The RANAdvisor Handheld is a compact solution with features like an intuitive, simple to operate graphical user interface. The unique parallel sequencer makes it rather straightforward to carry out tests, capture data and troubleshoot the network. In the device, a real-time key performance indicator engine provides feedback regarding any problems with minimum delay.

The handheld tester can be used in tandem with JDSU’s CellAdvisor base station analyser, enabling the user to verify that voice, data, and web services are all working correctly. The products that make up the RANAdvisor platform support receivers with up to eight different frequency bands. The accompanying software simultaneously measures and troubleshoots network RF coverage and service delivery across 2G, 3G and 4G technologies.

In addition to this product offering, Livingston now provides its customers with RANAdvisor TrueSite a very portable discrete Android-based solution optimised for testing within indoor environments. Controlled using Bluetooth, it eliminates the need for cabling, thus making it easy for operatives to configure and to run tests on. Supporting LTE, WCDMA, GSM, CDMA and EV-DO technologies, TrueSite is targeted at testing small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS) in indoor settings like airports, sports stadiums and shopping centres. The solution can be used as a single device held (such as Samsung’s Galaxy S3/S4) in the palm of the operative’s hand, or used in conjunction with a control tablet; in this case up to six devices can be utilised. Location data can be taken directly from the device’s built-in GPS. The remote start/stop function means that this solution can be activated/deactivated via SMS.
