Morgan Hill, Calif.Anritsu Co. has introduced a comprehensive LTE base station measurement suite that allows field engineers and technicians to conduct tests necessary for the proper deployment, installation, and operation of LTE networks.
The measurement suite is a set of optional measurement capabilities for Anritsu's MS272xB Spectrum Master, and MT8222A and MT8221B BTS Master handheld analyzers that includes tests for RF signal parameters, modulation quality, and Over-the-Air (OTA) scanning.
The LTE RF measurement option allows users to accurately and quickly analyze the spectrum for interference and spectral compliance, as well as conduct occupied bandwidth and Adjacent Channel Leakage Ratio (ACLR) tests. With the LTE modulation quality measurement option, Error Vector Magnitude (EVM), frequency error, and Control Channel power tests can be conducted. OTA measurements with the third option are used to determine interference from co-channel transmitters, help troubleshoot problems with coverage area, and verify coverage of self-organizing networks.
The measurement suite has a U.S. price of $10,075. Separately, the RF measurement option is $1,250, modulation quality option is $6,950, and the OTA option is $1,875. Delivery is 8-10 weeks ARO.
