Client Background

Kennedy Data Systems is a Texas-based information technology corporation which provides user-friendly windows-based solutions that store data in a relational database which can be implemented in a standalone or client/server environment.

Business Challenge

The Remote Electrical Tilt Unit (RET) allows for the accurate control of antenna tilt, which eliminates the site-access requirement, allowing the tilt to be adjusted remotely from the base station/network control center in a matter of minutes. This allows for timely and accurate response to changing capacity requirements of the network.

portfolio_solution
Solution

The solution is comprised of a motor driven antenna with communication to the BTS via RS-485 and a microprocessor that controls the communication and performs supervisory functions. Most of the RET systems use the AISG protocol (Antenna Interface Standard Group) which is an open specification for the control interface of these systems.

 

Our software solution facilitated the communication between a host computer and the motor driven antenna through the RS-485 protocol and BeagleBone Black microprocessor performing control and supervisory functions.

 

Software packages developed by us included:

1)   Applications for desktop Linux

2)   Applications for embedded Linux

 

Our solution also provided a GUI host application software to support the test implementation.
