MT8222A BTS Master
The Fixed WiMAX options make the BTS Master a single-instrument solution for engineers, technicians, and contractors responsible for the deployment of WiMAX networks. With the Fixed WiMAX RF measurements option, the BTS Master can measure the transmitted signal strength and signal shape of the selected BTS transmission. The option includes familiar channel spectrum, power versus time, ACPR, and RF summary screens. The Fixed WiMAX Demodulator option analyzes OFDM signals and displays detailed measurements for evaluating transmitter modulation performance. All the inherent advantages of the BTS Master design, including a large display, lightweight (9 pounds) and durability, are brought to Fixed WiMAX measurements because of the new options. The BTS Master's popular Pass/Fail Mode can be used with the options as well. With this feature, technicians can select a test procedure and the BTS Master displays the test results in table format with clear PASS or FAIL indications that include min/max thresholds and actual measured results. Anritsu's Master Software Tools can also be used with the Fixed WiMAX options. The comprehensive data management and analysis software allows custom tests to be created and downloaded into the BTS Master to ensure performance of a WiMAX network. The BTS Master combines the functionality of a cable and antenna analyzer, spectrum analyzer, power meter, interference analyzer, channel scanner, transmitter analyzer, bias tee and T1 analyzer. In addition to Fixed WiMAX analysis, it can conduct WCDMA/HSDPA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE RF and demodulation, and WCDMA/HSDPA Over the Air (OTA) measurements. The Fixed WiMAX RF Measurements option price starts at $1,250 and the Fixed WiMAX Demodulation option starts at $4,950. The base MT8222A BTS Master's price starts at $18,950. Delivery is 6 to 8 weeks.
