This summer’s Olympic Games will be the pinnacle of achievement for many athletes but for ATDI it’s a case of been there done that.

The company supplies planning and modelling software, including ICS telecom and Spectrum-E, to Brazilian regulator Anatel; with the spectrum demands associated with the football World Cup in the country successfully negotiated during 2014, the expectation is for a similarly smooth ride when the Olympics arrive in August.

Demands on spectrum resources during global sporting events – the World Cup and Olympics are the world’s biggest – are huge, and coordination of all the temporary uses of spectrum creates a major headache for regulators. ATDI, though, has the cure.

Anatel were under incredible pressure to make everything work during the World Cup,” says ATDI project manager engineer Vanessa Deligi, “but, with the help of ICS telecom and Spectrum-E, everything worked; Anatel staff were able to do everything they wanted. I believe that, during the Olympics, the systems will perform better than ever.”

She adds that ATDI’s software has automated processes for Anatel, vastly speeding up interference analysis and frequency nomination. “Before they started using ICS telecom and Spectrum-E, many calculations were done manually. ATDI has been able to customise its software for Anatel own workflow so that requests for temporary spectrum usage now get an answer much faster.”

Vanessa notes that ATDI’s tools and associated consultancy services have allowed Anatel to better manage its workflow and greatly speed up its coordination with the companies seeking to use spectrum during the World Cup and Olympics.

“Anatel needed systems that were fast, efficient and robust during the World Cup and that’s what they got,” she states. “During the Olympics, that will happen again.”

To meet all the demands of 4G cell phone users at the World Cup, Anatel requested that all Brazilian cell phone operators provide 4G coverage in the 12 cities hosting World Cup matches. With the help of ATDI tools, Anatel staff were able to place all the cellular base stations in the map to check if each operator was meeting its obligation to provide the required 4G service. ATDI software was central in helping Anatel ensure the level of service that mobile phone users have come to expect.

On March 26, 2015 AFTIC awarded the decision for the acquisition of the new SGER to ATDI inc (USA).
ATDI commenced delivery of the various milestones related to the contract on April 8, 2015.
The system will allow AFTIC to manage the allocation and licensing of the entire radio spectrum in Argentina.
The initial milestone corresponding to software licenses, and project management related deliverables was completed on May 29, 2015. ATDI will continue with completing its pre-implementation analysis, database migration, business process implementation, skill transfer and additional customizations over the coming 10 months.
ATDI will consolidate AFTIC’s spectrum management data within Spectrum-E’s NoSQL data-store.
The new SGER is expected to go live by April 2016.
