GREENBELT, Md. (PRWEB) October 15, 2020
TRX Systems, developer of NEON® Indoor Location Solutions, and VIAVI Solutions, a global leader in network test, monitoring and assurance solutions, announce the integration of TRX’s NEON Signal Mapper with VIAVI CellAdvisor® 5G and OneAdvisor-800 real-time spectrum analyzers providing an automated solution that simplifies and dramatically reduces the time required for 4G-LTE and 5G-NR cellular coverage testing. The availability of this new combined solution provides automatic geo-referencing and cloud data storage with innovative 3D visualization and reporting to validate 4G and 5G coverage and performance.
VIAVI CellAdvisor 5G and OneAdvisor-800 are innovative, comprehensive, and easy-to-use base station analyzers that are ideal field-portable solutions to validate and deploy 5G radio access networks. The combination of real-time spectrum analysis and 5G beam analysis, as well as the ability to test fiber, coax, and air interfaces, makes the CellAdvisor 5G and OneAdvisor-800 the most versatile cell site test solutions available. A short demonstration of the TRX-VIAVI CellAdvisor integrated solution can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/kQzs_5A5qQc
NEON Signal Mapper is a coverage mapping solution that delivers 3D mapping, tracking, and visualization for RF signals – it automatically geo-references signal data in 3D, stores it in the NEON Cloud, and provides 3D visualization and reporting. Signal Mapper leverages TRX’s patented NEON® Location Service, which uses inertial sensor fusion, user corrections, and map constraints to enable real-time 3D location and tracking within buildings, stadiums, subways, dense urban areas, and any region where GPS is unavailable.
This new NEON Signal Mapper integration adds valuable 4G-LTE and 5G-NR capabilities to the existing TRX-VIAVI LMR solutions previously introduced to the market that enabled the seamless geo-referencing and 3D visualization of multiple, simultaneous LMR measurements from the 3550R and the 8800SX radio test sets. TRX and VIAVI continue to enhance these existing Signal Mapper solutions with new features and capabilities, including grid mapping that dramatically simplifies mandated compliance testing, updated UIs for easier setup and configuration, and outdoor drive testing support, as well as performance enhancements that speed up measurements and allow for faster multi-channel coverage testing.
“CellAdvisor 5G was the first field-portable base station analyzer in the market that enabled RF engineers to test both 4G and 5G RF issues with one easy-to-use solution,” said Jim Neuens, Marketing Director at VIAVI. “The integration with NEON Signal Mapper now makes it just as easy to test 4G and 5G performance indoors without GPS as it is outdoors” Neuens added.
About TRX Systems
TRX Systems is the developer of NEON GPS-denied location solutions, delivering location, mapping, and proximity solutions where GPS is not available or is unreliable including indoors, underground, in dense urban areas, and where GPS is jammed or erroneous. NEON delivers ubiquitous, low-cost, GPS-denied location through the use of advanced sensor fusion, ranging, and patented dynamic mapping algorithms. NEON location technology provides the foundation for a number of commercial applications, including NEON Personnel Tracker and NEON Signal Mapper.
TRX's indoor location software development has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the U.S. Army, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
