Britain’s rural communities are being put in the picture with the help of ATDI’s flagship planning and modelling tool, ICS Telecom.
Avanti supply broadband to homes and television entertainment programmes to businesses like salons and shopping malls to be screened to customers. The company have bought ICS Telecom to plan coverage, identify best server location and create clutter and terrain analysis of their wireless network. All are vital elements in rolling out their services across the UK’s rural areas.
Avanti are using WiFi in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz licence-exempt spectrum bands to bring access to rural areas where cable cannot reach. Avanti own and operate a DVB RCS VSAT Hub system which is integrated via resilient fibre to the main Internet peering points. Broadband services are then delivered to end users across the UK either directly via satellite or via 802.11a wireless distribution.
