PartnerTech: New method for solving a queuing problem in telecommunications

PartnerTech: New method for solving a queuing problem in telecommunications PartnerTech has developed an automatic system that provides a solution to queuing problems during the tuning of a filter for base radio stations. The new method cuts assembly time by more than half in relation to previous processes. All types of base stations for mobile communication use amplifiers and filters. After assembly, these need to be finely tuned, which is currently a time-consuming process carried out manually. The process is very work- intensive, and the personnel require a great deal of training and experience, and these two factors often generate queuing problems - "bottle-necks" - when volume increases. The new process developed by PartnerTech allows tuning to be carried out automatically using new equipment and a new software that has been designed in-house. A unique aspect of PartnerTech's method is the fact that new software can tune an entire filter in one operation, resulting in appreciable savings in time. Moreover, this unique equipment is competitively priced, making it financially sound to automate adjustments even at moderate production volumes. Not only does this new automated process reduce costs, it also increases the reliability of the tuning and thus raises the quality of the end product. - "Via unique customer applications, this automated process can be used by PartnerTech for all telecommunications clients. Thanks to our competence and development skills, we at PartnerTech can become involved in every stage of a project, from development to production", says Mikael Jonson, CEO of PartnerTech.
