RF Engineering Services

R-Spectrum provides telecommunications consulting services to clients across a range of disciplines, from commercial and industrial clients, to defence and national security.

Our services range from specialised RF design and procurement, to radio access network design, and through to field support.

We perform a range of investigative desktop studies to determine availability and performance of wireless networks in the area under question. Advanced radio propagation modelling tools are used to deconstruct and reverse-engineer the network, allowing us to assess coverage, predict download / upload data rates, and recommend equipment to improve connectivity.

Services are available for a range of wireless technologies including;

  • Cellular Broadband - 4G LTE, and 5G NR
  • Gigabit Wireless Access (GWA)
  • Internet of Things - NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, and Sigfox
  • Point to Point / Point to Multipoint
  • Packet Microwave, including 60 / 80 GHz mmWave
  • Enterprise and Industrial WiFi Design, including 802.11ac/ax/ah/ay
Antenna laboratory analysis

Projects can encounter scenarios where it may be advantageous to have a custom antenna designed rather than to adopt an off-the-shelf product. This can be due to the difficulty in sourcing an exact match to meet the demands of the project, or an unnecessarily high cost for the existing design.

Wireless communication is a complex and continuously evolving industry that requires highly specialised equipment made to exacting specifications, a fact that becomes ever more fortified as operators adopt new technology standards requiring precision network hardware.

Many antenna manufacturers do not follow a common standard when designing, during the production process, or when compiling supporting documentation. R-Spectrum's antenna testing service is an impartial consultation that enables clients to conduct a side-by-side comparison of the actual performance of antennas that is independent from manufacturer supplied datasheets.

Using the latest microwave link analysis and LIDAR processing tools, R-Spectrum can develop comprehensive microwave and mmWave point-to-point link designs.

We help our clients visualise and understand mobile signal issues by providing coverage studies for 3G, 4G LTE, and 5G networks.

R-Spectrum develop small to medium scale distributed antenna systems known as OTARS to provide mobile coverage throughout commercial and industrial buildings.

By using advanced computer modelling R-Spectrum provide predictive coverage mapping for NB-IoT, LTE-M, LoRa, and Sigfox LPWA networks.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is an idea where everything is connected. Connecting cars, soil, machinery, vending machines, plants, people, everything down to the air we breathe. The idea is that our ability to interact with the world is entirely dependent on our understanding of it. By using sensors we can capture some really detailed data on our world, allowing us to manage it at much greater ease.

Ensuring that wireless systems satisfy engineering requirements and meet budgetary constraints is a challenge even the best in the business contend with. Our team works to provide clients with quality information that cuts through the technical fog and makes sure our clients are spending money in the right places.

Challenging telecommunications projects can call for more than expert design. R-Spectrum provide on-site support for any of its projects.
