Gold medal standard - CRFS helps manage spectrum at major public events


CRFS, a leader in wide area real-time radio spectrum monitoring solutions, has supplied its RFeyeTM monitoring networks for major global sporting events, including almost 200 monitoring systems to Anatel, the Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency.


When large numbers of people come together for major events, spectrum planners must ensure 24/7 access to radio spectrum for the various stakeholders.  Broadcasters beam live pictures from the various stadia to billions of spectators world-wide, while the local available radio spectrum must also support the simultaneous tweets and insta-messages from thousands of individual spectators. In addition, emergency services, police and security agencies, as well as event organizers, depend on assured wireless communications for the smooth operation of all venues, for public safety, security and emergency response, around the clock.

RFeye networks provide regulators and spectrum managers the ability to monitor the radio spectrum across multiple venues in real-time. They enable rapid identification and location of unauthorized or interfering signals so that action can be taken quickly to mitigate any negative effects from unintentional and or malicious interferers.

“Our RFeye networks and powerful monitoring software can locate multiple signals of interest including frequency hopping broadband and low power co-channel interference” said Alistair Massarella, CEO at CRFS. “We take great pride in the role our products and solutions play in helping ensure the success of major global events.”
