PCTEL Benchmarks Wireless Networks at DAS and Small Cell Congress Europe

By Business Wire News


PCTEL, Inc. (NASDAQ:PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical Telecom solutions, benchmarked wireless networks at the DAS and Small Cells Congress Europe conference venue. During the conference, held December 8-10 in Munich, Germany, PCTEL’s Network Engineering Services (NES) group will display network engineering services reports based on the collected baseline data. PCTEL’s customers have used similar reports to maximize the effectiveness of network designs and configurations on thousands of in-building projects.

“Over the past five years, NES has established robust protocols for collecting, analyzing, and reporting in-building network performance data,” said Bob Joslin, PCTEL’s Vice President and General Manager, Network Engineering Services. “For this marquee venue, we walk-tested the network on Monday and – in a single day – benchmarked and reported on the network performance. Our global customers – carriers, neutral host providers, infrastructure vendors, and system integrators – leverage these data and reports to improve network service levels,” added Joslin.

PCTEL uses its own SeeGull® IBflex® scanning receiver connected via Bluetooth® to a tablet running SeeHawk® Touch data collection software to collect the data. The engineers rely upon post-processing tools to acquire a detailed understanding of the network, including iBwave’s analytic capabilities. In certain situations, PCTEL leverages its SeeHawk™ Analytics for cloud-based processing.

The reports will be displayed at Booth 19 on December 9 and 10, along with PCTEL’s network testing equipment and its VenU® PIM160 DAS Antenna portfolio. Attendees also have the opportunity to learn more about planning, architecting, designing, and testing DAS and small cell networks at PCTEL’s joint workshop with iBwave. The session is scheduled for December 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. It will feature live demonstrations of SeeHawk Touch, iBwave Mobile Planner, and iBwave Mobile Note. Session participants will learn how an integrated workflow using PCTEL and iBwave software makes network planning and optimization more efficient.
