PCTEL Accelerates Path to 5G with Enhanced Test Tools and CBRS Antennas

February 25, 2019

BARCELONA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 25, 2019-- PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced at Mobile World Congress an expanded line of CBRS antennas and enhanced testing capabilities to accelerate the deployment of 5G networks.

  • PCTEL’s HBflex™ and IBflex® scanning receivers are trusted by tier-1 operators to test 5G networks on sub-6 GHz and mmWave spectrum worldwide. The HBflex was used to verify coverage on one of the world’s first live 5G mmWave networks. PCTEL’s new 5G Blind Scan feature simplifies testing and saves time by automatically detecting the network’s center frequency.
  • PCTEL’s CBRS antennas support dense indoor and outdoor small cell deployments worldwide. New omnidirectional and directional panel antennas will provide optimized 4x4 MIMO performance to enable Gigabit LTE or 5G technologies using the same network infrastructure.

“PCTEL’s 5G and CBRS offerings demonstrate our leadership in wireless technology development that meets the requirements of our customers, including major network equipment OEMs, network operators, and test vendors,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, PCTEL’s COO. “Customers have noted that our HBflex scanning receiver combines fast measurement rates with the smallest form factor available in a mmWave scanning receiver,” added Bharadwaj.

PCTEL will be showing its CBRS antenna portfolio and 5G testing tools by appointment at Mobile World Congress Barcelona, Feb. 25-28.
