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.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
