ITU Pacific Training on Spectrum Management System for Developing Countries (SMS4DC)  

"Basic Training in Installation, Operation and Use"

The International Telecommunication Union Development Bureau (ITU-BDT) has developed a computer program to assist administrations of developing countries to perform their spectrum management responsibilities more effectively. This program is known as the Spectrum Management System for Developing Countries (SMS4DC). SMS4DC is intended to be a low-cost, entry-level spectrum management system; however, it is a very complex software tool with many technical features and functions.

For successful installation and operation of SMS4DC, the Administration should have in place existing legal, regulatory and technical mechanisms for national spectrum management. Also, while the system automates many of the technical processes, the final choice and decision for the frequency assignment remains with the engineer. Therefore, operating staff must have sufficient knowledge to understand the regulatory and technical processes that are the operational core of SMS4DC and to interpret correctly the results of the algorithms so that they can make good decisions.

In this connection, ITU in support from the Ministry of Public Enterprises, Tourism and Communication, Government of Fiji, is organising a 3-day training of basic installation, operation and use of the SMS4DC from 25 to 27 June 2010 at the University of the South Pacific (USP), Suva, Fiji Islands, The training will provide principles of spectrum management and hands-on experience in the SMS4DC which will use the newest version of the software i.e. SMS4DC version 3.0.

Trainees are expected to have a minimum of the following qualifications:

  • An engineer who has proper background on spectrum management

  • Be familiar with basic relevant calculations (e.g. wave propagation, interference, service area)

  • Have knowledge about the National Frequency Allocation table, frequency assignment, licencing and invoicing procedures

  • Have basic knowledge on computer aided spectrum management
