Within the framework of the esteemed events and conferences that enhance NTRA's rank in the international, regional and African arena, the African Telecommunication Union (ATU) has invited NTRA to participate in the workshops and training courses that will be held in cooperation with the USAID for the capabilities of the African Union Development and through the use of specialized experts from the Office European communications (ECO).
The SEAMCAT Training and the capacity building workshop on Spectrum Management is held under the theme “Demystifying 5G, and the delicate balancing act of licensed, unlicensed and shared spectrum” from 30 to 31 January and 1 to 3 February, 2017, respectively, at the Nairobi Safari Club Hotel, Nairobi - KENYA.
SEAMCAT is a software tool, based on the Monte-Carlo simulation method, developed by the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunication administrations (CEPT). This tool permits statistical modelling of different radio interference scenarios for performing sharing and compatibility studies between radiocommunications systems in the same or adjacent frequency bands.
It is worth mentioning that this simulation software is used in many ways in Spectrum Planning Sector and foremost of which is the preparation of Egyptian administration's documents and contributions to ITU-R by conducting technical studies for various wireless systems compatibility and sharing such as making compatibility studies between mobile systems and terrestrial broadcasting networks in 700 MHz band.
