FCC Opens Door To Dish's LTE-A Network, But Tech Hurdles Loom By Paul Kruczkowski, editor
The FCC delivered an early holiday gift to Dish Network when it finally granted the company’s year-old request to use its advanced wireless services (AWS-4) spectrum for terrestrial broadband mobile applications. The approval also could be a big gift to the wireless infrastructure industry and to the public, finally introducing much-needed competition into a wireless market dominated by a few major operators.

Interaction Of Intermodulation Products Between DUT And Spectrum Analyzer By Rohde & Schwarz
This white paper describes the interaction between intermodulation products generated by a device under test (DUT) and intermodulation products generated internally in a spectrum analyzer. The overall intermodulation distortion may be too optimistic or pessimistic. Examples demonstrating cancelling IM products and necessary steps to avoid an influence of the spectrum analyzer on the measurement results are outlined.
