HP Supplies Spectrum Monitoring Solution to the Republic of Zimbabwe; As Zimbabwe Expands its Wireless Communications Infrastructure, HP Helps Create an Efficient System That Detects Unlicensed Users.GENEVA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 4, 1995--In the Republic of Zimbabwe, Hewlett-Packard Company will play a vital role in meeting the country's spectrum monitoring needs for detecting and identifying unlicensed users of its airwaves, HP today announces here at Telecom '95, an international trade show.
HP will act as a subcontractor One who takes a portion of a contract from the principal contractor or from another subcontractor.
When an individual or a company is involved in a large-scale project, a contractor is often hired to see that the work is done. to Technology for Communications International of Sunnyvale, Calif., which has received a contract from Zimbabwe for an ITU-compliant spectrum monitoring and management system. HP will provide computers and networking hardware Networking hardware typically refers to equipment facilitating the use of a computer network. Typically, this includes routers, switches, access points, network interface cards and other related hardware. , test and measurement equipment, and a portion of the operating software for the system. The value of the agreement was not disclosed.
The spectrum monitoring and management system automatically detects and identifies unlicensed users, ensuring that a country's limited radio spectrum is available to authorized users authorized user Radiation physics A person who, having satisfied the applicable training and experience requirements, is granted authority to order radioactive material and accepts responsibility for its safe receipt, storage, use, transfer and disposal . Under terms of the contract, the system will be operational in Zimbabwe in 1997. Demand for new wireless communications wireless communications
