Tektronix Inc. announced the addition of TD-SCDMA, the mobile telecommunications standard developed for China, as an option to its NetTek wireless RF field tester.

The company claims to be the first in the industry to provide TD-SCDMA RF field test and measurement capabilities in a handheld form, enabling network providers, network equipment manufacturers and contractors to easily diagnose TD-SCDMA node B transmitter problems and effectively manage the roll out of the new technology.

Rapid development of mobile services in China drive the need for a technology evolution so users can benefit from third generation services, with access to increasingly sophisticated applications and improved data rate. The company collaborated with mobile network operators and equipment manufacturers to provide understanding, test and control of networks and applications, enabling reduced business and technology risk associated with new standards development and deployment.

"The timely availability of accurate and cost effective solutions for base transceiver station maintenance and antenna test is an essential element of a successful TD-SCDMA roll out," said Wensheng Xu, senior technical manager of the product testing department at Datang Mobile, in a statement. "Tektronix' NetTek suite of RF field test applications will help us deliver the quality and reliability that our customers have come to expect from the new standard, leading to increased 3G services adoption and subscribers' satisfaction."

Tektronix' RF field test solution combines hand-held spectrum analyzer, GPS location information and internal mapping capabilities to create a field ready frequency clearing tool for spotting and dealing with erroneous RF signals. Additional capabilities include demodulation measurements for new technologies including W-CDMA and HSDPA.
