The World Radiocommunication Conference 2012 (WRC-12) has opened in Geneva, Switzerland, to review and revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of radio frequency spectrum and satellite orbits.
CRFS announces the public launch of its RFeye® real-time spectrum monitoring and white spaces tracking network. This pilot network has been trialled by CRFS initially in Cambridge as part of the Cambridge TV White Spaces trial. CRFS now plans to roll out a larger network in London to coincide with the various major events being held in London in July and August.
Wireless experts from across the industry met to define Weightless and the inner workings of the world’s global machine communications standard at the first plenary session to discuss the Weightless machine-to-machine communications standard for white space spectrum.
Anritsu Co. introduces a tracking generator for its Spectrum Master™ MS2711E, MS2712E, and MS2713E models that enhances the overall performance of the handheld analyzers.
Alcatel-Lucent has announced that the Smart-RF research project undertaken by a consortium of companies led by Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent’s research arm, achieved a major breakthrough for base station deployment. The group developed the technical foundation for a new reconfigurable radio frequency transmitter capable of supporting different wireless standards within a single radio frequency band.
The Rohde & Schwarz R&S FSW-K6 pulse measurement option for the R&S FSW series of high-performance signal and spectrum analyzers is an excellent choice for evaluating the performance of radar systems and all other applications that employ pulsed signals. When coupled with the MultiView capabilities of the R&S FSW series, multiple spectrum analyzer measurements can be run, viewed, and updated on a single screen giving the user a complete overview of system performance.
Anritsu Co. introduced a tracking generator for its Spectrum Master™ MS2711E, MS2712E, and MS2713E models that enhances the overall performance of the handheld analyzers, while making it easier and faster for field technicians to conduct additional measurements.
Anritsu Co. introduces a burst detection enhancement for its MS272xC Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzer that makes it easier for field engineers and technicians to find narrow signals that may cause interference and adversely affect the performance of wireless networks. The Burst Detect mode extends the industry-leading performance of the MS272xC Spectrum Master analyzers, which feature the industry’s first 32 GHz and 43 GHz models, giving users powerful test tools for their field requirements.
Rohde & Schwarz's new R&S ESR test receiver is available in two different models for frequencies ranging from 10 Hz to 3 GHz or 7 GHz to meet the requirements of all users who perform EMC certification on commercial equipment.
Two thirds of small cell base stations will be deployed in bands above 2.2 GHz by 2016, compared to fewer than 40 percent in 2013, according to the latest research report by Maravedis-Rethink entitled, "Transforming the Mobile Data Network: Operator Strategies for Profitable Small Cell Networks 2012-2016," based on a global survey of mobile operators.
