Many jurisdictions require building owners to verify public safety network coverage in order to acquire or maintain occupancy permits. Public safety network testing must satisfy stringent requirements.
PCTEL’s Public Safety Network Testing Solution combines SeeHawk® Touch software and the IBflex® scanning receiver to simplify the test planning and data collection process. The Solution’s in-building grid-based testing tool automatically generates reports that conform to most common public safety coverage requirements, as specified by NFPA and IFC standards.
Now available with P25 and LTE/FirstNet signal quality measurements, including P25 SINR, BER, Frame BER, and Network ID.
“We did the coverage testing in about 25% of the time planned. […] It really has changed the way we do business.”

Floor Reports with pass/fail results can be generated real-time during walk testing.
Building Reports summarize results over all floors for a single channel or all channels. PCTEL’s Solution offers pre-configured report formats for common public safety coverage and signal quality requirements, as specified by NFPA and IFC standards.
Reports can be formatted in Microsoft Word, which may reduce the time it takes to gain approval of building occupancy permits.
