HBflex and IBflex are both based on PCTEL’s flexible software defined radio platform, enabling high performance measurements of 5G networks as well as LTE, public safety, NB-IoT, and other network technologies.
“5G networks will include a wide array of new bands and new technologies in a more complex RF environment,” said David Neumann, the company’s CEO. “PCTEL scanning receivers provide the accuracy, insight, and flexibility that operators will need to successfully manage their 5G networks and enable new use cases such as smart cities, fixed wireless access, and advanced IoT deployments.”
