Anritsu Company Introduces Accessories for InterferenceHunter to Simplify Locating Network Interference in the Field

New Bandpass Filters and Directional Antenna Aid Field Engineers and Technicians Find Causes of Interference to Maintain Network Quality

Anritsu Company introduces five bandpass filters and a directional antenna for its MA2700A Handheld InterferenceHunter to aid field technicians responsible for wireless network performance easily locate causes of network interference. Mounting a bandpass filter and directional antenna to the MA2700A helps users maintain specified network performance and ensure KPIs by locating the source of interference so it can be corrected quickly.

Five bandpass filters for the U.S market covering key uplink frequencies (699-715 MHz, 776-788 MHz, 815-850 MHz, 1711-1756 MHz, and 1850-1910 MHz) are available. Easily attached to the MA2700A, the new bandpass filters help field technicians locate the cause of interference by reducing and eliminating problems caused by large out-of-band signals. The new broadband antenna replaces several Yagi antennas. It is designed for users who must locate interference in more than one band.

The MA2700A InterferenceHunter handheld direction finding system, which incorporates a GPS receiver and antenna, electronic compass, and user-selectable preamplifier, enhances interference mapping and simplifies locating interference sources in wireless networks. No additional power source is necessary, as the MA2700A InterferenceHunter is powered through its USB connector. Designed for use with Anritsu’s BTS Master&trade:, Cell Master&trade:, and Spectrum Master&trade: handheld analyzers, the MA2700A InterferenceHunter can be used by field engineers and technicians during deployment, installation, and maintenance of wireless networks.
