Base Station Analyzer: BTS Master MT8220TSource: Anritsu Company
The MT8220T BTS Master base station analyzer comprises a cable and antenna analyzer, an internal power meter, and an ultra-sensitive spectrum analyzer and offers comprehensive wireless measurements, now including LTE-A carrier aggregation analysis, and sophisticated interference tracking providing all base transceiver testing capability in one, easy-to-use instrument, to ensure key network performance indicators are consistently met.
The BTS Master MT8220T is Anritsu’s third-generation high-performance handheld base station analyzer specifically developed to advance the support of 4G wireless networks, as well as legacy 2G and 3G networks. An all-in-one solution, the BTS Master features 30 analyzers in a single instrument.
New to the LTE measurement suite is LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA) analysis that allows technicians to conduct highly accurate and efficient measurements during network deployment and maintenance. With the new capability, the MT8220T can conduct key LTE-Advanced CA measurements for all active component carriers (CCs) and display them simultaneously on the same screen, allowing users to quickly and accurately verify LTE-Advanced CA field installation.
Many LTE-Advanced CA measurements have been automated for simplicity and efficiency. The MT8220T automatically detects cyclic prefix configuration to simplify user setup and prevent measurement errors. An Auto Range feature automatically optimizes the analyzer configuration for each tuned CC to eliminate user intervention and increase measurement throughput. Automatic MIMO detection enables remote over-the-air (OTA) MIMO verification for all CCs, as well as absolute and delta RS power measurements. Additionally, TAE measurements can be made to troubleshoot and correct excessive timing offsets between CCs. All measurements can be performed OTA with high accuracy, due the BTS Master MT8220T’s superior >25 dB scanner dynamic range.
