Anritsu intros handheld base station analyzer
Anritsu Company introduced this week the Cell Master MT8212B, which integrates a CDMA/GSM transmitter analyzer, interference analyzer, channel scanner, and DS0/VF channel access.
The integration of these additional test capabilities provides RF engineers and field technicians with a single handheld instrument weighing less than five pounds that can be used to ensure proper deployment, installation and maintenance of GSM and CDMA networks, the company said.
Users can conduct all major RF measurements, such as channel power, frequency error, occupied bandwidth, and noise floor, on CDMA signals. For GSM applications, the Cell Master MT8212B has an option that allows the analyzer to conduct traditional RF measurements for power and frequency error, the company said. The MT8212B can also display time slot information on GSM signals.
