The German Federal Network Agency for Electricity, Gas, Telecommunications, Post and Railway (Bundesnetzagentur) has chosen Rohde & Schwarz for 12 R&S®PR200 portable monitoring receivers, in addition to the 62 units delivered last year. The regulatory agency has chosen the R&S®PR200 for its excellent RF characteristics, fast signal processing and well-engineered operability.
The R&S®PR200 is a highly versatile monitoring receiver for field operations with a 40 MHz real-time bandwidth over the very wide frequency range of 8 kHz to 8 GHz – extensible to 20 GHz or 33 GHz with the R&S®HE400DC or R&S®HE800-DC30 handheld antennas, both with integrated downconverters. Thanks to its wide range of measurement functions and comprehensive signal analysis capabilities, the R&S®PR200 is one of the most sophisticated instruments on the market for complex signal measurements, including 5G signals.
“As a trusted technology partner, we have a long-term relationship with the Bundesnetzagentur,” says Anne Stephan, Vice President Critical Infrastructure & Network, Rohde & Schwarz. “Our devices help the agency in demanding field operations, with minimal size, weight and power consumption (SWaP). The R&S®PR200 offers a perfect balance between RF performance, speed, usability and SWaP to handle typical tasks in every mobile spectrum monitoring, spectrum clearance, interference hunting and site testing mission in indoor and outdoor environments.”
The R&S®PR200 is an indispensable tool for regulatory authorities, mobile network operators, police forces, military units and other security organizations. They can use the portable receiver to search for and analyze known and unknown radio emissions and to localize signal sources.
