Anritsu Fields WiMax Tester

MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Anritsu Company introduces Fixed WiMAX (802.16-2004) test options for its MT8222A BTS Master that make the analyzer the first handheld field solution for measuring WiMAX. The Fixed WiMAX test options, for RF measurements and demodulation, expand the analysis capability of the BTS Master, which already features cable and antenna analysis, spectrum analysis, power meter, interference analysis, Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT), channel scanner, and power monitor.

The Fixed WiMAX options make the BTS Master a single-instrument solution for engineers, technicians, and contractors responsible for the deployment of WiMAX networks. With the Fixed WiMAX RF measurements option, the BTS Master can measure the transmitted signal strength and signal shape of the selected BTS transmission. The option includes familiar channel spectrum, power versus time, ACPR, and RF summary screens. The Fixed WiMAX Demodulator option analyzes OFDM signals and displays detailed measurements for evaluating transmitter modulation performance.

All the inherent advantages of the BTS Master design, including a large display, lightweight (9 pounds) and durability, are brought to Fixed WiMAX measurements because of the new options. The BTS Master’s popular Pass/Fail Mode can be used with the options as well. With this feature, technicians can select a test procedure and the BTS Master displays the test results in table format with clear PASS or FAIL indications that include min/max thresholds and actual measured results.
