PCTEL and TRX Systems Automate Indoor Mapping of Cellular Networks

PCTEL and TRX Systems, the provider of NEON® Location Solutions have together announced the first scanning receiver-based cellular network test and measurement solution with automated indoor/outdoor geo-referencing. With the PCTEL-TRX solution, engineers will be able to easily collect and geo-locate RF (radio frequency) data where GPS signals are not available. The system’s automatic 2D and 3D mapping supports engineering activities for DAS, small cell, and heterogeneous wireless networks.

The new network testing solution integrates TRX’s NEON® Signal Mapper 3D location and mapping solution with PCTEL’s SeeHawk® Touch test and measurement software and IBflex® scanning receivers. PCTEL’s scanning receivers exceed the capability of mobile devices, leveraging exceptional measurement accuracy and broad dynamic range to produce a more complete picture of the RF environment. Scanning receiver-based solutions such as SeeHawk® Touch are one of the most reliable solutions for planning, designing, benchmarking, and troubleshooting wireless networks.

TRX’s 3D location and mapping solution simplifies and dramatically reduces the time required to complete signal testing both indoors and out. Field personnel will no longer need to as they walk through a building or around a campus. Instead, the new TRX-PCTEL integrated solution uses NEON® Signal Mapper to deliver real-time geo-referenced signal data that can be visualized both locally by the user and remotely on a 3D display rather than manually tapping out location on a 2D map.

The 3D test and measurement solution will be available only from PCTEL with current SeeHawk® Touch users having the option of upgrading their systems to access the 3D mapping capability. PCTEL will also be present at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain, February 27 - March 2 for demonstrations.
