    Satellite M2M, The IoT, And The Public Sector

    As machine-to-machine and Internet of Things technologies grow congruent with daily life, satellite-based IoT is increasingly relevant to the mix. Given that IoT devices are primarily used to eliminate the need for human interface, as well as provide real-time automated monitoring and control across distances, it’s often essential to enable its functioning in remote regions that lie outside the range of terrestrial network coverage.

5G WHITE PAPERS, APPLICATION NOTES, CASE STUDIES, & BROCHURES

  • Conducted And Over The Air Antenna Array Testing – The Way To 5G

    5G networks need to be designed to offer more capacity and flexibility while lowering overall systems operation expenses. This paper discusses various test solutions that can address current and future requirements for antenna verification, including conducted and over-the-air test methods.

  • Utilizing VSS Test Benches For Verizon 5G Technical Forum Downlink System

    Proposals for next-gen 5G waveforms are converging towards using cyclic-prefix orthagonal frequency division multiplexing (CP-OFDM) for 5G New Radio (NR). CP-OFDM is used by LTE and ranks best on compatibility with multi-antenna technologies, high spectral efficiency, and low implementation complexity. 

  • 5G Fixed Wireless Radio Validation Case Study

    Anritsu recently hosted a major network equipment manufacturer (NEM) at our factory in Morgan Hill, CA USA to perform some early validation of their 28 GHz 5G radios. The application is to use radios for 5G fixed wireless access to compete with fiber to the home. The NEM required the use of the Anritsu Spectrum Master™ MS2720T spectrum analyzer to test the performance of these next-generation 28 GHz 5G radios in a coverage mapping exercise. The spectrum analyzer was used to measure key parameters of the NEM prototype radio in a variety of real-world environments.

  • High-Efficiency Front-End For Pico And Modular Large Base Stations At LTE Bands 1 And 7

    The key to improving energy efficiency lies, fundamentally, in the use of active antennas. However, duplex operation of cellular phones greatly distorts the desired performance of active antennas. To correct this, one must deploy self-diplexed antennas.
