The MS27100A is designed to facilitate the identification and removal of illegal or unlicensed interference signals. Problem signals can be identified as they occur in real time by monitoring a spectrum continuously. Unwanted signal activity and their patterns can also be observed, which provides an efficient way to characterize and locate the source of the interference problem.
The MS27100A is also used to characterize spectrum occupancy. Government regulators and operators are often interested in determining the usage rate for various frequency bands. Monitoring these frequencies provides the information needed to optimize spectrum for maximum utilization. The spectrum can be re-purposed for other applications, or multiplexed with other signals using cognitive radio techniques.
Spectrum monitoring can assist in the enforcement of compliance with government regulations and is used by police, fire fighters, air traffic control, military, and emergency services who must all have access to communications free of impediments and distortion.
The MS27100A is ideally suited for placement in racks where space is at a premium with its small form factor. The MS27100A also supports an IF output (140 MHz) which can be used for further processing by the user.
