A Total End-to-End Solution
Motorola's wireless
broadband portfolio offers an
array of access and backhaul
technologies for complete
end-to-end municipal
wireless initiatives. Motorola
Point-to-Multipoint and
Point-to-Point solutions can
provide reliable, high-capacity
Internet backhaul links to
Motorola mesh networks.
BroadbandPlanner and
BroadbandScanner enable
detailed network planning
and optimization capabilities.
SPECIFICATION SHEET
BroadbandScanner
Automate Your Mesh and PMP Network Measurement Process
Motorola's BroadbandScanner software enables the validation of mesh and point to
multi-point networks through an intuitive, GPS-driven interface that eliminates the
need for deep RF expertise.
Manual verifi cation of mesh and point-to-multipoint
networks is costly and time-consuming. Early trial
deployment teams have struggled to compile
information using paper maps, custom spread-
sheets, and manual cut-and-paste between GIS
applications, crude measurement tools, and
ad-hoc logs. However, today's large, mature and
complex projects require automated, hardware-
independent validation of Quality of Service (QoS)
and performance.
BroadbandScanner equips network integrators and
post-deployment teams with a money-saving,
hardware-independent solution for measuring and
visualizing network performance. BroadbandScanner
can also be used in conjunction with Broadband-
Planner, Motorola's comprehensive software
solution for designing and verifying wireless mesh
and point-to-multipoint networks. To ensure
accuracy and usability, BroadbandScanner leverages
GIS maps for recording, displaying, and storing vital
network information. The software's visualization
capability displays the information integrators need
to pinpoint and validate critical QoS issues such as
wireless coverage and data throughput.
With BroadbandScanner, the measurement process
starts by importing the GIS terrain and map of the
area. Using "drive test" mode, the user records live
measurements by acquiring GPS located measurement
data from a wireless LAN card or an attached spectrum
analyzer. As measurement data accumulates,
BroadbandScanner adds this information in real-time
to the site map. Users then visualize the results as
RSSI (Received Signal Strength Intensity), SIR (Signal
to Interference Ratio), SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio), and
throughput data rate.
Identify Pre-Deployment RF Interference Issues and
Mounting Point Locations
Mesh access points (APs) require a high level of Signal
to Noise Ratio (SNR) to maintain reliable service.
BroadbandScanner contains a RF monitoring feature
that design planners can use to measure wireless
interference. When confi gured with an approved
LAN card and spectrum analyzer or a PMP subscriber
module, BroadbandScanner empowers integrators
with time and money-saving capabilities for identifying
noise-fl oor concerns that could impact the QoS – before
deploying a single piece of hardware.
Identifying AP mounting locations is another crucial
design planning task. While performing interference
testing or during a separate drive test, the team can
use BroadbandScanner to specify precise mounting
locations. When a candidate site is identifi ed, a simple
mouse click adds the GPS-accurate AP mounting
location to the site map.
Measure and Validate Post-Deployment QoS
BroadbandScanner provides a solution to help guarantee
that the deployed network achieves coverage and
capacity requirements detailed within the project
contract – prior to customer hand-off. This enables
network integrators to differentiate their solution and
deliver a high performance wireless broadband network
that runs the most demanding data, video and voice
applications, in the most challenging environments.
