All in-one drive test solution offers cost-effective way to test Citizens Broadband
Radio Service (CBRS) standards
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – February 25, 2020
– ThinkRF Corporation, the leader in software-defined
spectrum analysis, today announced a fully integrated wireless network testing system
with CelPlan Technologies, Inc. The solution
allows RF engineers to conduct drive tests and evaluate network performance, map
coverage, or identify issues with
Radio Service (CBRS), a new network standard which leverages the previously
underutilized 3.5 GHz spectrum range for shared public use in commercial wireless
With the high-performance
Spectrum Analyzer as the scanning receiver and leading drive test software from
CelPlan, the solution offers the highest frequency range in the smallest form factor,
with 100 MHz real-time bandwidth. It enables engineers to simultaneously monitor
and record the 3.5 GHz band of interest as well as the surrounding spectrum
for accurate performance prediction, or playback and post-processing.
"The demand for new applications which use wireless communications is developing
at an incredible speed," said Dr. Jasvinder Obhi, VP, Product Management and Marketing,
ThinkRF. "To cope with this demand, CBRS-enabled spectrum sharing is a necessity,
bringing with it additional levels of complexity when it comes to test and measurement.
In combining CelPlan's drive test software with our spectrum analyzers, RF engineers
now have all the analysis, scanning and storage capabilities they need for CBRS
in one system."
"Test equipment is typically limited to a few specific bands," said Leonhard
Korowajczuk, CEO, CelPlan. "Each time a new band is added or wireless technology
changes, RF engineers have to purchase additional equipment at great expense. CelPlan's
solutions allow spectrum analysis and technology scanning to be done on the same
captured spectrum. Working with ThinkRF's software-defined spectrum analyzers, that
cover up to 40 GHz, allows us to deliver a versatile, cost-effective alternative,
which will be crucial to successful deployments of 5G and CBRS."
By integrating software-defined radio technologies from ThinkRF and spectrum
analysis tools from CelPlan, the solution offers:
- Built-in Spectrum Analyzer for signal and interference analysis
- I/Q data recording capability for post-analysis
- Deeper analysis and visualization tools for fading and MIMO analysis
- High performance receiver with automatic gain control, pre-select filtering
- and much more.
The solution is available from ThinkRF today. For more information, contact email@example.com.
