The SNYPER-3G is a high performance cellular signal and network analyser for the 3G / UMTS(EU Bands only) and 2G / GPRS(Quad Band)networks. It enables the user to easily and simply establish which networks are available in an area and what signal strength they have. The Snyper has a large colour screen for displaying the summary results of a scan. A great tool for the casual user and busy professional alike. The Snyper is supplied in a hard case along with its own wall charger and can take the rough knocks of life in a car or van. The Snyper is powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts well and enables many scans to be performed on one charge. The last scan performed is held in memory regardless of battery charge level.
Used as an invaluable tool for the surveying and commissioning of wireless systems, the SNYPER-3G can perform a number of different functions to determine optimum antenna placement, performance of existing installations or choice of network operator. As an example, the SNYPER-3G can determine the strength of a particular network signal, or can review all available network signals in the area of use, and rank these in order of strength through its summary page.
The summary page is an incredibly powerful feature allowing network operator choice to be made based on both signal strength and number of usable cells, with all data visible concurrently. The SNYPER-3G also has a number of signal strength thresholds within the summary page, providing a more concise view where only signals above a certain dB level are of interest.
The menus and operation of the SNYPER-3G have been designed to be as logical and intuitive as possible, making the unit very simple to use. A large high contrast LCD display ensures that all information is clearly visible, and allows for the presentation of considerable data at the same time. The SNYPER-3G also allows for considerable customisation of settings including automatic power off, charging rate, sound, and display colour and contrast. Operating without the need for a SIM, the SNYPER-3G automatically stores the last survey performed, and this remains available for recall and review even after power off, until a new survey is made.
The SNYPER-3G is supplied with a compact antenna providing excellent performance in combination with the unit. The antenna may also be removed to allow direct connection of an on-site antenna, via SMA connector. This is particularly useful in determining the performance, or optimum network operator, for an existing fixed installation.
Supplied in its own hard carrying case, the SNYPER-3G is designed for continuous professional use over many years, with the robust enclosure and rubber surround providing additional shock protection. A multi region power supply is also included for charging of the unit through its USB port. The supplied rechargeable battery allows for up to 48 hours of use between charges, making the SNYPER-3G a highly portable solution. The unit will also automatically power down after a period of inactivity, maximising battery life.
