Paris 19-Nov-2019

At this year's MILIPOL in Paris, France, Rohde & Schwarz (booth 5D086) is showcasing its R&S NESTOR Windows based software for analyzing cellular networks over the air interface. The software is widely deployed by law enforcement agencies, intelligence services and armed forces.

R&S NESTOR is used together with Rohde & Schwarz mobile network scanners, which offer the most advanced technology worldwide. The software supports all relevant applications that public authorities and security organizations need to gather information about cellular networks. R&S NESTOR is used in vehicles, aircraft, drones and on foot.

R&S NESTOR features a cutting-edge touchscreen software architecture. In addition to direct acquisition, visualization and real-time analysis of all measurement data (online), the software enables users to carry out in-depth postprocessing and long-term analysis (offline).

R&S NESTOR is simple and convenient to operate. Since it has just a few, uniformly designed control elements, both experienced and inexperienced users can quickly learn how to use the software and obtain fast, conclusive results. Only minimal training is needed to efficiently acquire information.

R&S NESTOR supports the following applications:

  • Automatic detection of all GSM, UMTS, LTE (TDD and FDD), 5G NR, CDMA2000® and EV-DO networks, bands and channels
  • Autonomous acquisition of cell information, signal power and signal quality
  • Mobile network coverage measurements and determination of cell boundaries
  • Creation and management of cell lists including geographic positions
  • Retrieval of coverage data for forensic investigations
  • Detection and analysis of misconfigured cells (mobile and stationary applications)

R&S NESTOR architecture supports direct (live), autonomous (offline) and networked operations as well as client/server operation over IP based links.
