Anritsu Company Introduces First Handheld Mobile WiMAX Test Solution for Network Deployment, Installation, and Maintenance

    MORGAN HILL, CALIF., September 18 /CNW/ - Anritsu Company introduces the
first Mobile WiMAX handheld test solution specifically designed for deploying,
installing, and maintaining Mobile WiMAX networks. Incorporated into Anritsu's
award-winning BTS Master and Spectrum Master platforms, the Mobile WiMAX test
capability provides field engineers, technicians and contractors with an easy
and highly accurate method for conducting RF, demodulation, and Over-The-Air
(OTA) measurements on WiMAX signals.

    The Mobile WiMAX measurement capability has been designed into three
options to provide users with flexibility. The Mobile WiMAX RF Measurements
option can be used to measure the transmitted signal strength and signal shape
of a transmitter. When configured with the RF Measurement option, the handheld
analyzers can conduct Channel Spectrum, Power versus Time (with 5 ms and 10 ms
frame lengths), and ACPR measurements. RF summary screens can also be
displayed with the option.

    Engineers and technicians can use the Mobile WiMAX Demodulator to analyze
OFDMA signals and display detailed measurements for evaluating transmitter
modulation performance. The measurement screens that can be displayed are
constellation (QPSK, 16 QAM, 64 QAM), spectral flatness, EVM versus
subcarrier, EVM versus symbol, DL MAP with automatic decoding, and modulation

    A channel power monitor measurement is part of the Mobile WiMAX OTA
option and allows a specific channel's power over time and specified interval
to be analyzed. This feature can be combined with a GPS feature so that
measurement data can include GPS location and time data for plotting on a map.
Anritsu's powerful Master Software Tools enable easy integration into MapInfo
Professional(R) and Microsoft MapPoint maps.

    All the options can be used with the MT8222A BTS Master, and the Spectrum
Master MS2721B, MS2723B, and MS2724B analyzers. Weighing less than nine
pounds, the MT8222A is the smallest, lightest, and most economical handheld
solution for complete 2G/3G/4G base station testing. The MS2721B, MS2723B, and
MS2724B are the most advanced ultra-portable 7.1 GHz, 13 GHz, and 20 GHz
spectrum analyzers on the market.

    The introduction of the Mobile WiMAX test and analysis capability
continues Anritsu's commitment to providing test solutions designed to
expedite the deployment of new technologies. Anritsu introduced the world's
first handheld Fixed WiMAX test solution earlier this year. Anritsu also has
test solutions that can be used during the design and manufacture of WiMAX
devices and systems.

    Delivery is 4-6 weeks ARO at introduction and 2-4 weeks after two months.
