ICS Monitoring is a flexible network monitoring solution that allows users to better understand the impact of interference on their network and others. It is compatible with leading hardware monitoring equipment suppliers and allows the user to work with different hardware suppliers simultaneously. ICS Monitoring manages a variety of measurement data and features an automatic post-processing function for real-time data streams. It forms part of our spectrum management solution and is fully compatible with ICS Manager.
ICS Monitoring can be used to assess spectrum use, monitor emissions and regulate the control of license emissions. It performs tasks in accordance with radio license regulations and verifies compliance with the frequency allocation conditions, frequency use and channel occupancy. ICS Monitoring can be used to generate interference case studies and search for unauthorised emissions.
ICS Monitoring features a fully integrated license equipment database for a quick project set-up. Measurement results from a study are automatically stored for analysis and this can start without interrupting existing measurement campaigns running.
When an unauthorised transmission is identified the user can plot the location of the transmission, with data captured for frequency, power and duration on the integrated map layers and terrain data to allow a quick resolution.
The software compares spectrum emissions with spectrum masks from authorised transmitters, as well as reference spectrum masks.
ICS Monitoring features:
ICS Monitoring provides the following features:
ICS Monitoring can be customised to incorporate live-chat or auto-chat functions, to improve access to the service and response times.
