  • Patent number: 9094869
    Abstract: A method and a system for service quality monitoring in a network includes radio interfaces. The measurements are end-to-end measurements between the end user and chosen network element. The measurements are implemented using monitoring stations which can monitor the traffic passively or actively by transmitting test signals. The antenna beam directions of the monitoring stations can be controlled. The performance server works as a counterpart of the active tests. A reporting suite may define the performed measurements and it also collects the measurement data from different monitoring stations. Monitoring data from several corporate intranets can also be collected to an external server through internet connection.

  • Patent number: 8390515
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for positioning signal sources in a wireless network, e.g. in a WLAN or WiMAX network. The located signal source might be a end user, an interfering source or a base station. At least one monitoring station is placed in the network, which use directional antennas. By combining e.g. the direction of the used antenna beam, the received relative signal levels, propagation delay measurements and several different measurement locations for one or several monitoring stations, the location of the signal source can be determined accurately. The method can also track whether the end user is connected to the most optimal base station by transmitting test signals through base stations.
