In November, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) organized a training workshop on "Implementation of radio monitoring systems according to ITU-R recommendations" with a special focus on the Africa region. The workshop was conducted in Munich at the premises of Rohde & Schwarz within the framework of a capacity building partnership between ITU and the company.
The “ITU Academy”, which is responsible for the realization of this kind of workshops, invited twelve representatives of regulatory authorities from various countries in Africa, Asia and the Gulf region. The participants attended the five-day workshop at the Rohde & Schwarz training center, where experts from the company held presentations and gave practical spectrum monitoring demonstrations. As the company is deeply committed to the ITU, additional events in Munich are planned for the future.
Rohde & Schwarz has been successful in the field of spectrum monitoring for decades. Its solutions for stationary and mobile systems ensure that regulators worldwide can properly perform their jobs. Any interference from wireless services is prevented, or detected and eliminated.
