Spectrum Engineering


Spectrum engineering enables radio engineers to understand whether spectrum can be used in given bandwidth without causing undue interference to others.  This is often referred to as spectrum engineering or spectrum modelling. Spectrum modelling establishes the parameters to be applied to a spectrum band to ensure it does what is expected. Spectrum engineering is the process of making the spectrum do what it needs to do.

ATDI has been developing spectrum engineering for over three decades. Our solutions ensure limited spectrum resources produce the maximum returns. It reduces the likelihood of interference and allows engineers to mitigate the risks associated with interference. Functions include frequency sharing and spectrum re-farming, and users can reduce the risks associated with network rollout by modelling real-life scenarios to identify potential problems in advance.

Our solutions allow users to model the impact of co-channel spectrum blocks to understand their impact on others. For equipment suppliers, they can assess the compatibility of a frequency band to see if it's fit for purpose. Modelling a network with a radio propagation tool like HTZ removes the risks associated with network configuration and ensures the allocated spectrum achieves the network operator's objectives.


With over three decades of experience, ATDI is a leading spectrum engineering organisation. Some of the types of analysis available in HTZ, are listed below.

  • Migration analysis from analogue to digital communications;
  • Outdoor to indoor coverage by signal penetration loss calculation;
  • Population analysis from points, and areas by vector polygon import or raster files
  • Radio propagation model tuning by correlation analysis between predictions and measurements
  • Traffic analysis by the ground occupancy, target areas or mesh blocks to cover


Apart from software solutions, ATDI offers a variety of spectrum engineering services. These consulting services span the whole network lifecycle from radio network planning and implementation to network optimisation. Companies of every size, ranging from spectrum regulators, mobile network operators to emergency services, all rely on our know-how to support their networks.

ATDI offers a team of experienced engineers who manage a wide variety of projects. Depending on customer requirements, these range from analysing the impact of proposed radio services on adjacent channels to managing international coordination. Using our radio propagation software, HTZ Communications, allows engineers to model complex scenarios with ease. The combination of experience allows us to stay ahead of the game, providing high-quality studies and exceeding customer expectations.
