The concerned parties will have 30 days to respond to the RFP by submitting a proposal for the provision of an integrated solution.
The Spectrum Management and Measurement System allows the Authority to efficiently manage the spectrum, establish the rules for its use, identify the entities exploiting the frequencies, define spectrum occupancy, and track the sources of interference. The system will lead to better license protection from any interference and un-authorized use.
SRA in coordination with TRA seeks international companies that have excellent qualifications and extensive experience in implementing SMMS-solutions. Each company may team with other companies when biding; however, there may be only one principal contractor with primary responsibility for the proposal, any subsequent award and program implementation.
