RF DRIVE TEST

Build Better Wireless Networks with thinkRF

Capture multiple bands in a single RF drive test without wasting time and resources with software-defined spectrum analysis solutions from thinkRF.

Cost Effective & Efficient RF Drive Test

Deploy new wireless networks, optimize existing infrastructure, and locate disruptive RF interference with the thinkRF – RF Drive Test System. Designed for RF Engineers at mobile operators and wireless communication infrastructure providers, the thinkRF RF Drive Test System is a portable wireless network testing solution designed to conduct in-depth analysis of spectrum availability, evaluate and optimize network performance, and characterize RF propagation for better design.

Designed to be cost-effective, efficient and portable, the thinkRF RF Drive Test System allows users to use the same hardware for both spectrum analysis and wireless technology scanning. Multiband support allows you to simultaneously monitor the band of interest and the surrounding spectrum.

RF Drive Test

Multiband Analysis

Unlike traditional RF drive test solutions and scanning receivers which are limited to a few specific bands, thinkRF Real-Time Spectrum Analyzers collect and process multiband spectrum from 9 kHz to 40 GHz at up to 100 MHz real-time bandwidth. Users can simultaneously monitor and record the band of interest as well as the surrounding spectrum for accurate performance prediction, or playback and post-processing.

Leading RF Drive Test Software

CelPlan CellWireless Software captures and stores multiband IQ spectrum meaning processing and analysis can be done in real-time or recorded for post-analysis. The software provides unprecedented detail, resolution, and visualization capabilities with support for various standards including 4G, 5G, LTE  and Citizens Broadcast Radio Service (CBRS).

Cost-Effective & Efficient RF Drive Test

Avoid costly hardware purchases when analyzing new bands and reduce the amount of equipment required for modern RF drive test applications. The fully integrated RF Drive Test System allows RF Engineers at mobile operators and wireless communication infrastructure providers to use the same hardware for both spectrum analysis and wireless technology scanning. Software can easily be upgraded to new standards or bands through updates, while the modular approach further reduces costs for operators.

Time and Location Measurements

The thinkRF R5750 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer with GNSS included an embedded GPS for time and location data of measurements. Record up to 25 measurements per second for incredibly detailed data for coverage mapping, network performance analysis, and RF interference hunting applications.
