Base Station Testing

The base station is at the core of your RF wireless installation. It’s where you make the connections for your cables, antennas, transmitters and receivers. And it’s where most problems can occur that can affect performance through component failures, wireless interference or incorrect installation or maintenance. The result can be unacceptable downtime for your networks, and time-consuming work to fix the problem by your field techs.

The implementation of 4G LTE and the race to 5G cellular networks is upon us. Massive network densification is required to support the surge in demand for mobile data and support of the Internet of Things (IoT). Historically, development of the mobile network focused on enhancing the radio interface with new modulation schemes, in-building wireless and small cells. Future requirements will only be met if the implementation of the whole network is reconsidered, which is achieved by network virtualization in a C-RAN architecture.

Ethernet is a communications standard used primarily for the Internet. With the increasing popularity of smartphones and the resulting increase in mobile data, the demand for higher Internet speed has driven an increase from initial speeds of 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps up to 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps and higher. Data centers, handling core data networks between cities as well as metro networks within cities, are already implementing upgrades to 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps. In addition, discussions of ultra-fast Ethernet speeds of 400 Gbps are in progress 

Anritsu's Network Master Series test platform is ideal for developing and manufacturing new devices that support stable communications through the use of high-speed Ethernet and for troubleshooting and maintenance of communications networks.

Interference Hunting

Interference hunting requires the ability to spot, find and fix a known interferer which is not always an easy task. Not only having the right tools, but the ability to properly identify the issue is key to interference hunting. As strange as it may sound, the first step to solving an interference issue is actually determining that there really is interference. Sometimes there are other issues at play that cause a communications system to work less than optimally but don’t actually involve an outside signal.

Land Mobile Radio (LMR)

Next-generation public safety communications will more than likely pair narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks for voice with broadband LTE networks for high speed data. Ensuring these networks are properly installed and maintained is critical to ensuring mission-critical public safety communication and keeping the public safe. The Anritsu S412E LMR Master is the only solution on the market today that provides a quick, easy, and cost-effective means of verifying the operation of both narrowband LMR and broadband LTE networks, and when necessary, diagnosing problems.

When using Ethernet communications, the data is commonly transmitted by mapping once, using the Optical Transport Network (OTN) communications standard, and is then returned to the Ethernet standard by demapping at the transmission destination.

Using OTN like this has several advantages:

  • A high-reliability network can be configured by using error correction during transmission (Forward Error Correction: FEC).
  • Using the OTN switching function supports data transmission to the destination with assured reliability.
  • Smooth support is assured for legacy standards like SDH/SONET, PDH/DSn, etc., as well as for as-yet-unknown future data mapping standards.

Anritsu test equipment supports OTN FEC function inspections in line with ITU-T standards, while also offering strong support for current SDH/SONET, PDH/DSn inspection standards.

Passive Intermodulation (PIM)

PIM is a growing issue for cellular network operators. PIM issues may occur as existing equipment ages, when co-locating new carriers, or when installing new equipment. PIM can create interference that will reduce a cell’s receive sensitivity or even block calls. This interference can affect both the cell that creates it, as well as other nearby receivers.

Remote Spectrum Monitoring

Interference detection and spectrum monitoring is used to characterize spectrum occupancy. Using a spectrum monitoring system facilitates the identification and removal of illegal or unlicensed interference signals. By monitoring spectrum on a continual basis, problem signals can be identified as they occur in real time.
