5G - Everything, Connected

Overcoming the current limitations of 4G is the principal goal of 5G, a concept that is both an evolution of wireless networks to meet future demands for data and a revolution in architecture to enable a cost conscious network that can be efficiently scaled. The technologies being proposed are also trying to look into the future and support what the networks and demand will look like in 2022 when 5G networks are expected to be deployed on a large scale.

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.

Broadband Stimulus

The Broadband Stimulus initiative creates jobs, improves infrastructure and helps the American economy by bringing high-speed communications to unserved and underserved locations. Networks must be built out quickly and cost effectively. Fiber, coax or other connectivity must be deployed to the access level in remote areas where service could not be provided economically in the past.

Coverage and Interference Mapping

Assessing a signal environment to ensure proper deployment, installation and operation of wireless networks is no easy task. From natural obstructions such as mountains to man-made obstacles like wind turbine generators, signal integrity is one of the biggest concerns for wireless service providers, public safety users, LMR operations and government officials.

C-RAN

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

 

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 platforms are 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.

Fibre Channel

Fibre Channel is a communications standard featuring efficient and fast transfer of the large data volumes required by financial institutions, data centers, etc. Cloud services, using data centers accessed via networks, are increasingly popular for storing data and are generating an increased demand for Fibre Channel testing.

Anritsu's Fibre Channel test function is designed to meet this growing need.

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.

Discovering interference before customers see the issue is a huge advantage. Anritsu Company provides a range of solutions to help identify the presence of interference, locate and pinpoint the source to resolve the issue.

LTE

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the established next generation mobile technology, with many legacy systems and variants being integrated into operator network upgrades. The challenge for wireless device developers is to offer the right services and be able to support a variety of systems to ensure their devices can connect globally on any mobile network.

LTE addresses some of the key issues in the network:

  • Spectrum Flexibility and Efficiency
  • New Service Capabilities
  • Faster Data Rates

OTN, SDH/SONET, PDH/DSn

The most recent transport solution is OTN which transports TDM circuits over long distances by providing Generic Forward Error Correction (GFEC).OTN is seen as the best transport solution because it offers fault management, performance monitoring, and protection mechanisms, coupled with a low cost-of-entry point and the ability to support current infrastructure with Ethernet, Fibre Channel, SDH/SONET and PDH/DSn networks. 

OTN 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 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.

SyncE

Regular Ethernet is an asynchronous communications standard where the timing of data sent and data received are not matched. This simplifies the type of transmission equipment needed. Smartphones however, require synchronized timing of data between base stations in order to permit uninterrupted transmission as the Smartphones move between base stations.

The ITU-T organization has established a new standard called SyncE that adds a function for synchronizing asynchronous Ethernet communications. In addition, IEEE also has a new standard known as IEEE 1588 v2.

Anritsu’s Ethernet test solutions support standard Ethernet communications and provide the ideal platforms for verifying, developing and troubleshooting the new SyncE (Synchronous Ethernet) and IEEE 1588 v2 functions used by base stations.

TD-SCDMA

Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) is an air interface found in UMTS mobile telecommunications networks in China. It is a Time Division Duplex (TDD) 3G technology as opposed to Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) like W-CDMA. TD-SCDMA is primarily used for voice and it utilizes a TDD version of HSPA for data. China Mobile is the operator in China utilizing this technology making it the largest 3G network operator in the world.
