PCTEL Launches Its Fastest 5G NR And LTE Network Testing Solution

BLOOMINGDALE, ILL.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

PCTEL, Inc. (Nasdaq: PCTI) announced it is launching its fastest 5G/LTE network testing solution, the 5G NR-capable MXflex® scanning receiver. As operators expand their 5G footprint, they will need more powerful testing solutions to ensure a high-quality user experience across all their network technologies. The 5G MXflex enables operators to efficiently manage their sub-6 GHz wireless spectrum across 4G, 5G, and legacy wireless networks.

“PCTEL’s HBflex scanning receiver set a new standard for high-speed, portable, in-depth 5G mmWave testing. With the 5G MXflex, we’re doing the same for sub-6 GHz multi-technology testing,” said Rishi Bharadwaj, PCTEL’s COO. “The 5G MXflex enables operators to test all of their sub-6 GHz technologies with a single box, in a single walk or drive test.”

Features include:

  • Sub-6 GHz 5G NR signal decoding at up to 30 channels/second
  • Concurrent 5G NR, LTE 4x4 MIMO, and UMTS measurements with zero degradation in measurement speed
  • Simultaneous testing across all sub-6 GHz technologies and bands
  • Blind scan for automatic channel detection across all technologies
  • NB-IoT measurements

The 5G MXflex will be released in summer 2019. 5G testing capabilities will also be available as a field upgrade for existing MXflex scanning receivers.

PCTEL will demonstrate the 5G MXflex along with its complete portfolio of sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G network testing solutions June 12-13 at 5G World in London, booth 5G605 and June 11-12 at the In-Building Wireless Congress in Las Vegas, booth 205.
