Radiomonitoring and Radiolocation
The radiofrequency spectrum is a limited resource. For optimal use, it is monitored by government regulatory authorities and managed in accordance with ITU rules. Rohde & Schwarz provides the necessary radiomonitoring and radiolocation equipment. The armed forces require powerful radiomonitoring solutions to ensure situational awareness. Rohde & Schwarz technology helps them achieve information superiority.
Radiomonitoring equipment for regulatory authorities, homeland and external security and network operators
The need for mobile, wireless communications is constantly on the rise, but the usable frequency spectrum for radiocommunications and broadcasting is limited. As a result, it can be expensive when the market determines the price, e.g. in spectrum auctions. That is why it is important that regulatory authorities ensure proper technical and legal use of the spectrum. Network operators also have a vital interest in an error free performance optimized infrastructure and require technical means to ensure this service. Rohde & Schwarz provides the necessary equipment.
The company's receivers, direction finders, signal analyzers, antennas and customized systems have made Rohde & Schwarz a reliable partner for its customers for decades. Applications include sovereign spectrum management by regulatory authorities and technical monitoring of radio networks by their operators, securing critical infrastructures such as power plants, as well as radiomonitoring to ensure homeland and external security and satellite monitoring to provide authorized government agencies insight into satellite based voice and data communications.
In 2011, Rohde & Schwarz integrated ipoque GmbH, a company specializing in Internet traffic analysis and network monitoring, into the group of companies to enter a new market segment. ipoque is a leading manufacturer of software solutions for IP data stream analysis.
