September 12, 2018
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 12, 2018--
PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical
TELecom solutions, unveiled precision scanning receivers for
testing 5G networks today at Mobile World Congress Americas. The new HBflex™
scanning receiver provides 5G NR measurements on both mmWave and sub-6
GHz spectrum. 5G NR testing capabilities are also available on PCTEL’s
flagship IBflex® scanning receiver for sub-6 GHz bands.
PCTEL’s 5G test tools will enable operators to efficiently clear new
spectrum and roll out 5G networks worldwide while maintaining or
upgrading existing network technologies. HBflex and IBflex
are both based on PCTEL’s flexible software defined radio platform,
enabling high performance measurements of 5G networks as well as LTE,
public safety, NB-IoT, and other network technologies.
“5G networks will include a wide array of new bands and new technologies
in a more complex RF environment,” said David Neumann, the company’s
CEO. “PCTEL scanning receivers provide the accuracy, insight, and
flexibility that operators will need to successfully manage their 5G
networks and enable new use cases such as smart cities, fixed wireless
access, and advanced IoT deployments.”
PCTEL will demonstrate the HBflex scanning receiver September
12-14 at Mobile World Congress Americas in Los Angeles, booth S.2064.
HBflex and IBflex scanning receivers with 5G testing
capabilities are available to order now. Upgrade paths are available for
customers with existing IBflex scanning receivers.
