PCTEL Launches Compact, Future-Proof Gflex™ Scanning Receiver for 5G Network Testing and Government Applications
5G networks are evolving to support a growing user base, including critical use cases such as critical infrastructure and the industrial IoT. To ensure coverage and quality of service on public and private 5G networks, field testing is essential. Scanning receivers perform a key role in network testing systems, providing engineers with accurate, detailed data needed to efficiently plan, deploy, optimize, and benchmark 2G-5G networks. As mobile networks become more complex, engineers need a scanning receiver that can adapt to more demanding testing requirements.
The Gflex scanning receiver is more powerful, more portable, and more flexible than 5G and mmWave-capable scanners currently in the market. Until now, testing a single operator’s 2G-5G networks could require the use of multiple devices. The Gflex makes drive testing and walk testing more efficient, enabling testing of multiple operators’ networks with a single compact unit.
The Gflex is the first purpose-built walk and drive test scanner to support every 5G band as currently defined in the 3GPP release 17 specification, and the first capable of measuring the full 100 MHz 5G bandwidth. The software defined radio platform and expanded frequency range make the Gflex future-proof for 5G and beyond.
With its unique set of capabilities, the Gflex scanner is designed to support a wide array of government applications such as signal intelligence, coverage mapping, and interference detection.
“Gflex is a true game-changer for
