Andrew, a division of CommScope, Inc., introduces its indoor Invex.NxG wireless drive-test system that makes designing and testing indoor wireless coverage systems easier. The i.Send portable transmitter imitates wireless base station signals by broadcasting RF signals that allow for coverage measurements indoors. This transmitter can be used to verify optimal antenna positioning for indoor distributed antenna systems (DAS), and as a low-power source for testing the design and functionality of RF repeaters and base stations. This portable device offers >20 dBm of transmit power for up to four hours between battery charges, and it supports GSM, CDMA, UMTS and W-CDMA frequency bands with user-settable channel and message parameters.
