Brief Description

The R&S®TSMQ Radio Network Analyzer provides unmatched capabilities for network analysis and optimization. The distinctive, compact-sized R&S®TSMQ allows WCDMA PN scanning, GSM network scanning, and CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO PN scanning simultaneously and with unsurpassed performance. In addition, analog RF power level measurements (CW) are supported. The wideband RF frontend offers maximum measuring flexibility in all frequency bands irrespective of the standard involved.

In combination with the R&S®ROMES software, the R&S®TSMQ is a powerful instrument for cellular network optimization. Neighborhood analysis is now possible with just one receiver. Plus, the R&S®TSMQ can measure two or three technologies in parallel and monitor other networks during a single drive test. Thus, network operators are always aware of the quality of their entire network as well as of the quality of competitor networks.

The analyzer's low weight and low power consumption allow easy indoor use as a backpack system with a battery power supply. The mobile network characteristics of pedestrian malls, train stations, or shopping centers can be detected at the same quality as with drive-test vehicles.
