The option enables network providers, network equipment manufacturers, and contractors to more easily diagnose TD-SCDMA Node B transmitter problems and effectively manage the roll out of the new technology. According to Wensheng Xu, Senior Technical Manager, Product Testing Department, Datang Mobile, "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."
