PARIS -- Cril Telecom Software (CTS), the leading provider of spectrum management systems and services and network planning and optimisation tools, today announces two new contracts for its Ellipse Mobile and Ellipse Transmission Planning Tool Suite.

Both contracts, with Monaco Telecom International (MTI) and Tunisiana - Orascom Telecom Tunisia, include installation, data migration, training, warranty and maintenance.

Ellipse Planning will be used by Monaco Telecom International (MTI), a Vivendi company, for radio design and optimisation of several of its foreign networks including Afghanistan’s GSM operator’s network Roshan.

Orascom Telecom Tunisia, the second GSM operator in Tunisia and known under the trade name Tunisiana, owned by Orascom Telecom Holding and Wataniya Telecom, Kuwait, selected CTS Ellipse Planning after a rigorous technical and quality evaluation to continuously expand its network.

Mr. Hisham Siblini, Technical Director of Orascom Telecom Tunisia said: ‘Orascom Telecom Tunisia has chosen CTS Ellipse Mobile and Transmission Planning Tool Suite after a rigorous technical and quality evaluation of different planning tools. The Technical Department needed an integrated, flexible and user-friendly cellular and RF Planning and Backhaul Transmission Planning Solution featuring the latest available engineering models and techniques and capable to sustain and support the rapid growth of our network.’

Monaco Telecom International (MTI) required a flexible integrated planning software solution for its radio and transmission networks that is capable of managing several different roll-out projects at a given time. Ellipse Planning includes advanced check-out and re-sync functions that enable engineers to perform radio design in a disconnected mode. Network planners can use the software while being out in the field.

Mr. Xuyen Lam, Head of Radio Activities Planning, Monaco Telecom International (MTI), states: “We chose the Ellipse Mobile and Transmission Planning Tool Suite from CTS in order to increase our engineer efficiency. This ‘all-in-one’ modular suite from CTS facilitates the exchange and communication between transmission and radio planning engineers. We also appreciate the sophistication of the automatic frequency planning optimisation features, which will allow us from the very beginning of the network planning and roll-out to maximise spectrum usage, while maintaining a high end-user voice quality.”

Integrated into the solution is a comprehensive RDBMS Oracle database to ensure high-security data sharing. Ellipse Planning is a future-proof planning system that is able to support GPRS / EDGE and 3G technologies.

Mr. Faouzi Hassine, Sales Director of CTS and Mr. Morgan Zimmermann, Sales & Global Alliances Manager stated: ‘We are delighted to have Orascom Telecom Tunisia and Monaco Telecom International (MTI) as new customers. This proves yet again, that our Ellipse Mobile and Transmission Planning Tool Suite is highly recognised in the market.’
