February 14, 2018 – KIRKLAND, WA — Spectrum Effect®, a pioneer in RF spectrum analytics, today announced a successful milestone in the trial of its Spectrum-NET™ machine learning solution with Elisa Estonia.

Spectrum-NET automatically detects, characterizes, locates and assesses the impact of external and unintended internal RF interference in mobile networks. Spectrum-NET operates throughout multi-vendor LTE and UMTS networks on a continual basis without service interruption or dependency on external probes.

“The successful trial utilizing Spectrum-NET to analyze Elisa’s mobile network uncovered numerous instances of external and unintended internal RF interference, including previously undetectable passive intermodulation (PIM) interference,” stated Kristo Kork, Head of Radio Access Networks and Infrastructure at Elisa. “The elimination of external interference from our network enables Elisa to realize the full value of our spectrum and continue to deliver on our promise to exceed customers’ expectations.”

“Elisa is a very innovative operator and it’s been a great experience collaborating with their team. We are pleased to have achieved exceptional results in this trial and we are now fully focused on providing measurable benefits to mobile operators with our full-scale, global launch of Spectrum-NET later this year,” commented Spectrum Effect CEO, Frank J. DeJoy.

Spectrum Effect will demonstrate Spectrum-NET™ and select trial results in stand 7I80 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
