Anritsu Co. introduces CPRI RF measurement capability in its market-leading E series of Site Master™, Spectrum Master™, and Cell Master™ handheld field analyzers that dramatically simplifies and lowers the cost of testing remote radio heads (RRHs) installed atop 4G towers. Solidifying Anritsu’s position as the industry leader in field test solutions, the new option reduces network OpEx by allowing wireless carrier engineers, technicians and contractors responsible for wireless networks to identify interference sources on the radio uplink at ground level, reducing the use of unnecessary and costly tower climbing crews.
With the CPRI RF Measurement option installed, the E series analyzers provide users with a number of advantages when installing, maintaining and optimizing wireless networks. Its best-in-class sweep speed is 10x faster than competitive solutions and allows the Anritsu solutions to capture all interfering signals, including intermittent interferers, easily. A Spectrum/Spectrogram Tune & Zoom function allows users to zoom into an area of interest on a displayed signal to more closely examine interfering signals and better identify their origin.
An Auto Detect function is also designed into the new CPRI RF Measurement option that automatically configures the CPRI link to minimize set up time and potential errors. This innovative feature, supported by preconfigured radio setups, dramatically simplifies the previously difficult task of ensuring that the test instrument matches the CPRI link.
The new CPRI RF Measurement option for the E series of handheld analyzers builds off the success of CPRI RF measurement capability previously developed for the Anritsu BTS Master™ base station analyzer, giving Anritsu the widest portfolio of CPRI RF test solutions on the market. For testing CPRI optical links, Anritsu offers the Network Master™ Pro MT1000A and Network Master Flex™ MT1100A optical transport testers to create a complete CPRI test portfolio.
Anritsu offers network operators and contractors a comprehensive line of field test solutions for the installation, maintenance, and optimization of 4G networks. Anritsu products and cloud-based services are focused on maximizing technician productivity and, consequently, control operating costs. They can be used to ensure wireless networks meet key performance indicators (KPI), thereby maximizing network operation and reducing customer churn.
