The Tetley Handy Kit (THK) is the most advanced and capable low-profile, multi-protocol, hand-held cellular network characterization and survey tool. The THK software suite is optimized for Android OS and allows the user to independently survey a supported band from the following radio access technologies: GSM, GPRS, EDGE, CDMA1xRTT, EvDO, UMTS, WCDMA, HSxPA, LTE (TDD and FDD) or & Wi-Fi. THK’s software suite provides a comprehensive collection of necessary tools to efficiently find commercial cellular channels and neighbor cells within range. The THK is able to gather critical parameters, identify dependencies and map entire networks with easily visualized geo-tagged data. In addition, with the Tetley Handy Kit, the user will be able to fully comprehend critical parameters of individual wireless communication networks and interact with networks in a controlled manner. The THK identifies useful non-broadcast network features including dynamic identification parameters, authentication frequency, distinctive call and data setup processes, and SMS sequencing. With several non-traditional functions, the Tetley Handy Kit allows the user to maximize their on-location effectiveness and safety. The Tetley Handy Kit supports local control via the current hardware platform and can be remotely controlled from anywhere utilizing a Tetley Handy Kit Controller (THKC); a web-based user interface that allows the remote control and management of multiple Tetley Handy Kits simultaneously.
