About us

The KABELKOM’s Testing Laboratory is accredited by the Polish Center for Accreditation* (www.pca.gov.pl, accreditation No. AB 1149). The scope of our accreditation is unique in Europe. It comprises:

  • leakage measurements of cable TV networks required by the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC according to EN 50083-8
  • stationary/mobile propagation measurements (E field intensity, additionally MER, BER, finding interference sources, etc. according to ITU-R SM.378-7, ITU-R SM.1708, CEPT/ERC/REC (00)08) of radio transmitters for various radio communication systems (e.g. DVB-T/H, DAB, FM radio, TETRA, P.25).

We can gather and process (the Lee method) the data for propagation model tuning. As a part of mobile measurements we perform outdoor and indoor pedestrian measurements (e.g., for DVB-T/H). The Laboratory can prepare and perform any experimental measurement campaign or tests of new radio communication systems. We offer the interpretation of the results leading to the improvement of network coverage/service quality. The measurement results are visualized on maps (satellite, paper tourist maps, GIS systems) in the formats required by a customer. We can also design and verify radio communication systems (including coverage simulation).

The Laboratory cooperates with technical universities and research institutes. Our staff is well-qualified and experienced in measurements, design and deployment of radio communication and cable TV systems. We have modern equipment and two specialized measurement vehicles with 10 m masts and automatic measurement systems for mobile leakage and propagation measurements.

The Laboratory has done propagation and leakage measurements for many companies (e.g., MOTOROLA or UPC) in the following countries: Austria, France, Switzerland, Portugal, Ireland, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Lithuania, Latvia, Norway, Holland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Poland.


* The Polish Center for Accreditation takes part in works of international organizations acting in the field of accreditation. PCA is the member of IAF (International Accreditation Forum, Inc.), ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation) and EA (European Co-operation for Accreditation). Thanks to the cooperation the certif icates and reports issued by the accredited bodies and laboratories in Poland are recognized in the world (IAF, ILAC) and in Europe (EA).
