Xi Drive Test
X-TEL's Drive Test Units are modular, fully expandable field measurement tools designed for testing the air interface of wireless networks. Our Drive Test platform is the first collection system of its kind, employing a flexible and expanding architecture that's capable of simultaneously supporting many different wireless standards, including WCDMA/HSDPA, GSM/EDGE, CDMA EV-DO, iDEN, WiMax and others.
Each unit provides powerful software support for multiple devices and future expansion. X-TEL’s Xi plug and play platform allows users to easily modify the hardware and software configuration based on the specific test applications.
Each Xi unit can easily grow from a single-phone data collection tool to a full-service benchmarking system. Combined with the Xi Report Generator, the platform makes network-quality benchmarking a routine part of everyday data collection and analysis.
Each Xi system supports both indoor and drive test modes of operation. Xi is actually a combination in-building data collection and vehicle data collection system, integrating full drive test functionality with the most feature-rich in-building data collection software currently available.
Real Time Display
X-TEL's real-time displays make it easier than ever to identify network problems and their causes, with advanced capabilities designed to rapidly isolate problem areas. Our customizable displays of tables, graphs, and charts present critical engineering and network performance data while a live map shows vehicle position, base station proximity, and neighbor sites, as well as a host of other user-configurable display options.
Designed for maximum flexibility, X-TEL's easy-to-operate drive test tools let you specify the parameters that interest you most. With just the click of a button, you can configure the real-time map, tables, graphs, and charts to display different phone and cell site attributes, allowing you to make critical decisions faster. You can also preprogram various call and data session scenarios to minimize user involvement during testing. Whenever anomalies are detected, recorded audio alarms alert you to the specific problem.
The unit also allows the user to play back data at a later time. The maps, graphs, charts, and audible alarms function just as they do during a live drive test, but you can adjust the speed and jump forward or backward to specific sections of the playback file.
What's more, one of the software's most useful applications is its ability to link all data to your existing network databases. With this capability, find out which base station is serving you, see what neighbor sites are around you, and intuitively identify missing neighbor sites and poor service areas more quickly than ever before.
