Antenna Management

Central Management of your Antenna Master Data

AMS Antenna Management System is a workflow management tool from the product portfolio of PreHCM Services GmbH. AMS manages and archives the entire antenna master data of a network operator over the individual product life cycle of an antenna.

 It provides the antenna master data for further use:

 • in other tools (e.g. radio planning tools,
   application management tools, etc.)

 • for other network operators (e.g. when sharing joint locations or
   in the course of border coordination)

 •  for national regulatory authorities.

Basic Data Maintenance

Antenna Overview

In the "Manage Antenna Types" mask, all managed antennas are displayed to the user. A variety of search and filter functions allow the selection to be restricted to special attributes so that detailed parameters of an antenna data record can be viewed afterwards.

Antenna Details

In the "Antenna Type Details" mask, data on the status of the antenna and its use can be documented. Here it is also possible to assign operator-specific names. It is also possible to archive attachments such as data sheets.

Physical Parameters

Data sheet information on the antenna can be maintained in the "Physical Parameters" mask. Significant mechanical parameters such as dimensions, weight and wind load are kept in here. It is also possible to maintain the type of use of the antenna and the position of the connections.

Diagram Management

Antenna Pattern Overview

The antenna patterns stored for the antenna type and their electrical parameters (called configurations) are managed in the "Configuration List". It can be filtered according to various parameters (e.g. frequency, polarization, port). By marking the configurations with tags, it is possible to control which antenna patterns should be made available to the operators tool chain.

Antenna Pattern Details

Electrical data from the imported MSI diagrams can be displayed in the "Antenna Type Configuration". Relevant parameters such as frequency, tilt, vertical and horizontal half-power-beamwidths are automatically taken from the stored diagrams and displayed in the fields provided.

Antenna Pattern Visualisation

In the "Diagrams" tab, the imported diagrams can be displayed and evaluated in various coordinate systems (linear, polar) using various scales (logarithmic, linear).

Port Information

In the "Port Information" mask, antenna ports can be maintained in accordance with the AISG / BASTA standard according to the information on the data sheet.

Export Functions

EMVU Export Function

The EMVU export functionality enables envelope diagrams to be exported as a PDF file according to configurable parameters (e.g. frequency range, electrical and mechanical tilt ranges). These envelope diagrams can be attached to the application when applying for a site certificate (StoB).

Tool Export Functions

Using various export functions, antenna data can be made available in various formats (ATOLL, PegaPlan, PreHCM Mobile, etc.) either manually as a file or via Webservices drirecty connected to the operator’s tool chain.

Statistics

Manufacturer Statistics

The manufacturer statistics provide an evaluation of the number of antennas managed per manufacturer.

Lifecycle Statistics

The lifecycle statistics provide an overview of how many managed antennas are in various product lifecycle.
