Boeing Subsidiary Unveils Tool to Improve Testing of Wireless Networks
- Digital Receiver Technology's device quickly identifies areas in need of network upgrades
Boeing [NYSE: BA] subsidiary Digital Receiver Technology Inc. (DRT) today debuted an easier, faster way for wireless carriers and infrastructure providers to assess their cellular network and identify areas where upgrades may be required.
Unveiled during the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the pocket-sized DRT4311B could ultimately help increase network performance and customer satisfaction.
"The unit's Software Defined Radio architecture and wideband receiver allow operators to use the same device to measure multiple frequency bands without changing hardware -- increasing their productivity and reducing cost," said Stephen Mazzo, president of DRT. "The platform's low power consumption and lightweight design make it even more affordable and adaptable."
The DRT4311B can simultaneously scan between 2G, 3G and 4G networks with a wireless control application that is compatible with any Android device.
