The Internet of Things (IoT)

IoT, along with 5G, are “the next big thing” in the Tech World. Many industries are excited about the opportunities it presents, worried about the changes and perplexed by the challenges. If you ask 10 people what The Internet of Things means you are likely to get 10 different answers ranging from Big Data to the connected car and autonomous driving. Still, one common denominator remains: The Internet of Things relies on products that are physically connected to the outside world. Be it wired or wireless, without this connection the Internet of Things will not exist.

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 mostly by the Internet. As the amount of mobile data increases due to the spread of smartphones, demand for higher speeds is driving Ethernet speed increases from the initial 10 Mbps to 100 Mbps followed by 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps. Data centers handling core data networks between cities and metro networks within cities are already implementing upgrades to 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps. In addition, discussions on ultra-fast 400 Gbps Ethernet are also in progress.

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.

LTE and LTE-Advanced

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

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 transmission destination. Using OTN like this has several advantages listed below:

Anritsu is a test vendor supporting 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.
