Anritsu Company announces the Toughest Site Competition 2013 that recognizes the challenges faced every day by field engineers and technicians responsible for deploying, installing, and maintaining wireless networks. The contest, which runs until June 30, 2013, highlights how field professionals overcome harsh weather conditions, extreme environments, and technical challenges to ensure the operation of private and commercial wireless networks.
Twelve finalists will receive GoPro® cameras and the Grand Prize winner will drive away with a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. All entrants earn a commemorative Toughest Site Competition 2013 t-shirt. Entrants simply complete a form detailing how they overcame mountaintop blizzard conditions, avoided snakes or other deadly animals in the desert, solved an interference problem that seemed to have no cause, or something more challenging, and submit it, along with appropriate videos, images, or other visuals, to the Toughest Site website.
"Our first Toughest Site Competition was extremely successful and truly put in perspective how difficult a job the professionals responsible for the operation of wireless networks have. We want to continue to recognize those field engineers and technicians, and look forward to hearing about the obstacles they have overcome to do their jobs so well," said Donn Mulder, VP and GM, Microwave Measurements Division, Anritsu Company.
The contest is open to U.S. wireless professionals who use Anritsu handheld analyzers, including the BTS Master™, Cell Master™, LMR Master™, PIM Master™, Site Master™, Spectrum Master™, and VNA Master™. Talley, Inc., one of Anritsu's Channel Partners/Distributors, is co-sponsoring this year's contest.
