Although the first mobile radio networks were upgraded to high speed packet access (HSPA) only a short time ago, the next advance in UMTS – UMTS long-term evolution (LTE) – is already around the corner.
With its new analog R&S SMF100A microwave signal generator, Rohde & Schwarz is setting new standards for single-sideband (SSB) phase noise. A unique SSB phase noise value of -115 dBc (at 10 GHz/10 kHz offset) makes the instrument ideal for a variety of telecommunications and radar applications.
According to estimates, the annual damage caused by industrial espionage in Germany alone amounts to billions of euros. To safeguard their know-how, security-conscious companies are already protecting their sensitive communications infrastructure against attacks by using appropriate equipment.
Rohde & Schwarz today announced that its R&S CMU200 universal communications tester now supports CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A, the latest enhancement to the CDMA2000 family of standards that are being deployed by wireless service providers throughout North America and the world.
