WiMAX Testing Kit offers choice of 3 frequencies.

Press Release Summary:

Helping carriers optimize signals, WiMAX Testing Kit is suitable for 700 MHz, 2.5 GHz, and 3.5 GHz networks. Gator(TM) Class A stimulus transmitter provides CW radio beacon for proposed tower site, while YellowFrog(TM) 2 power meter validates RF output levels at transmitter antenna end. With Coyote(TM) dual-band modular receiver, users can perform drive-studies, walk-about, or in-building studies. Geo-coded, drive-study data can then be post-processed using Forecaster(TM) site survey mapping software.

BVS Showcases New WiMAX Pre-Deployment Kit at WCA 2008

METUCHEN, New Jersey. - April 21, 2008 - Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc. introduced an all-in-one WiMAX pre-deployment and testing kit solution for 700 MHz, 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz networks at the WCA 2008 show in Washington DC.

BVS announces the release and availability of a complete WiMAX pre-deployment testing solution that includes a stimulus test transmitter, modular test receiver, handheld power meter and a complete site survey drive-study PC software package. In addition, the WiMAX KIT components all fit into one ruggedized, hard transport Pelican® case. The WiMAX kit will be demonstrated as part of BVS' "Ready...Set...WiMAX!" campaign at booth #11 at this year's WCA 2008 in Washington DC running from April 21-23.

"The WCA show is an excellent venue to showcase our WiMAX pre-deployment testing kit. With rapid build-out of WiMAX networks globally, coupled with the recently auctioned off frequency blocks such as 700 MHz, BVS anticipates a wide opening in the market for turnkey, pre-deployment WiMAX testing and simulation solutions. Carmine Caferra, (NorthEastern Regional Sales Manager) will be present to provide an overview of our WiMAX Kit ", says Scott Schober, BVS President & CEO.

The WiMAX kit comes ready for engineers and installers right out of the box with a choice of three popular frequencies: 700 MHz, 2.5 GHz or 3.5 GHz. Berkeley's popular Gator(TM) Class A stimulus transmitter provides the CW radio beacon for the proposed tower site. The included YellowFrog(TM) 2 power meter validates precise RF output levels at the transmitter antenna end. Drive-studies, walk-about or in-building studies may be performed with the dual Coyote(TM) dual-band modular receiver. From there, geo-coded, drive-study data can be post-processed using Berkeley's Forecaster(TM) site survey mapping software. By performing WiMAX pre-deployment surveys, carriers can optimize signals by visualizing and preventing problems such as overlap, interference and network holes in coverage.
