ICS Telecom is ATDI's modeling platform for planning telecommunication networks and managing frequency spectrum. It focuses on the network design needs for commercial operators, spectrum regulators, equipment manufacturers, and consultants. One of ICS Telecom's main strengths is in the modeling of heterogeneous networks with dedicated features and functions.
ICS Telecom is the key package in a planner’s toolkit. It is capable of modeling any size of radio system from intensive local area to extensive countrywide. ICS Telecom enables the planning engineer to develop large wide-area networks rapidly and economically. ICS Telecom has features and functions that support all modern radio networks, both fixed and mobile, and across the frequency range 10 kHz to 450 GHz.
ICS Telecom is a comprehensive tool box for modeling radio communications in the MF/HF/VHF/UHF/SHF/EHF frequency bands. It is the key package in the planners' toolkit, capable of modeling any size of radio system from intensive local area to extensive countrywide. Some examples of the technologies that can be modeled and analyzed in the software are:
- Land mobile radio
- Fixed wireless access (point-to-point and point-to-multipoint - 802.16d WiMAX, WiFi Mesh, Microwave, LMDS/MMDS, TETRA/TETRAPOL, etc.)
- Cellular/mobile (GSM, GPRS, CDMA/EVDO/EDGE, HSDPA/HSUPA, 802.16e WiMAX, LTE)
- Broadcast (analog and digital TV and radio; simulcast and multicast)
- Telemetry systems
- Indoor communications (WiFi, 802.16e WiMAX)
- Maritime radiolocation and communications
- Aeronautical radiolocation and communications
- Radar systems
- Satellite earth stations
ICS Telecom provides benefits at all stages of network ownership. Whether a system is being designed from the ground up, an existing system is being expanded, or interference analysis is required for existing heterogeneous systems, ICS Telecom has the features and functions for the task. ICS Telecom can be used for:
- Technology evaluation
- Business modeling
- Infrastructure dimensioning
- Network planning
- Spectrum optimization
- Network proving
- Engineering data sharing
- System administration
- Network optimization
A unique strength of ICS Telecom is its ability to model technology convergence. Given the strengths in modeling heterogeneous networks, ICS Telecom provides the planning engineer with a rapid and economic means for analyzing the impact of new technologies in existing network infrastructure.
