PCTEL Announces LTE-LAA Testing on IBflex Scanning Receivers

At the DAS and Small Cells Congress, PCTEL has announced LTE-LAA (Licensed Assisted Access) testing capabilities on its IBflex scanning receiver. LAA supplements LTE network capacity by enabling carriers to use freely available unlicensed spectrum along with their licensed spectrum holdings. LTE-LAA operates in noisy, uncontrolled environments, where it must share spectrum with services such as Wi-Fi. IBflex scanning receivers accurately measure LTE-LAA coverage and signal quality so that wireless carriers can verify and optimize their LTE-LAA deployments.

IBflex scanning receivers support LTE-LAA measurements worldwide, including on 5 GHz and CBRS spectrum. The IBflex enables simultaneous testing of multiple technologies, including LTE MIMO and LTE Advanced Pro features such as LTE-LAA, NB-IoT, and LTE-M. IBflex scanners are designed with low power consumption, a hot-swap battery system, and Bluetooth connectivity for ease of use indoors or out.

PCTEL displayed the IBflex and other test and measurement tools at DAS and Small Cells Congress.
