Anritsu Company's handheld WiMAX Mobile WiMAX RF Measurements Analyzer gives field engineers an easy, accurate way to conduct precise measurements on WiMAX signals.
Weighing 9 pounds, the analyzer complements Anritsu's BTS Master and Spectrum Master platforms and offers three options to provide users with flexibility when configuring their instrument RF, demodulation, and OTA.
It can be used to measure the transmitted signal strength and signal shape of a transmitter. When configured with the RF Measurement option, it can conduct Channel Spectrum, Power versus Time (with 5 ms and 10 ms frame lengths), and ACPR measurements. RF summary screens can also be displayed with the option.
Engineers and technicians can use the Mobile WiMAX Demodulator to analyze OFDMA signals and display detailed measurements for evaluating transmitter modulation performance.
Measurement screens that can be displayed are constellation (QPSK, 16 QAM, 64 QAM), spectral flatness, EVM versus subcarrier, EVM versus symbol, DL MAP with automatic decoding, and modulation summary.
A channel power monitor measurement included in the OTA option analyzes a specific channel's power over time and specified interval. This feature can be combined with a GPS feature so that measurement data can include GPS location and time data for plotting on a map.
All the options can be used with the MT8222A BTS Master, and the Spectrum Master MS2721B, MS2723B, and MS2724B analyzers.
Pricing of the options is $1,250 for the RF measurements, $1,875 for the OTA measurements, and $6,950 for the demodulator. More information is available at www.anritsu.com.
