BRADES, Montserrat – The Montserrat Info-Communications Authority (MICA) has completed the implementation of its new enterprise software system designed to manage the island's national spectrum plan.

MICA is the local authority responsible for managing all of Montserrat's telecommunications licensing and the associated allocation of the valuable spectrum. Spectrum is the scarce resource that enables internet connectivity, mobile phones, aircraft and shipping communications, plus broadcasters on AM FM and TV frequencies, along with a host of other telecommunications practices.

The new integrated telecommunications management system (iTMS) Go-Live date was Wednesday April 2, 2014. The Canadian company, PW Consulting, which built and installed the system for MICA, celebrated the milestone with the staff and board members in a typically Canadian ice hockey fashion by "dropping the puck" to symbolize the accomplishment.

The new system will enhance MICA's ability to manage all aspects of spectrum use on Montserrat, create a "knowledge repository" on all frequency use and optimize activities around the allocation and frequency occupancy for all customer types that MICA serves.
