PCTEL Demonstrates its 5G mmWave Testing Solution

At Mobile World Congress 2018PCTEL demonstrated 5G mmWave spectrum testing on its new flex scanning receiver. The new scanning receiver can be used to clear newly available mmWave spectrum, evaluate the performance of 5G trials, and optimize coverage for planned commercial deployments of both fixed wireless access (FWA) and mobile 5G networks.

Scanning receivers provide precise field measurements that are essential for ensuring wireless network performance. With the addition of mmWave band range, PCTEL’s flex scanning receivers are ready to support the rapidly evolving 5G ecosystem.

The scanning receivers feature radio technology which will easily adapt to new 5G technologies, including standards from Verizon and the 3GPP. It uses a down converter to support mmWave spectrum and enables simultaneous testing of both mmWave and traditional cellular spectrum, including 2G, 3G, and 4G network testing.

PCTEL demonstrated its mmWave scanning receiver and also other test and measurement solutions at MWC 2018.
