Broadcast - CHIRplus_BC

Regulatory authorities and broadcast network operators in over 90 countries worldwide use the software CHIRplus_BC to plan, coordinate and optimize broadcast networks of all kinds of standards and technologies. Thanks to the intuitive user interface and the implemented automation macros, broadcast engineers can quickly leverage all capabilities of CHIRplus_BC. The macros, launched with a mouse-click, allow for automated workflows of repetitive planning and calculation processes. The software includes all interference calculations a broadcast planner and coordinator needs, also considering other services operating in the same or adjacent frequency bands.

User friendliness and technology independence

The software includes intuitive user dialogs optimized for broadcast planning. It provides pre-set system parameters and variants, for each network technology, by default. This allows for faster click-through of the planning procedure and reduces errors. All digital terrestrial television (DTT) systems, such as DVB-T/T2, ISDB-T, DTMB, CMMB and ATSC/ ATSC 3.0 and digital radio systems, such as T-DAB, IBOC, HD Radio, DRM, DRM+ are supported by CHIRplus_BC.

Technology Consulting

Independent & competent

Professional radio networks have to be carefully designed if they are to deliver the service that users are expecting in the most optimum and cost-effective way. It is important to have knowledgeable experts involved in the design, procurement and roll-out of such networks and for many organizations who use these networks, they do not have the full set of in-house capabilities covering all areas.

Our area of expertise

LS telcom's technology consulting team have all of the skills necessary to ensure the performance of radio networks and can handle all stages of the process independently and competently including:

  • Audits and expert opinion
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Support of technical decision making
  • Evaluation of concepts
  • User requirements capture
  • Development of tender specifications
  • Procurement support
  • Cost analysis
  • Performance and quality audits

System Architecture

Planning a radio network is important, however it is equally essential to ensure that the overall architecture of the system to which it is connected is well designed. From the control room, to the backhaul and radio networks, having the right architecture and topology will enable more flexible use and a better quality of service.

Let´s share our knowledge

LS telcom has extensive experience of designing and refining system architectures for government and commercial organizations, and we can help you ensure that your whole network is optimized to provide the best possible service.

Planning & Optimization Services

Getting the best coverage and providing the right service for a radio network requires more than just higher towers and bigger antennas. Planning a network involved understanding what the network is going to be used for, and who by, and most importantly where. Providing the right level of coverage then has to take lots of technical factors into account such as the frequency in use and the propagation model, but perhaps more importantly practical factors such as whether sites can be put in the right locations on buildings or in open areas, whether power and connectivity is available and what other restrictions may apply to a site.

How we can help you

LS telcom has an expert team who have extensive experience of network planning and optimization for all kinds of users from police to airports and oil to transport. Whether you are considering establishing a new network, want to modernize an aging network, or just wish to improve the performance of an existing network, our team know the right steps to take.

Digital Mapping Data

All spectrum planning and optimization tools rely on accurate data input. Besides information about transmitters, receivers, devices, equipment, antennas, etc. this includes also digital mapping data. Digital terrain and land usage models provide the basis for the technical analyses (e.g. line of sight checks, coverage and interference assessments, etc.) and images, such as street maps or satellite photographs, are used for orientation and visualization purposes.

Rely on our long-term experience

LS telcom is able to support you in the selection of the required mapping data and provides you with a high quality data package that is required for your daily work.
