Master Software Tools (MST) allows Anritsu Spectrum Analyzer users to Capture, Analyze and Document spectrum and spectrogram traces. MST also allows analysis of certain transmission measurements, transmitter signal quality measurements, and backhaul tests. MST is useful for those involved in the analysis of:

  • RF Spectrum Analyzer traces
  • RF Interference
  • Spectrum Monitoring results
  • Transmission Measurements
  • Transmitter signal quality tests
  • T1, T3, and E1 backhaul tests

Features and Benefits

MST can capture test results over Ethernet, USB Cable, or through the use of a USB Memory Stick, depending on the model and options of your Anritsu Handheld Instrument. Analysis capabilities vary depending on the measurement captured. Once opened in MST, measurement results can be included in a MST generated report or inserted into other documents.
