DingLi Corp Ltd cooperates with Rohde & Schwarz (referred as R&S for remaining of this article) to include the support of R&S's TSME scanner functionality as part of DingLi's NB-IoT radio access network test and measurement solution.  

This integration is part of Pilot Pioneer 10.2 offering, which also introduces the support of various NB-IoT sensors or test modules base measurements (apart from multiple commercial test devices), for indoor or outdoor field test. This strengthens DingLi's Pilot Pioneer product positioning with multi-technology radio access network measurement support, powerful and accurate data collection and analysis capability.

● NB-IoT radio access network: Overlapping Coverage, Overshooting Coverage, Poor Coverage, Co-channel Interference, IRAT interference, Illegal Signal Interference.

● NB-IoT test modules: Cell reselection is available only during idle mode, which affects the modules' accuracy and continuous coverage measurement capability.

 

 

 

Scanner performance: High accuracy and high sensitivity, stable performance, high speed scan;  

Technology: Verified and recognized by China Mobile Research Institute;  

Statistics function: Powerful statistics function satisfies the drive test technology standards specified by various operators  

Analysis function: Automatic analysis, one-click smart analysis

● Supports TopN scanning

● TopN scanning: supports blind scan for various frequencies, and scan for dedicated cells

● Complete test data: EARFCN, PCI, NPSS-RP/RQ/RSSI,NSSS-RP/RQ/RSSI

● UserList Scanning: exports complete test data, which include the data for EARFCN, PCI, NPSS RP/RQ/RSSI, NSSS RP/RQ/RSSI

● Able to identify PCI

● Decode intra-frequency and inter-frequency neighbor cell list parameters

● Scan the blind cell (with dedicated frequencies) broadcast , and the locked cell (with dedicated frequencies) broadcast.

● MIB/SIB1 demodulation function: bandwidth (MIB), antenna count, TraceArea and Cell ID(SIB1)

● Channel demodulation for NRS, NPSS, NSSS, etc., calculating various channel power.
