The SNYPER-3G is a high performance cellular signal and network analyser for the 3G / UMTS and 2G / GPRS networks, with a host of important features for the busy engineer and installer. Building on our many years of signal tester experience, the new SNYPER range utilises the same design platform used in our advanced wireless terminals to provide market leading performance and functionality, at a highly competitive price.
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.
NOTE: More recent models of the SNYPER-3G include a SIM slot but this is not required in order for the unit to function. The SIM slot is there for use on the sister product SNYPER-3G Spectrum.http://www.siretta.co.uk/snyper-3g-spectrum-p-958.php
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.
