Spectrum profiling—ICF's patented LTE aerial Spectrum Profiling Solution measures and characterizes the overall spectrum environment to rapidly identify external interferers and quantify spectrum usage over large geographic areas. The data collection and digital spectrum process discriminates between user traffic and external transmission sources that degrade user performance. User density profiles quantify marketwide data usage—an essential component in managing spectrum and capacity to support a rapidly growing number of data applications—leading to improved site and capacity planning.
Digital cable leakage identification (CLI)—ICF's digital CLI system tests all-digital (QAM-based) channel line-ups and hybrid analog and digital line-ups without the need to insert markers or signal synchronizers. Leakage measurements can be made in the most important bands: at 108/140MHz (aeronautical), 500–700MHz (white space), and 700–900MHz (LTE/cellular). ICF's digital CLI system improves sensitivity by 20dB over previous methods, making it ideal for directly measuring even faint leaks from standard flyover altitudes and flight speeds.
Broadband feasibility and sustainability—ICF performs market analysis, service definition, strategic reviews, pricing, demographics, and business case development for communities, regions, or businesses focused on economic development. ICF delivers planning, technical assistance, and training to enhance the utility of broadband technology to build capacity in community programs.
