Egypt’s National Telecom Regulatory Authority Contracts with TCI to Add Mobile Spectrum Monitoring Capabilities

Fremont, CA — Egypt’s National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has contracted with TCI for an ITU-compliant mobile radio monitoring and DF station as well as a spectrum monitoring control center. Signed on June 9, 2015, the contract is the first awarded to TCI by NTRA.

NTRA’s mobile monitoring and DF station consists of an ITU-type III GMC Savana integrated with a TCI Model 737 system — the highest-performance member of TCI’s family of spectrum monitoring systems. Assigned to monitor and DF frequencies from 20 MHz to 8 GHz, this mobile station will be equipped with a TCI 647 antenna.

NTRA’s Control Center will feature TCI’s ITU-compliant client-server Scorpio™ spectrum monitoring software to perform complex analytics on digitally modulated signals.
