Comarco Extends Receiver To TD-SCDMA

Comarco Wireless Test Solutions is extending its Prizm Scanning Receiver System to support the emerging TD SCDMA standard currently being deployed in China. The Prizm System is an advanced scanning receiver used by cellular carriers to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot cellular networks that conform to the Time Division-Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) 3G mobile standard. It is supported by Datang and Siemens AG. According to Mark Chapman, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of Comarco Wireless Test Solutions, "TD-SCDMA promises a significant advance over similar systems, providing both increased capacity and advanced data features and is being positioned to support the rapid growth expected in the China mobile marketplace." The Comarco Prizm scanner supports many new features specific to TD-SCDMA, including DwPTS detection, which simplifies performance analysis by identifying individual DwPTS in a spectrum and facilitates identification of the strongest DwPTS. An sutomatic scrambling code decoding function simplifies performance analysis by showing the individual PCCPCH, which in turn permits identification of the strongest PCCPCH and eases base station identification.
