Vectalabs is a service business focused on testing of cellular/ mobile RF path devices, Antennas and Active Antenna systems

Our company principals have a long-standing history of RF and the cellular industry:

  • First to develop and commercialize dual polarization electrical down tilt base station antennas
  • First to develop and commercialize RET base station antennas
  • First to introduce multi-beam base station antennas
  • First to develop and commercialize portable PIM test set and field PIM testing
  • First to offer an independent commercial facility specialising in testing of cellular components and antennas
  • First to introduce mobile facility for testing of complete active antenna systems (provisional patent application submitted)
  • Nokia Academy training: Flexi Multiradio BTS GSM/ WCDMA/ LTE

Accreditations

Nokia Academy Training: Flexi Multiradio BTS GSM / WCDMA / LTE

ISO 9001:2015 CERTIFICATION

ISO 14001:2015 CERTIFICATION

Building on solid design, manufacture and testing experience of RF path products – filters, combiners, TMAs and base station antennas. Vecta is an independent 3rd party test qualification and consulting company with a focus to make Radio Access Networks (RAN) accountable.

Vecta qualifies the design and manufacturing standard of RF antenna line components and antennas and very recently developed tools enabling onsite investigations, using portable shielded and anechoic test facilities (provisional patent application submitted).

Now Operators of mobile networks can eliminate expensive commissioning, tower top installation errors, fault diagnosis and corrective services.  No longer are Operators dependent solely on health metrics provided by the system.

CURRENT CELLULAR RADIO SYSTEMS

Cellular radio systems operate with degraded performance more often than recognised.  These problems can be difficult and even impossible to identify in the field, and the on-board system performance metrics often can’t reveal the extent of degraded performance. Time after time maintenance crews are called in to fix continuing and new problems. 

Anecdotal evidence indicating 5% or more of sites fail to deliver the planned operational and financial standards. The reality is that some sites have never achieved the expected level of performance. The result is financial cost: budgets become stressed through the poor use of capex together with unplanned ongoing Opex. The problems get worse with high data rates and congested spectrum.

A common response is to install more sites that fail to perform
