Company website
The MT8801B Radio Communication Analyser, with MX880118A DECT Measurement Software (PDF FIle), provides a high-speed tester for DECT fixed and portable parts.   The product supports a wide range of ETSI test cases as detailed in ETS 300 176-1, including such parameters as - accuracy/stability of RF carriers, timing jitter, RFP reference timing accuracy, packet transmission accuracy, transmission burst (power vs time), transmitted power, carrier modulation, emissions due to modulation and transmitter transients, receiver sensitivity, reference BER, interference performance, blocking and intermodulation.  

The equipment can establish a MAC layer communication to the device-under-test, emulating either a fixed or portable part.  Special MAC layer test messages are also supported.   A number of 'clever' features are available to enable the tester to provide accelerated product testing, to maximise testing throughput.

Traffic Monitor
The DECT monitor is a tool for monitoring DECT on-air traffic. The graphic presentation of the radio signal strength allows a quick overview of the usage of DECT channels at any point in time. In addition, the capabilities of all base stations  within the coverage area of the DECT monitor are shown.  A DECT radio module from Fraunhofer is needed for operating the DECT monitor. This module is connected with a PC by a serial communication interface.  Module details here.

Kirk 1600 Handset:  A professional diagnostic tool for fault finding and deployment of DECT systems
The Kirk 1600 handset contains various features to simplify fault finding in existing DECT solutions and for setting up new DECT installations.   The handset allows the user to see all DECT systems – both business - and residential systems in the area and to find out if there are too many systems running i.e. if there is too much radio activity in the air.   Kirk 1600 can be set to find all current bases running, but it is possible – by making a selection of the RFPI no. – to search for a particular group of bases.

It is thus easy to determine the probability of having "hot spots" in the DECT system. It is possible to see how much noise there is on each of the 120 channels, with noise levels from –90 dBm to –60 dBm in jumps of 5 dBm.     The Kirk 1600 is able to lock to a base and avoid handover to other bases, enabling to see the frequencies and timeslots used and consequently to find out if special frequencies or timeslots create problems for the DECT system
