TCI Enhances Capabilities of Jamaica’s Monitoring Systems

Fremont, CA – Jamaica’s Spectrum Management Authority (SMA) has contracted with TCI for the supply and installation of additional spectrum monitoring systems, and the upgrade of systems it currently operates. The initial phase of this award includes a new monitoring site at Montego Bay and a mobile-unit upgrade employing an 8 GHz TCI 647 antenna. A second phase will install a new monitoring site at Ocho Rios.

This contract builds on a previous award in 2006, which provided for engineering and installing one Series 700 spectrum monitoring system at a fixed site in Kingston, Jamaica, installing one Series 700 monitoring system in a Land Rover Defender provided by the SMA and packaging one Series 700 monitoring system for transportable use. All three systems were designed to run identical versions of TCI’s Scorpio Windows-based client software.

Using equipment that fully integrates with SMA’s previously installed systems, TCI will provide the regulator with expanded geographical coverage and frequency coverage of the full 9 kHz – 8 GHz range.
