Deploy Wireless Networks with thinkRF

Design and build the future of wireless communications technologies and research high frequency, wideband, and complex waveforms well above 6 GHz.

High Speed, High Bandwidth & Reliable Wireless Networks

The speed at which the wireless spectrum environment is changing is causing new challenges for telecommunication companies planning, deploying, optimizing, and managing wireless infrastructure and networks. Today’s spectrum is dense, crowded, and complex, with multiple signal standards, high frequency waveforms, and the constant risk of RF interference. As the world increases its dependence on connectivity, RF Engineers at telecom service providers need to maintain high speed, high bandwidth, and reliable wireless networks.

Patented software-defined spectrum analysis platforms from thinkRF are designed and built for telecom deployment, testing, and RF optimization. Our high frequency, high bandwidth platforms will help you deploy new wireless signal standards such as 5G, troubleshoot issues in the field, conduct mobile and drive testing, optimize networks to ensure coverage in complex environments, and mitigate the risk of disruptive interference.

thinkRF Telecom Planning, Optimization & Management Applications

CelPlan is a leading provider of radio frequency planning & optimization tools, value-added consulting, engineering, and training services to the wireless industry.

The LS OBSERVER solution, which leverages the thinkRF R5550 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer for advanced spectrum analysis capabilities, can be used for a variety of spectrum monitoring applications.

The LS OBSERVER system consists of various Remote Monitoring Units (RMUs), one or more Central Control Units, and software for detailed measurement data analysis and statistics. Mobile, portable, transportable, fixed and airborne monitoring units are available. The LS OBSERVER system, which is built upon and includes the thinkRF R5550 Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer is available from LS telcom.

  • Network design, planning, implementation and optimization
  • Maximizing spectrum inventory and broadcast coverage optimization
  • Performing drive tests to locate the source of interference and to rapidly identify whether the real and planned coverage correspond, enabling you to adjust your network if needed
  • Big data analysis and comparison to support spectrum inventory, make evidence-based spectrum policy decisions, and retrieve usage information
  • Central monitoring software that controls and analyzes the data from all the monitoring units
  • Automatic violation detection software to alert the operator when the measured signal strength does not correspond to the reference signal strength at a given location
  • Unique data compression and storage capacity directly inside the measuring units
