With the explosion in the growth of wireless-enabled devices (e.g., LoRA, NBIoT, 5G, WiFi6), many organizations are looking for cost-effective tools to monitor the health and security of their wireless networks.
For those in the military and naval fleets, radio frequency (RF) emissions from radar and communications systems have the potential to cause catastrophic damage to operations and maintenance personnel, ordinance and fuels, and associated equipment. Similarly, as hobbyist and commercial drones become ever cheaper and more ubiquitous, security and government officials are stepping up efforts to detect the presence of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in places where they don’t belong.
Traditional radio monitoring systems, while comprehensive in their capabilities, suffer from high system costs and require significant resources to manage. Although there are many low-cost software-defined receivers (SDR) on the market, most suffer from common technical limitations. A smarter, more flexible approach is needed for supporting a combination of field surveying and deployed spectrum monitoring.
In this webinar, Tektronix Product Manager Dylan Stinson will review technologies for RF sensing, providing an overview of the limitations and advantages of traditional monitoring receivers, low-cost SDRs, and real-time spectrum analyzers.
Join this webinar to learn about how each of these technologies address the three main challenges in spectrum monitoring:
