Validating In-Building Wireless Coverage

June 26, 2020

The MS27101A-IBCM In-Building Coverage Mapper solution is a complete software and hardware package that allows easy coverage mapping of single or multi-story buildings. It overcomes a major challenge of doing an in-building coverage exercise as it does not require a GPS signal to do its testing. This give the solution the ability to provide coverage mapping of traditionally difficult areas such as stairwells, elevators, and other areas critical to public safety requirements.

The 5-step process to import building floor plan data, calibrate position, complete the walk-through, and analyze the results is simple and straightforward. Analysis results can be stored locally in the required Android device for security purposes or uploaded to the cloud for reporting convenience. The results can be displayed in 2D or 3D so engineers can visually inspect for weak coverage areas.

Several features are built into the solution for both convenience as well as time and cost savings. It is housed in a light, all-in-one backpack so technicians are not burdened with cumbersome equipment. Multiple frequencies can be scanned in a single walk-through, saving expensive manpower costs. It also has 4-hour battery life, giving it the ability to do a large multi-story building in a single charge. Finally, the hardware can support from 9 kHz to 6 GHz, which supports all current public safety, LTE, and Wi-Fi bands.
