To meet demand for additional bandwidth for cellular and broadcast operations, national regulators are reallocating spectrum previously used for other applications. Before a new network can be rolled out within these frequencies, it is critical for the new license owner to confirm that all legacy users have terminated their transmissions. P/N: 11410-01154
To communicate with the MS2710xA Remote Spectrum Monitor or to change its IP configuration, a PC must be correctly set up to communicate with the instrument via a direct connection using a static IP. This guide explains how to set this up. P/N: 10580-00414
Quick Start Guide
Vision software is also provided as an option for all spectrum monitor models. Vision works with the monitoring hardware to automate the process of collecting measurement data, providing useful information about network heath and use of the spectrum. Vision is composed of two components responsible for monitoring and locating interference signals, called Vision Monitor (option 400) and Vision Locate (option 401). Vision Monitor automatically records spectrum data, maintains a searchable spectrum history database, enables alarm functions for unusual signal activity and provides a set of tools for managing the spectrum monitoring system. Vision Locate provides the capability to geo-locate interference or illegal, unlicensed signals. To properly locate signal positions, three or more monitors must be used. P/N: 10580-00418

There are various methods for geo-locating an RF signal of interest. Primary alternatives include Power of Arrival (POA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA), and Angle of Arrival (AOA). In most situations where modulated signal bandwidths are greater than 25 kHz, TDOA provides the best accuracy. This application note focuses on the use of TDOA as a means for tracking a signal.

Anritsu is the leader of high frequency microwave connector technology and is driven by an ongoing commitment to exceed customer needs. Anritsu created and trademarked the K Connector with coverage to 40 GHz, along with a complete family of 40 GHz test equipment. It was an immediate success and today is used on many commercial components, test fixtures, and
defense systems. P/N: 11410-00235
The Anritsu MS27102A is a remote spectrum monitor designed for remote outdoor applications. This monitor is rated to the IP67 standard, being dust tight (no ingress of dust) and water resistant. Each port on the unit is ruggedized and weatherized. Ports include power, RF Input(s), Gbit Ethernet, and GPS antenna. A quick review of the features and key specifications. P/N: 11410-01085
With the large increase in mobile data traffic, network operators are moving the BBU (BaseBand Units) from macro cell sites to a common central location allowing greater flexibility and cost savings. The connection from the BBU to the RRH (Remote Radio Head) is most commonly via CPRI at rates between 614.4 kbps to 10,137.6 Mbps. P/N: 11410-00927
SpectraVision is a suite of software options and tools used with Anritsu’s MS2710XA product line of spectrum monitors. SpectraVision is a highly modular software system covering the entire frequency range of Anritsu's

Transport, Optical & RF Testing for all Elements of the C-RAN Network.
Anritsu has a long history of testing all aspects of the C-RAN. Our instruments evolve to meet the new challenges of testing the C-RAN
networks being rolled out today. Put our experience to work for you!
The purpose of an in-building wireless (IBW) system is to provide enhanced network coverage
and/or capacity when the existing macro network is not able to adequately service the
demand. Coverage may be poor due to high penetration losses caused by the building
structure or due to low emissivity glass installed to improve the thermal performance of the building. In dense urban environments, adjacent buildings may create an RF barrier that blocks coverage from nearby macro sites. Tall buildings typically have poor coverage on
upper floors since macro site antennas, many floors below, are specifically designed to
suppress energy radiating above the horizon. Capacity may be an issue in venues such as
stadiums, coliseums and convention centers where many thousands of users may be trying to
simultaneously access the network.
This solution brochure covers the four steps to success when interference hunting, as well as which Anritsu product/solution is suitable for each step in the process. P/N: 11410-00900
A spectrum monitoring system will facilitate 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. Patterns of unwanted signal activity can also be examined, providing an efficient way to characterize and locate the source of the interference problem.
This documentation provides a description of the Anritsu’s Remote Spectrum Monitor (RSM) and Vision Software API’s. It describes the graphical user interface, provides a how-to chapter to set up measurements, discusses API programing, and covers a lists of API programming commands. API's are presented both for control of Anritsu's RSM hardware product line (MS2710XA) as well as for Vision software. Most features in Vision are paid options. In order for these options to work, the RSM hardware must have these options
enabled. Please see the Vision software Product Brochure and User Guide for option information.

Customs and Border Protection agencies have a
complex mission at ports of entry with broad law enforcement authorities tied to screening all foreign visitors, returning native citizens, and imported cargo that enters the country via land, air, and sea ports. Interference caused by RF signals, whether
illicit or simply bandwidth intensive, complicate this mission even further.
Positive Train Control (PTC) is an advanced communications system to minimize train accidents by automatically controlling train activity. This includes real-time monitoring of static and dynamic conditions that require the train to slow or stop.
Clifton Weiss & Associates, Inc. (CWA) was retained as professional consulting engineers to conduct a 3-year study of interfering RF signals on an actively operating Northeast commuter railway.
The Case Study talks about and discusses the challenges and solutions.
