BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 27, 2018--
PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq:PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical
TELecom solutions, demonstrated 5G mmWave spectrum testing on its
new flex scanning receiver at MWC 2018 (Mobile World Congress) in
Barcelona. The new flex scanning receiver can be used to clear
newly available mmWave spectrum, evaluate the performance of 5G trials,
and optimize coverage for planned commercial deployments of both fixed
wireless access (FWA) and mobile 5G networks.
“Scanning receivers provide precise field measurements that are
essential for ensuring wireless network performance,” said Jeff Miller,
Senior Vice President and GM, RF Solutions. “With the addition of mmWave
band range, our flex scanning receivers are ready to support the
rapidly evolving 5G ecosystem.”
PCTEL’s flex scanning receivers feature radio technology which
will easily adapt to new 5G technologies, including standards from
Verizon and the 3GPP. PCTEL’s new scanning receiver uses a downconverter
to support mmWave spectrum. It enables simultaneous testing of both
mmWave and traditional cellular spectrum, including 2G, 3G, and 4G
PCTEL will demonstrate its mmWave scanning receiver and other test and
measurement solutions at MWC in Meeting Room 6047MR, Hall #6.
