Anritsu and TRX Systems Create a Revolutionary In-building Network Test Solution

first_imgAnritsu and TRX Systems announced that they have entered a partnership whereby Anritsu’s handheld analyzers are integrated with a 3D Indoor Location and Mapping solution from TRX Systems to create the industry’s first automatically geo-referenced RF signal mapping solutions. The MA8100A series TRX NEON® Signal Mapper simplifies and dramatically reduces the time required for indoor signal testing, making it an ideal solution for professionals who conduct in-building testing of public safety and commercial networks, including public safety organizations, network operators, and DAS installers.The MA8100A uses TRX Systems unique NEON Tracking Unit along with NEON® Signal Mapper software to deliver real-time 3D location information for indoor test and measurement applications. The TRX NEON Signal Mapper solution can be configured with any Anritsu handheld instrument that features a spectrum analyzer, including the Spectrum Master, LMR Master, Site Master, BTS Master, Cell Master, and VNA Master models.Integrating the TRX Systems NEON® Signal Mapper’s capability to automatically collect geo-referenced test data with Anritsu handheld analyzers provides numerous benefits. It eliminates the need to manually perform “check-ins” at each test point by automatically calculating indoor location so much more data can be gathered. An automatic indoor location and path estimation feature removes conventional data recording errors caused by “guesstimating” locations in large buildings. It can also deliver actionable data in areas not easily analyzed, such as stairways and elevators, by recording and referencing measurements in 3D.The unprecedented data gathering capability and geo-referenced 3D visualization feature of the MA8100A enables quick analysis of signal coverage so users can resolve problems faster. Measurement results can be seen in color grades, as well as 2D and 3D views. The MA8100A also provides end users with centralized access to all of the location information that has been logged via the included Cloud Service. Users with Internet access can easily access and visualize in 3D the previously saved building maps and measurement results from anywhere.The NEON Signal Mapper Application features an intuitive Android user interface that makes it easy for technicians of any experience to easily and accurately map signal and sensor information both inside and outside of buildings. Users can initialize their location, start/stop mapping and load mapping data to the cloud to enable centralized access and visualization.TRX Systems is the developer of the NEON® Indoor Location Solution, delivering location and mapping indoors, underground and in dense urban areas where GPS is not available or is unreliable. NEON delivers ubiquitous, low-cost, 3D indoor location through the use of advanced sensor fusion, ranging, and patented dynamic mapping algorithms.last_img read more

Money mismanaged in TCI Sports Commission scandal

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe now defunct Sports Commission was horribly managed and this forced its shut down.  During recent Public Accounts Committee meetings at Parliament, it was exposed in an audit report that hardly any record was kept of monies going out of the coffers of the entity which was set up as a statutory body, with Alvin Parker as its Director.  In 2009-2010, there were 662 transactions but 312 totaling over $123,000 were without proper documentation; by the next year, 2010-2011 the same continued and there were 228 of 605 transactions undocumented adding up to over $234,000; and in 2011 to 2012 again, more of the same as the transactions not documented were 28 and they totaled, over $173,000.  The recommendations exposed that while the TCI Sports Commission was certainly operating way out of the bounds of a responsible organization; no one was watching or noticing which allowed the risky practices to continue for at least three years. Blank cheques were left signed, almost $50,000 reimbursed to the suspended Director, conflicts of interest where Parker’s business partner allegedly also got money from the Commission, where payment was made for things the Sports Commission did not receive; disorder when it comes to security staff logging hours, without a system the audit exposed that anyone could claim any amount of hours and inflate time actually worked and scrutiny was sorely lacking for this publicly funded body.    Related Items: Alvin Parker is on administrative leave during this situation and though the Commission has been dismantled, he continues to receive a salary from TCIG and others have been absorbed in a new entity managing sports, back under the Ministry of Education.The erratic financial management decisions at the TCI Sports Commission were exposed in an audit and includes findings where staff was loaned money, but there was no reporting on the loans; where reimbursements were made for claims without receipts and other reasonable evidence that personal money was spent and needed to be paid back and missing documents including no budgets, no bank reconciliation statements and no register of fixed assets.  Parker has already been found culpable by a special tribunal, Magnetic Media has learned, but he has appealed the case which charges him with mismanaging public funds to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
