New research by engineers from the Universities of Bristol and Lund, working alongside National Instruments (NI), has demonstrated how a massive antenna system can offer a 12-fold increase in spectrum efficiency compared with current 4G cellular technology.
Tektronix Inc., a worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, has expanded its line of disruptive USB-based real-time spectrum analyzers with 4 new higher-performance models targeting design, spectrum management and wireless transmitter installation and maintenance applications.
The Communications Authority of Kenya commissioned its new spectrum management and monitoring system (SMMS) from Rohde & Schwarz in March 2016. The solution includes both mobile and stationary components, which will be implemented across the country to regulate the frequency spectrum.
On March 22, individuals with a vested interest in the reliability, affordability and innovative uses of mobile Internet connectivity, will gather at the Dynamic Spectrum Sharing Summit + Demo at the Las Vegas Convention Center to discuss new models for spectrum utilization.The event will be held in conjunction with IWCE 2016, which is scheduled to take place March 21-25, 2016.
On 26 February 2016 the International Telecommunication Union group engaged with developing International Mobile Telecommunication systems met to further develop IMT-2020, the standard for 5G mobile systems.
CRFS, a leader in RF spectrum monitoring solutions, has supplied NASA Kennedy Space Center with RFeye real-time signal monitoring, direction finding and geolocation systems. The NASA Electromagnetic Lab (EML) provides ground and flight systems with radio frequency detection, electromagnetic interference troubleshooting, and electromagnetic interference triangulation.Their mission includes 24/7 monitoring of RF emissions across the site to ensure safety and to mitigate undesirable signals interference.
Anritsu Co. continues to expand its industry-leading field test portfolio with the introduction of the MS27101A Remote Spectrum Monitor. The most recent edition to Anritsu’s interference detecting tools, the MS27101A can be used with Anritsu’s Vision™ software to create a highly accurate remote solution for government regulators and university lab researchers to identify interference patterns, record spectrum history and geo-locate the sources of problem signals to mitigate interference issues and identify illegal or unlicensed signal activity.
Spectrum has released the single channel M4i.6630-x8 and dual channel M4i.6631-x8 arbitrary waveform generators cards capable of outputting electronic signals at rates of up to 1.25 GS/s with 16-bit vertical resolution.
EchoStar Mobile Ltd. (EML), a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corp., announced that the global wireless standards body, Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), approved Band 65 to standardize additional European spectrum for broadband wireless services.
