Field transport tester keeps pace with 100Gb/s data rates

Field transport tester keeps pace with 100Gb/s data rates
Producing equipment to test communications networks has to move forward at a breathless pace to keep up with the technology and its test requirements. Anritsu’s latest solution is the MT1100A Network Master Flex, a portable transport tester for optical networks which can measure client signals at data rates up to 100Gb/s and which is suitable for testing the next generation of 400Gb/s network equipment.

Recorder captures tunable IF signals up to 360MHz

Recorder captures tunable IF signals up to 360MHz
A recorder, capable of capturing a wide band of signals in real time to disk, has been introduced by Pentek. The RTR 2729A, designed for Talon RF/IF signal recording and playback systems, is equipped with a 3.6 GHz 12-bit A/D converter. With its DDC, the recorder can capture tunable IF signals with bandwidths up to 360MHz continuously, for over four hours.

Signal and spectrum analyser delivers faster measurement speeds

Signal and spectrum analyser delivers faster measurement speeds
High measurement speeds are crucial for production testing of wireless communications components and base station test systems. That’s why Rohde & Schwarz developed its new FPS signal and spectrum analyser specifically for these types of automated measurement applications. At just two height units (2 HU), the compact FPS takes up only half as much rack space as a conventional spectrum analyser.

3CC test upgrade allows data rates up to 450Mbit/s

3CC test upgrade allows data rates up to 450Mbit/s
Aeroflex’s TM500 LTE-A Test Mobile and the E500 Capacity Test System now both support the aggregation of three component carriers (3 CC). Carrier aggregation of 3 CC allows mobile network operators to achieve data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s on their LTE-A networks. 3 CC carrier aggregation enables network operators with limited contiguous frequency allocations to maximise 4G data speeds by combining these spectrum bands.
