AlanDick, the cellular, radar, enterprise and communications infrastructure specialist, exhibited a selection from its wide range of high end technical solutions and products for the communications industry at this month's CommunicAsia.

Solutions on display included multiple integrated antennas; environmental solutions such as the company's innovative cellular lamp post project in Singapore; in-building systems; and the group's wireless installation components, which are available for rapid delivery to installation sites in most countries of the world.

CommunicAsia was also the Asian launch pad for Sensustech, a system designed to give operators a true measure of their own networks quality as well as benchmarking them against competitors.

For the first time, the Sensustech Insight system allows operators a near real time view of the quality of experience being delivered throughout their network. This is achieved by the use of large numbers of revolutionary intelligent and mobile devices called "PAMs" which are controlled from, and continually report back to, a central server. The system delivers key information, by exception, to a range of job functions including network engineering, sales and marketing, product management and strategic management. It is, claims the company, a tool that allows quality to be used as a key competitive strategy.

PAMs are specifically designed to be fitted in any type of vehicle without being obtrusive. They can be fitted in taxis, buses, delivery vehicles…indeed any vehicle that is moving around the network. They can also be fitted in permanent sites such as airport lounges and shopping malls.

The system has attracted interest from regulators, who see the tool as a much fairer method of evaluating networks compared to `drive' testing. The Insight system is also in use for due diligence investigation related to network merger and acquisition.

AlanDick's integrated antennas include a number of leading edge designs that integrate the amplifier - with its filtering requirements - inside the antenna, so saving on inventory, installation, hardware and site rental costs.

Integrated antennas offer carriers and other interested parties a number of advantages, including: improved blocking of unwanted signals; fully transparent variable gain and tilt control; improved system noise figures; increased uplink sensitivity; improved cell balance and a reduction in installation time plus overall points of failure.

The company's latest environmental solution project has been the successful deployment of two concealed antenna "cellular lamp posts" for StarHub, Singapore's integrated info-communications provider.

The creation of Singapore's first aesthetically friendly solution is the result of a close liaison between AlanDick, StarHub and PowerGrid, the approving authorities for the use of electricity substation sites in Singapore.

In-building solutions are very much in demand, with the company having experienced a surge in orders for in-building systems worldwide.

Rounding out the group's offerings at this year's CommunicAsia was a range of cellular solutions such as GenTrak, a system aimed at providing complete remote management for cell site back-up generators; and SiteWatch, a complete management system for base stations that helps to prevent site downtime, as well as offering cost savings in a number of areas.
