ICS™-550

ICS-550 is an advanced network characterization tool that surveys the environment and records the metadata of detected control channels and the information therein. These completely passive measurements are obtained without handshaking or any additional interfacing with the communications network.

ICS-550 provides its users with state-of-the-art survey solutions that support the new 5G NR technologies. This product has been designed to support both the evolution of 5G non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) networks. There are two product offerings: the ICS-550 and ICS-550 DC. The optional downconverter (DC) expands the 5G survey frequency range.

ICS-550 is capable of surveying the new mmWave frequency bands allocated for 5G NR networks while simultaneously scanning sub 6 GHz frequencies. The system form factor remains light and portable by utilizing a downconverter to survey the mmWave frequency bands. QRC will continue to develop new features to support 5G NR surveying as technologies advance.

The DCode Pro software is the user’s primary interface when taking control of the ICS-550 system, viewing real time notifications, managing data, and conducting advanced signal analysis.
