As that growth continues, the need for test and measurement of backhaul systems is imperative.

Already, there are a number of companies and products featured in Testapedia, with a few standouts like:

  • TX130M+ from VeEX is a backhaul test solution with a multifunctional installation and maintenance tool that supports DSn/PDH, Metro Ethernet and synchronized packet networks.

  • Performance Monitoring for Mobile Networks from RAD provides monitoring and troubleshooting of backhaul performance and service activation tests.

  • Anritsu's Spectrum Analyzer/Signal Analyzer MS2840A, with an upper measurement frequency limit of 44.5 GHz, supports measurements for microwave wireless backhaul and other applications, like VHF/UHF and private mobile radio (PMR).
