The MT8212E Cell Master™ Base Station Analyzer is the smallest, lightest, and most economical solution for 2G/3G/4G, and WiMAX base station transmitter testing and ISDB-T and DVB-T/H digital broadcast field testing. It's ideal for installation and commissioning as well as for maintenance and troubleshooting.

This optimal combination of base station test capabilities in one handheld device eliminates the need for several independent test instruments, thereby reducing the number of tools the user must carry and learn to operate. Whether it's sweeping cables, making power measurements, finding interference, troubleshooting base station signal quality, or verifying backhaul performance, the Cell Master MT8212E is the ideal all-in-one instrument to help keep your network up and running.

In addition, easyTest Tools™ allows experienced users to Create, Deliver, and Display on-screen work instructions. These work instructions make life easier for less-experienced cable and antenna sweepers. Direct benefits include more accurate testing, repeatable results, and less rework. For more details see the easyTest Tools page.

The CPRI/OBSAI RF option allows users to see the Uplink and Downlink signals via the optical CPRI/OBSAI link in a traditional RF Spectrum and Spectrogram view.
