New Indoor Grid Testing Tool Helps Building Owners Meet Public Safety Coverage Requirements

PCTEL has released a new indoor grid testing tool, designed to help building owners meet public safety coverage requirements. The indoor grid testing feature for PCTEL’s tablet-based SeeHawk Touch software simplifies the data collection and reporting process, automatically generating reports that conform to most local requirements.

In many jurisdictions in the United States, building owners must verify public safety network coverage with grid testing in order to acquire or maintain an occupancy permit. It can be a time consuming and error prone process that requires experienced personnel. Engineers often use pen and paper to prepare test plans, execute tests, record results, and create reports. PCTEL’s solution uses tablet-based SeeHawk Touch software and a PCTEL scanning receiver such as the IBflex to integrate all phases of the grid testing process.

The indoor grid testing tool includes pre-configured reporting for the most common public safety coverage requirements, based on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) or International Fire Code (IFC) standards. It also supports custom reporting, including for non-public safety applications such as radio over IP.

PCTEL is demonstrating the SeeHawk Touch grid testing feature along with its other RF test and measurement solutions at 2017 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas from September 25-27.
