Webinar Overview

The use of wireless spectrum continues to grow and evolve with the widespread adoption of connected devices and new standards such as 5G. Monitoring these signals of interest is now more important than ever for commercial, government, and defense applications.    

As a result of complex waveforms, wider bandwidths, and higher frequencies, the requirements for spectrum monitoring have changed dramatically. Traditional spectrum analysis solutions may not be viable in many scenarios, such as regulatory, technical surveillance countermeasures, and signal intelligence applications.

In this Webinar, we will cover:

The unique issues and challenges that users face when monitoring the spectrum in complex environments   

How software-defined radio can overcome these challenges and change the spectrum monitoring landscape  

Real-world examples showing how these new capabilities can better monitor signals of interest  

The rapid pace of innovation leading to higher frequencies, wider bandwidths, and more complex waveforms 


The benefits of Software-Defined Spectrum Analysis solutions in addressing and overcoming these challenges

Real-world case studies and examples in various scenarios, including signals intelligence (SIGINT), technical surveillance counter measures (TSCM), and regulatory applications
