XCAL Series

Data at Your Finger Tips

The XCAL series of tools are a real-time, handset-based air-interface monitoring solution designed specifically to troubleshoot, maintain and optimize wireless voice and data network performance. XCAL delivers a highly intuitive and flexible platform to monitor network performance, assess QoS/QoE and ensure seamless service integration with existing GSM, WCDMA, HSPA, CDMA, EVDO, WiMAX and LTE.

XCAL supports all major wireless standards and technologies and is available in many licensable variations:

  • CDMA2000 1x,
  • EVDO Rev.0, Rev.A, Rev.B
  • WiMAX, and
  • LTE

Further, it is continually evolved and updated to support the latest technology upgrades and client-feedback.

Used extensively on many of the world’s largest networks, XCAL automatically records and deciphers messages from the air-interface to detect network bottlenecks and impediments to delivering high quality voice and data services. The subsequent measurement results are a valuable input across the network enterprise from Network Planning and Optimization, Roll-out, New Service Verification and Maintenance division.

Key parameters from XCAL may be stored for more in-depth analysis in XCAP, Accuver’s leading post-processing solution.

Use XCAL to
  • Perform drive test for service verification and gauge ‘success’ of network upgrades
  • QoS measurements (Voice and/or Video MOS)
  • End to end application testing (SMS, FTP, Ping, HTTP, E-Mail, UDP, VoIP, etc)
  • Minimize OPEX through automating many labor-intensive workflows
  • Intelligently manage massive volumes of drive test data, maps and performance counters
  • Conduct indoor and outdoor network performance analysis
  • Multiple data sessions are possible on each test terminal

Measurement display (L1 to L3) and various quality parameters between segments are graphically represented

Use XCAL to
  • Supports all major technologies: GSM, WCDMA, HSPA, CDMA, EVDO, WiMAX and LTE
  • Single platform for QoS and QoE
  • Intutive - very simple to use and minimal or no training involved
  • Highly customizable, stable and robust
  • User modifications (e.g. new features/functions) are encouraged and delivered through annual maintenance
  • Easy and cheap to maintain

Other products and services from Accuver


Accuver, post processing solution: WiNOA

Information can be managed and shared throughput the enterprise easily and be used for a range of different purposes; from the visualization of RAN performance or by Customer Care, Management and even field Engineers who want to perform root-cause analysis. Measurement data can be over-layed with other network sercive data to identify and visualize key network performance metrics and bottlenecks.


Accuver, end to end solution: E2ES

By collecting real-time information from a variety of network elements E2ES filters, correlates, assembles and structures the data to provide an accurate picture of network performance. With E2ES network operators can now measure and analyze the end to end performance of their UMTS networks in one integrated platform. E2ES is designed to provide a holistic view of the network for true system-wide optimization.


Accuver, post processing solution: XCAP Series

XCAP is a powerful and highly configurable analysis platform that enables the mining, analysis, geo-spatial visualization and reporting of data gathered in XCAL, XCAL-MO, XCAL-MTS, XCAL-Mobile and XCAL-Remote. One of the key benefits of XCAP is to minimize OPEX by automating the whole network post processing and troubleshooting workflow from accessing drive test data to delivering analysis and reporting result.


Accuver, handy solution: XCAL-Mobile

It supports extensive application testing and delivers real-time network measurement and visualization capability in a simple mobile phone. XCAL-Mobile is a leading handheld air-interface monitoring tool that enables QoS and QoE testing. All features can be controlled by using the normal handset keys so anybody can use it.


Accuver, lab test solution: XCAL-MTS

XCAL-MTs is a real time, multiple User Equipment based data collection tool supporting a variety of wireless technologies (GSM, WCDMA, HSPA, CDMA, EVDO, WiMAX and LTE). It enables the user to troubleshoot, maintain, optimize and benchmark wireless voice/data systems and networks with one revolutionary tool. Message filtering and voice alarm allows the user to monitor and identify problems in real time.
