PCTEL Unveils SeeGull® EXflex Scanning Receiver at Mobile World Congress

BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--

PCTEL (News - Alert), Inc. (NASDAQ: PCTI), a leader in simplifying wireless and site solutions for private and public networks announced today at Mobile World Congress the release of the PCTEL SeeGull EXflex scanning receiver. Designed to simplify wireless network testing operations, the EXflex combines the trusted measurement performance and reliability of PCTEL's SeeGull EX platform with the capability to test all major wireless technologies and bands worldwide in a single cost-effective hardware unit.

Concurrently, PCTEL announced that Ascom (News - Alert) Network Testing, the leader in mobile network testing, optimization and benchmarking solutions, will be featuring the SeeGull® EXflex with its industry-leading TEMS™ mobile network drive test and walk test products.

Scanning receivers enable operators to maximize Quality of Service (QoS) and spectral efficiency of their networks, which increasingly span a wide array of network technologies and frequency bands. Now, operators and managed service providers can use a single EXflex scanning receiver to improve the efficiency of any wireless network worldwide, no matter how complex.

"The EXflex is fully field-upgradable using a software server, so our customers will be able to use a single hardware unit in every market, without purchasing additional hardware modules," said David Neumann, PCTEL's Vice President and General Manager, RF Solutions. "This will allow our customers to take full advantage of the SeeGull EX platform's field-proven ability to provide in-depth, accurate network intelligence over multiple years of operation at a competitive price," added Neumann.

"We are pleased to add the SeeGull EXflex as an option for our customers," said Kenneth Schönfeldt, Vice President, Test & Measurement Product Unit, Ascom Network Testing. "Operators face constant pressure to add capacity at the lowest possible operational cost. The SeeGull EXflex provides the ability to modify feature sets and frequency bands with a software server paradigm, which brings additional cost efficiencies to the network testing process," Schönfeldt added.

The EXflex will be fully integrated with Ascom's TEMS Investigatio™, the industry-leading air interface test tool. The EXflex supports baseline testing, network benchmarking, spectrum clearing, optimization testing, troubleshooting, and other applications on LTE (News - Alert), TD-LTE, EV-DO, CDMA, UMTS [WCDMA/HSPA(+)], TD-SCDMA, and GSM networks, with a frequency band range of 300MHz to 3.8 GHz.
