Cellular Network Scanner

Fast LTE, UMTS and GSM cellular network scanner

The cellXica EXSITE Network Scanner provides rapid parallel cell detection and system information decode of live GSM, UMTS and LTE cellular network cells.

Flexible configuration means the scanner can scan individual frequencies, multiple frequencies, frequency ranges, whole bands or any combination of these. Various other scanning options allow for a trade-off between scan complexity and scan time to reflect requirements and the radio environment. Results are made available immediately a cell has been detected or decoded.

The scanner is available in a range of hardware form-factors for different applications, including a self-contained battery-powered unit and modules for integration into third-party products.

Applications include network planning and monitoring, network coverage reporting, managed access, rogue cell detection and basestation development.

Key Features

  • Support for GSM, UMTS and LTE (FDD/TDD)
  • Parallel cell detect phase to identify potential cells
  • Parallel cell decode phase to confirm cell presence and decode system information
  • Full system information decode
  • Real-time output of results
  • Continual scan mode with GPS tracking
  • Support for all 3GPP bands up to 3 GHz
  • Flexible configuration to balance run time against scan requirements
