PCTEL Launches SeeHawk to Detect and Mitigate High-Risk Interferences
FREMONT, CA: PCTEL, a company specializing in Performance Critical Telecom Solutions announced its new SeeHawk Analytics for managing and reducing the effects of interference in wireless networks. The product identifies interference that is likely to go undetected by applying a set of algorithms to the network data.
SeeHawk is built on a big data platform and it processes drive test data from PCTEL’s IBflex and MXflex scanning receivers in the cloud. It is helpful for carriers, infrastructure vendors and neutral host operators as they can apply SeeHawk Analytics to existing data for observing and identifying interference hot spots. The advanced analytics employed by SeeHawk can zoom in to the level of a parking spot— interference that can reduce the network capacity by half.
SeeHawk Analytics integrates multiple sources of network, geodetic (map-based), and subscriber data into a single efficient solution. It offers latest tool options that tend to improve the efficiency of comprehensive neighbor list management, PN/PCI Planning and Conflict resolution and Parameter Auditing. It also streamlines the processes that involve field testing including network acceptance, drive testing and data post-processing.
According to Sumeet Paul CIO and GM, Analytics and Services for PCTEL’s RF solutions, Interference mitigation is one of the major challenges that network operators deal on a regular basis. “The existing processes for detecting and locating interference involve constant data collection, manual review of network data, and inconsistent application of network knowledge to resolving problems,” says Sumeet. “SeeHawk Analytics establishes network performance engineering rules and translates those rules into sophisticated algorithms for detecting and locating interference” he adds.
As part of its engineering services PCTEL will offer interference management to carriers, hosts and vendors. Conforming to the Service Level Agreement (SLA) the company will benchmark interference levels, create plans to mitigate interference and test its effectiveness at implementation level. It also makes an assessment of the radiation safety levels based on Exposure Index (EI).
