A hand-held spectrum analyzer series (Spectrum Compact) coupled with NEON Signal Mapper software delivers real-time geo-referenced signal data that can be visualized both locally by the user and remotely on a 3D display.
This new in-building signal testing solution leverages the Spectrum Compact’s exceptional measurement accuracy and industry-leading noise floor (-128 dB) to provide a complete picture of the RF environment. First responders heading anywhere in a building will have the confidence of not losing communications during an emergency response in radio-signal-verified buildings.
SAF’s smartphone-sized Spectrum Compact is now integrated with the TRX’s body-worn NEON Tracking Unit to provide an economical, simple, and accurate signal mapping and verification solution called SAF Signal Mapper. RF engineers and technicians can comfortably and discreetly map the signal coverage throughout an entire building including stairwells, elevators, and difficult-to-access areas. With the powerful, user-friendly NEON Command software, users can create the coverage map for buildings even when no drawings or cad files exist!
For public safety agencies with resource and budget constraints, the SAF-TRX Signal Mapper solution is the go-to solution. Public Safety agencies or certification service companies new to real-world RF testing now have the tools to quickly get up to speed verifying in-building signal coverage.
Janis Bergs, President of SAF North America, said, “Reliable signal coverage for first responders is a matter of life and death. SAF is excited to partner with TRX Systems to provide a solution to verify in-building public safety signal strength. Spectrum Compact paired with the innovative TRX Neon Signal Mapper is the smallest, most reliable, and cost-effective toolset available to public safety organizations. Our solution verifies police, fire, and EMS personnel have the signal coverage they need when it matters most.”
NEON Signal Mapper is a 3D in-building coverage mapping solution that delivers 3D mapping, tracking, and visualization where GPS is unreliable. Signal Mapper leverages TRX’s patented NEON Location Service which uses inertial sensor fusion, user corrections, and map constraints to enable real-time 3D location and tracking within buildings, stadiums, subways, dense urban areas, and any region where GPS is unavailable.
The authority having jurisdiction has the responsibility to determine which buildings fall under NFPA Annex O and must use in-house expertise or find an outside expert. Companies such as SAF offer RF testing tools to analyze, design, and optimize wireless networks.
