previously Live Search Maps, Windows Live Maps, or  MSN Virtual Earth) is a web mapping service provided as a part of Microsoft’s Bing suite of search engines and powered by the Bing Maps for Enterprise framework.

The integration of Microsoft Bing Maps in ATDI products provides a high degree of image accuracy, comfort of use, and visually pleasing reports and printouts.
The availability of street names and other landmarks is a useful feature for users of ATDI software.

It has several use cases:

  • When deciding or verifying the location or address of assets in the field (sites, towers, antennas)
  • When verifying the type of infrastructure or buildings in the vicinity of a transmitter
  • When creating or verifying user-defined zones (polygons), for coverage or protection purposes
