Transforming The Retail Experience: Top Four RF Opportunities

Retail is not just seeing a drop in demand. The coronavirus has also triggered a shift in consumer behavior as more spending moves from physical stores to online, even for products that people traditionally bought “offline.” 

Redefining 5G New Radio Drive Testing

As 5G NR networks are deployed, live network testing is needed to ensure network coverage and Quality of Experience (QoE). In addition, QoE testing in 5G NR will get more complicated due to changes in the network architecture. 

Expand Your Spectrum Monitoring Capability With Affordable Performance

This paper provides an overview of the most common spectrum monitoring applications and a review of the key requirements used to determine which spectrum analyzer meets their objectives.

Broadcast Field Measurement Products

For broadcast stations, field strength measurements must be made at known locations around the antenna system. These measurements should be made on a regular interval with a calibrated antenna. Measurements must be made of the station’s fundamental frequency as well as the side lobes and harmonics to meet the spectrum mask required by the regulatory body.
