Improving user experience through optimised cellular broadband networks

Paul Boughton

The users of the latest mobile and smartphones demand good service from their mobile operators and this, ultimately, depends upon the performance of the cellular broadband network.

For service providers, drive and walk test solutions are essential in order to monitor and validate their quality of service by continuously capturing and analysing near real-time network data.

TEMS Investigation from Ascom Networking Testing is drive test software for troubleshooting, verification, optimisation and maintenance of wireless networks.

The Ascom software solution allows integrated data collection, real-time analysis and post-processing, eliminating the need for multiple software tools, reducing cost and saving time and effort for operations staff.

When configured with a PCTEL SeeGull EXflex scanning receiver, TEMS Investigation provides a complete drive test solution for mobile operators, service providers, network equipment manufacturers, consultants and regulatory bodies.

Electro Rent Europe can now provide a drive test solution comprised of a TEMS Investigation unit coupled with a PCTEL SeeGull EXflex scanning receiver.

The drive test solution is available through any of Electro Rent’s standard rental or leasing options, including rent-to-own.  With Electro Rent’s flexible equipment acquisition options, customers can access the equipment they need, when they need it and for as long as it is required.

The PCTEL SeeGull Exflex scanning receiver provides the flexibility to test mobile networks from 300MHz to 3.8GHz, supporting most major wireless technologies in a single unit. 

Ascom’s TEMS Investigation product together with the EXflex scanner is compatible with cellular and broadband technologies such as UMTS, LTE, CDMA, EVDO, WIMAX and TD-SCDMA.
