Rohde & Schwarz has launched the R&S TSMW, a universal mobile radio scanner that features two integrated receivers and includes Wimax functionality.
The two receivers allow faster operation than solutions that use mobile phones with test functionality, the company said.
At the same time, the scanner delivers accurate results across the entire high measurement bandwidth because individual blocks can be filtered out by using adaptive preselection.
This allows network operators to perform drive tests for setting up and optimizing Wimax networks, according to Rohde and Schwarz.
The R&S TSMW's platform is suitable for all technologies with bandwidths up to 20 MHz and can be expanded for current and future standards via software options, the company said.
