Intelligent Automatic Drive Test Equipment A5.Pilot RCU 2.0 Brochure V10.12
A5.Pilot Watcher Brochure V5.3

Overview

Pilot RCU is an autonomous data collection equipment, mainly used for long term network quality monitoring and services verification. It is a multi-technology solution that can be configured according to the preferred technology combinations, supporting 8 modules for data collection and 1 for transmission. This means simultaneous testing of 2G/3G/4G networks or four independent internal MOS tests.

Pilot RCU is able to test and transmit data continuously without any on-site intervention. It can be deployed in any vehicle for outdoor test and monitoring, or mounted in static locations e.g. hotspots or in-building. Pilot RCU's configuration, test services, data collection and upload methods are defined by users, via simple web client setup screens (from Pilot Fleet Unify). Collected data is remotely uploaded to the Pilot Fleet Unify server for real-time monitoring and statistical analysis that could be done by users with web access.

Test data is stored locally in the Pilot RCU and uploaded to a central database for immediate and subsequent processing. Vital performance parameters can be accessed real-time through the Pilot Fleet Unify's web client, enabling immediate visualization of system status.

Main Product Features

Portable and autonomous data measurement probe
Pilot RCU is designed with flexible and interchangeable multi-technology test modules for unsupervised autonomous data collection. The portable and compact form factor allows the product to be easily deploy for outdoor and indoor (e.g. stationary hotspots) testing.
Remote configuration and administration

Pilot RCU is the autonomous remote test and measurement probes offered with the Pilot Fleet Unify system. Test configuration, customized regional test, data upload scheduling, probe administration and status monitoring can be remotely done through Pilot Fleet Unify. All collected data will be remotely uploaded to the Pilot Fleet Unify system for storage, automatic processing, analysis and reporting.

LTE 2CC CA test
Pilot RCU 2.0 V10.11 supports LTE 2CC (2 component carriers) CA test.

GPS with Inertial Navigation System
Pilot RCU 2.0 provides a GPS solution with Inertial Navigation System to support service test in the tunnel or densely populated with high-rise buildings' scenarios. This may facilitate the automatic pinpointing on the GPS measurement plot when the GPS signal is lost or very poor.

VoLTE and MOS testing

Pilot RCU 2.0 supports VoLTE MOS voice quality measurement with POLQA, and normal VoLTE test. The tests can be conducted with the R1528 and R1528A test modules. The POLQA MOS measurement uses 45KHz sampling rate.

The traditional CS voice quality measurement with PESQ MOS can also be supported by the Pilot RCU 2.0.

Multiple test modules can be configured to conduct POLQA or PESQ benchmarking test, as well as a combination of concurrent voice and data services testing. This provides a wide range of test configuration flexibility with the 8 test modules supported by the Pilot RCU.

Network and Cell Control for Service test
The control functionality allows the test module to be locked on an assigned Radio Access Technology (RAT) for test and measurement on the dedicated RAT.

Powerful Data Processing
Up-to 8 channels LTE data service test can be done simultaneously with the quadcore Pilot RCU.

Main Use cases

Remote and Unattended Long Term Monitoring
Troubleshooting network performance and offered services on a large scale network requires a widely distributed monitoring system. Pilot RCU (together with the Pilot Fleet Unify system) can be easily deploy in private or public transport vehicles for 24/7 unattended data collection and monitoring. Stationary hot spot areas are also suitable for deployment of such probes. Its compact and non-intrusive design allow the probe to be positioned in strategic locations unnoticed. It is designed for long term monitoring and data collection, whereby network trending data is crucial to determine key network optimization activities or future network improvement investments .
Network and Services Performance Benchmarking
Tests can be easily configured either for radio access technology, network performance, services quality benchmarking purposes. The possibility to cascade the Pilot RCU's probes provides greater flexibility to extend the benchmarking potential. Collected data can be easily processed, analysed and use to produce the necessary KPI and statistical benchmarking reporting with Pilot Fleet Unify.
Limited Operation Resources or Budget
Regular network monitoring over long duration and wide network distribution area means the need to have full time resources to execute the project for testing, data collection, post processing and reporting. Pilot RCU with Pilot Fleet Unify system are designed to automate all such activities (remotely) with very little human intervention, therefore negating the needs for full time resources. This will free up the available resources for other more critical projects, and reduce the operation expenses in the long run.
Network Features and Services Verification
Having Pilot RCU remote test probe roaming around in vehicles over wide network coverage area or stationed at strategic hotspots, provides such important data store for network operators on the network and services performance. Network features upgrade, or newly introduced services requires constant monitoring over long duration especially when the network is loaded with real traffic. This presents the network operator with important trending data, not only for verification and troubleshooting purposes, but also on making key decisions for future investments.

Supplementary Product Options

Pilot Watcher
Pilot Watcher is a software based solution that is used to locally monitor the performance and measurement of DingLi remote measurement equipment’s test modules. Pilot Watcher runs on an Android tablet and can be connected to a Pilot RCU or Pilot Scout through WiFi (via a device hotspot) for real-time service test monitoring. Users may monitor the onsite test modules’ parameters, events, MOS score, alarms, GPS-based test routes, test plans, etc., and reboot the Pilot RCU device through Pilot Watcher.

Pilot Watcher can be connected to only one test equipment for monitoring at one time.
