Remote Collection System For Network Survey And Characterization

The Integrated Collection System (ICS) product line includes industry-leading cellular and wireless network characterization solutions. ICS passively collects data, which allows for a wide range of applications such as characterizing advanced cellular and Wi-Fi networks; detecting rogue cellular base stations; and passively locating cellular base stations. The breadth of ICS products allows users to find the right product for their needs including tactical, stationary, and commercial applications.


Integrated Collection System (ICS) 500

ICS-500 surveys the environment and records the metadata of detected control channels and the information therein. These completely passive measurements are obtained without handshaking or any additional interfacing with the communications network.

The ICS-500 system is an advanced network characterization tool with a feature rich software interface allowing basic and advanced users various levels of system control and data analysis. The DCode Pro software is the user’s primary interface when taking control of the ICS-500 system, providing real time visual notifications, managing data, and conducting advanced signals analysis.

Optimized for multi-protocol, multi-band cellular survey at high rates of speed, ICS-500 is the ideal network survey tool. ICS-500 is enclosed within an IP67 rated aluminum chassis and features an integrated alternate power supply in case of intermittent power loss while collecting data.
