Global revenue for carrier Wi-Fi access points and controllers will reach $2.2 billion in 2017 to reach a level equivalent to almost one-half of the traditional enterprise or consumer/SoHo Wi-Fi segments in the same period.
Aeris® Communications, the only cellular carrier built exclusively for machines, announced it has partnered with Novotech Technologies, a leading global distributor of wireless, machine-to-machine (M2M) products, services and solutions, to deliver M2M connectivity services. With this partnership, Novotech will begin distributing products connected by Aeris’ intelligent machine framework.
Anritsu Co. announces the industry’s first call-based LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation testing capability that can be integrated into its MD8430A LTE Signaling Tester. The software-only upgrade leverages the four available RFs in the MD8430A, and provides 300 MB/s downlink throughput using two 2x2 MIMO Component Carriers (CCs).
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced that the TM500 LTE-A Test Mobile now supports carrier aggregation for Time Division Duplex (TDD), in addition to its existing Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) capability. Carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-A, allows multiple carriers comprised of either contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum to be added together, allowing wider channel bandwidths - and higher data rates - to be achieved.
Rohde & Schwarz now offers a new R&S FSW signal and spectrum analyzer that covers the frequency range from 2 Hz to 43.5 GHz. Its high RF dynamic range, measurement speed and numerous functions make the R&S FSW43 an excellent microwave analyzer. The displayed average noise level of –164 dBm with preamplifier switched on is very low in the microwave range. With a phase noise of –117 dBc (Hz) at 40 GHz and 10 kHz carrier offset, the analyzer allows high-sensitivity measurements even close to the carrier, e.g. on radar signals.

Microlab, a Wireless Telecom Group company,is introducing a new product line for both in-Building and outdoor DAS applications, the DCC Series™ DAS Carrier Conditioners. These products are equally suited for passive DAS venues and for active fiber DAS installations.
AWT Global has launched a new line of portable passive intermodulation (PIM) testers with an extended carrier power range: the PIM+ series. These systems are equally suited for testing macro cells as well as outdoor and in-building DAS installations. While 2 x 20 W (2 x 43 dBm) carrier power is the reference for standard for PIM test systems, the new PIM+ offers an extended adjustable power range of +15 dBm to +44 dBm for each carrier.
