BVS Releases YellowFin for Handheld WiMAX Network Analysis
METUCHEN, New Jersey. — June 13, 2008 — Berkeley Varitronics Systems,
Inc., the leader in portable testing tools, is proud to unveil the world’s
first calibrated, demodulating WiMAX test receiver called YellowFin.
Berkeley’s newest WiMAX testing tool, YellowFin, is the only handheld WiMAX
testing solution capable of complete spectrum analysis as well as WiMAX
packet demodulation. The receiver sweeps 2.0 – 5.9 GHz to within +1.5 dB
accuracy and includes RSSI measurements for Cell-ID & segment, multipath
analysis and CINR (Carrier-to-Interference-plus-Noise-Ratios) on a preamble
basis. An internal 12-channel/satellite GPS receiver allows for geo-coded
WiMAX site surveys and drive-studies using optional mapping software. The
YellowFin’s GUI is Samsung’s latest Q1 Tablet UMPC that includes an Intel
core solo 1.3 GHz processor and 7″ WSVGA touch screen.
“We’re proud to be first-to-market with a calibrated, demodulating WiMAX
analyzer. YellowFin is the perfect solution for the rapid build-out of
WiMAX networks we are now seeing everywhere.”, says Scott Schober, BVS
President & CEO.
YellowFin is available now. Call 1-888-737-4287 or visit www.bvsystems.com
for a detailed white paper featuring YellowFin details.
YellowFin utilizes the Samsung Q1 Ultra tablet UMPC as an interface in
conjunction with Berkeley’s precision receiver technology for complete
spectrum analysis as well as WiMAX packet demodulation. The receiver sweeps
the 2.0 – 5.9 GHz spectrums to within +1.5 dB accuracy. YellowFin performs
full spectrum analysis allowing RF engineers to see the whole wireless
network picture. Features include power triggers, peak hold/search, markers
and multiple waveform traces. WiMAX packet analysis includes RSSI
measurements for ID cell & segment, multipath analysis and CINR
(Carrier-to-Interference-plus-Noise-Ratios) on a preamble basis. The
optional DF (Direction Finding) Antenna allows engineers to pinpoint
sources of WiMAX interference, rogue base stations and even nearby hackers.
