Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing for Android- and PC-based Products

Zuchwil, February 05, 2014 - SwissQual - a Rohde & Schwarz Company - launches its Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing feature for both Android- and PC-based specialist equipment for wireless network service quality benchmarking and RF optimization. With such an optional feature, the independent Swiss supplier, headquartered in Zuchwil, fills a critical gap in testing and controlling the quality and coverage of wireless networks. Released together with the latest software for QualiPoc Android, SwissQual's Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing feature offers network operators and service providers an additional competitive solution for optimizing and troubleshooting networks quickly and efficiently.

SwissQual's exclusive Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing feature will initially be available in its Android-based QualiPoc product family, including the mobile solutions QualiPoc Android and QualiPoc Freerider II. In the near future, SwissQual's Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing feature will also be available in its PC-based product family Diversity.

"With Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing for Android, SwissQual is expanding its portfolio with a competitive breakthrough feature, which becomes available on the latest Cat.4 Android Smartphones. Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing enables network operators and service providers not only fast and cost-efficient on-site inspections to test and verify antenna range; also, unlike similar solutions who only can lock to a WCDMA or LTE Channel, SwissQual customers can benefit from the unique cell forcing feature by conducting active service and performance tests, including speech quality measurement for each cell sector at an antenna site."

"Advanced Channel/Cell Forcing empowers RF engineers to rapidly check an antenna's optimal positioning and coverage range, verifying whether the data of planning and deployment are in agreement. Furthermore, it facilitates daily optimization and troubleshooting tasks, e.g. resolving antenna cross-feeder installations", says John May, CEO of SwissQual.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue an...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

This year, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Joseph di Paolantonio from DataArchon, will be adding the numerous Transportation areas, from autonomous vehicles to “Uber for containers.” While IoT data in any one area of Transportation will have a huge impact in that area, combining sensor...
DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
