Mauritius steps in for ATDI Spectrum engineering solution

MCML2

ATDI further enhancing local footprint and global expertise

ATDI is pleased to announce a new step further in its partnership with Multi Carrier Mauritius Ltd. as part of its strategic focus to invest sustainably in long-term relationships on Africa Continent.

ATDI was retained to provide the national Broadcaster of Mauritius, Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), with ICS telecom, ATDI’s flagship for radio planning and technical spectrum management software.

The Mauritius Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) is the national public broadcaster of the Republic of Mauritius, that is the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues and Agaléga. The headquarters of the MBC is found at Réduit, Moka, it also operate a station in Rodrigues. The MBC programmes are broadcast in 12 languages and provides 17 television channels in Mauritius, 4 in Rodrigues and 2 in Agaléga and 7 radio channels.

This will allow MCML to utilize the radio planning tool ICS telecom to develop, optimize and enhance further its networks (Radio and TV Broadcasting).

Multi Carrier Mauritius Ltd (MCML) is the sole provider of radio and television Transmission services in the Republic of Mauritius and its outer islands. MCML provides the link between the content providers of radio and television programs to their viewers and listeners.

MCML is wholly owned by the Government of Mauritius and operates under the aegis of the Ministry of Techno​logy, Communication and Innovation. The Board of Directors includes representatives from the Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and the Ministry of Technology, Communication and Innovation.

BelGIE renewing for Automated System for Radio Frequency Spectrum  Management

Belgie

Belarus re-demonstrating full Trust in ICS telecom and ICS manager

ATDI could record another key milestone in its successful long-year partnership with BelGIE, the State Supervisory Department for Telecommunications of Belarus, by renewing the contract for the provision and technical maintenance of an automated system for the management of radio frequency spectrum usage (ASM RFS) in Belarus.

The ASM RFS, developed by ATDI, has been in use in BelGIE since April 2007, and was periodically customized throughout the duration of the contract to fully and accurately respond to BelGIE’s evolving and growing requirements.

From its inception, ATDI’s flagship spectrum engineering tool, ICS telecom, and the spectrum management solution, ICS manager, have been integrated into the ASM RFS to provide BelGIE the required tools to perform various functions of radio spectrum management, such as: 

  • Management of radiocommunication stations in the civil sector
  • Inter-system electromagnetic compatibility analysis
  • Planning of use of the national radio spectrum resources;
  • National and international radio frequency coordination
  • Storage and analysis of monitoring results.

The Belorussian Receiving Centre was founded after the liberation of the BSSR from fascist occupation in 1944.

To organize radio communication and reception of radio broadcasting from Moscow, the equipment had been brought from Vologda, and the radio center had been deployed in the oldest National park of Belarus – Priluki, which was founded in the end of XVIII century.

Except the landscape on the bank of river Ptich this park is famous for the castle of XVI century belonged to the Oginsky’s family. In this park the first Belorussian film “The forest true story” had been produced.

Field strength exposure

optim6

The role of National Regulatory Authorities: human exposure, threat or opportunity?

  • Limited information may cause citizens to worry and complain.
  • Mayors are facing a dilemma: digital growth vs. citizen protection.
  • Although they have limited legal rights to prevent the rollout of base stations, mayors can influence through their local connections.

Worries about human exposure may hamper the development of broadband communications.

Regulator can play the key role of trusted party:

1.Gather technical information from operators;

2.Disclose information publicly;

3.Perform simulation and check potential issue with measurements;

4.Propose remediation technics and discuss implementation with operators;

5.Make your results publicly available;

6.Organize national discussions and issue guidelines.

Human exposure is actually an opportunity to get increased recognition for your public utility, from both general public and politicians.

 

Field Strength exposure – Inputs required for simulation with ICS telecom:

High resolution cartographic dataset including:

-Digital Terrain Model (DTM) describing the ground altitude of each point

-Building layer describing the contour and the height of each building

-In raster format

-If possible in vector format (SHP for example) (***)

-Image form WMS servers (Bing, Google, …)

-Address database coming from Bing servers

VectorIsomet

  • Import all transmitting stations on the map operating in the different bands for all services:
  • Mobile (2G, 3G, 4G)
  • Broadcast FM, TV (analogue and digital)
  • TETRA
  • With location and technical parameters:
  • Location
  • Frequency
  • Radiated power
  • Antenna patterns
  • Azimuth and tilt
  • Antenna height

Exposure1

Field Strength exposure – 3D coverage calculations:

  • Power sum of all signals received
  • Quadratic power sum
  • ECC 1999 method
  • On building facades
  • and/or
  • Outdoor / Indoor
  • In LOS / NLOS mode
  • From street to building rooftop

Field Strength exposure – Graphical analysis of Hot points:

On a given point (address) Information about:

  • Signals Received
  • Level where each signal is received
  • Station ID producing each signal

FS3D

Hot points can be located on the 2D view as well

Field Strength exposure – Address reporting:

Hot points are automatically reported

Reports

 

Field Strength exposure – Public access:

  • Locations with field strength greater than a given value can be published online
  • Transmitting sites can be located on the map including field strength on buildings
  • Thanks to a geo-reverse location engine, people can get information about exposure level
  • Protected sites can be located on the map (schools, hospitals…)
  • Web portal can be fully customized on demand
