SeeGull® flex Scanning Receivers

Precision Network Testing for LTE, 5G New Radio, Public Safety, and More

PCTEL’s HBflex™, IBflex®, and MXflex® scanning receivers are precision RF testing tools. They are used to verify and improve the performance of wireless networks worldwide, including 5G NR, LTE, and public safety technologies. PCTEL scanning receivers support a variety of network engineering activities, including spectrum clearing, baseline testing, model tuning, network planning, network commissioning, acceptance testing, competitive benchmarking, troubleshooting, and network optimization. They integrate easily with third-party software and are supported by PCTEL’s own Engage™, SeeHawk®, and SeeWave® tools.

Key Features

  • 5G NR and LTE-LAA measurements (HBflex™ and IBflex®)
  • LTE, NB-IoT, public safety, and LTE-M measurements
  • Wide mmWave (HBflex) and sub-6 GHz (all) band range
  • Field-upgradeable software-defined radio (SDR) architecture
  • Simultaneous testing on multiple technologies and bands

HBflex

The HBflex is a highly flexible test tool for mmWave and traditional wireless spectrum. With 5G NR testing capabilities on both mmWave and sub-6 GHz bands, it can be used to clear spectrum or test 5G NR alongside LTE, NB-IoT, LAA, Wi-Fi, and legacy 3G and 2G wireless network technologies.


IBflex®

 

The IBflex scanning receiver is designed for in-building and small cell testing, but it also has the performance and accuracy needed for traditional drive testing. Low power consumption and a hot-swap battery system make the IBflex scanner a convenient tool for a long day of walk testing or interference hunting.
