PCTEL Will Demonstrate Augmented Reality Interference Hunting at MWC

February 22, 2018

BLOOMINGDALE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 22, 2018-- PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI), a leader in Performance Critical TELecom solutions, announced today that it will demonstrate its concept for an augmented reality SeeWave® interference locating system at MWC 2018 (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona. SeeWave is a handheld interference hunting tool, used by wireless operators to track down unwanted signals that harm network performance. MWC attendees will have the opportunity to use SeeWave in conjunction with a Microsoft HoloLens to visualize spectrum and identify potential sources of interference in the real world.

“Efficient interference hunting is critical as operators continue to add spectrum and maximize capacity from existing frequency bands using both 4G and 5G technologies,” said Jeff Miller, Senior Vice President and GM, RF Solutions. “PCTEL’s concept for an augmented reality based interference detection system represents the future of test and measurement. It is made possible by SeeWave’s new user interface for Android™ tablets, which will make it faster and easier than ever to track down interference at its source using PCTEL’s flex scanning receivers,” added Miller.

“At PCTEL, we’re excited about the ways augmented reality can help our customers improve wireless network performance,” said David Neumann, PCTEL’s CEO. “We take this same customer driven approach to innovation on all of our products, whether we’re developing a test and measurement solution for public safety or integrating a complex embedded antenna system for the Industrial Internet of Things.”
