Software upgrade for POCSAG testing

Wednesday, 27 March, 2013 | Supplied by: Cobham AvComm

Aeroflex’s 3920 Series Digital Radio Test Set can now test POCSAG units following a software upgrade.

Aeroflex has announced the POCSAG testing option for the 3920 Series Digital Radio Test Set. With this option, the 3920 Series can now be used to verify the operation of POCSAG pagers and paging systems. This option adds the capability of both sending and decoding POCSAG encoded messages to the 3920 Series.

With a full set of POCSAG receiver testing tools, the operation includes user control of the modulation deviation, bit rate and the message format. The user can select from a list of predefined messages to transmit or they can create their own custom-defined messages.

Pages can be sent to a user-selected radio identification code (RIC) or to a sequence of RICs. The user also has full control of the RF frequency and power level so that receiver sensitivity testing can be performed on any POCSAG receiver.

This option also includes the capability of testing POCSAG transmitters. With the ability to decode the message and measure the modulation parameters, the POCSAG operation provides analysis and operation beyond what is normally included in a test system. The received messages are decoded and logged, with each entry in the log including the message, RIC, FSK deviation and bit rate.

The POCSAG option is a software upgrade that can be performed in the field.
