TCI Hosts USTTI Course on Spectrum Management & Monitoring

Enhance your knowledge of spectrum management and monitoring at our tuition-free, five-day program.

TCI International, Inc. (an SPX Company) is once again pleased to host industry and government professionals from around the world at a tuition-free training course, offered by the United States Telecommunications Training Institute (USTTI). We invite you to join us at TCI corporate headquarters in Fremont, California for:

USTTI Course 19-113
Practical Applications of Spectrum Management and Spectrum Monitoring
May 13 – May 17, 2019
Fremont, California (Northern Silicon Valley)

Course description
The course focuses on the practical application of ITU-compliant spectrum management and monitoring techniques and the modern day challenges associated with both, including licensing tools, propagation analysis tools, radio direction finding and signal measurements for fixed, mobile and transportable applications. The course employs classroom and hands-on activities to provide students with a practical overview of spectrum management and monitoring techniques and their interaction. Classroom time is used to instruct in system planning and coverage analysis, the principles of propagation analysis, operational principles of a monitoring station, principles of signal measurements, radio direction finding, signal identification and recording and RF drone detection techniques. The hands-on portion of the course will demonstrate real-time application of the principles taught in the classroom and include mission planning, operational set-up, running missions and data analysis.

Learning Objectives
To learn practical implementation of spectrum management, spectrum monitoring, radio direction finding and signal measurement techniques as they relate to the international standards of the ITU and today’s signal environment. This includes:

  1. management tools;
  2. monitoring coverage and planning tools;
  3. propagation analysis tools;
  4. radio direction finding;
  5. signal monitoring, identification and correlation to the frequency management database;
  6. spectrum occupancy observations and analysis as part of the frequency management function; and
  7. transmitter measurements as required to ensure compliance to the radio regulations.

Managerial and high level technical, with emphasis on hands-on demonstrations.

We recommend that, in addition to applying for Practical Applications of Spectrum Management and Spectrum Monitoring, you also consider applying for USTTI Course 19-112, Introduction to Radio Spectrum Monitoring and Measuring. Scheduled for May 6 – May 10, 2019 in Columbia, Maryland (Washington, DC area), Introduction to Radio Spectrum Monitoring and Measuring forms a natural precursor to our tuition-free, five-day course.

TCI’s longstanding commitment to spectrum monitoring includes advancing the state of technology, as well as enhancing the expertise of users. This year’s seminar offers you an unusual opportunity to acquire practical knowledge and technical insights from an exceptionally accomplished team of spectrum professionals. We hope you’ll join us.
