Battle Ground, WA - January 27, 2022 - Signal Hound recently updated its flagship Spike software to include LTE Analysis Mode. Users and fans of the company's free and heavily capable spectrum analyzer software will now find a highly useful LTE measurement function in the package. The addition of an LTE utility to the core spectrum analysis software package, Spike, aligns with Signal Hound's commitment to its customers and users - to provide unrivaled value in the test equipment industry. Spike contains an ever-growing list of analysis tools for measuring the world's most popular communication signals, making Signal Hound and Spike the most cost-effective solution for many communications and network engineers.

Spike's new LTE measurements allow for the monitoring and scanning of LTE downlink signals. Customers can monitor a single frequency or define and select one or more LTE frequency bands to scan. The software quickly scans and displays cell information such as Cell ID, RSSI, RSRP, RSRQ, MCC/MNC, EARFCN, and SIB1 contents.

These new LTE features provide customers with solutions for network coverage testing, cell discovery and monitoring, network verification, antenna characterization and more. As with all of Spike's updates, the LTE measurements are provided to customers as a free update with Spike version 3.5.21 or newer. The LTE measurements are compatible with the BB60, SM200, and SM435 lines of spectrum analyzers on 64-bit Windows operating systems.

This exciting new feature is included in Spike 3.5.21, available as a free download at immediately.
