In order to better understand the needs of telecom technicians involved in the deployment and maintenance of the modern mobile network infrastructure, Microlease has just introduced a new solution: Wireless Tool Box.
The multiplicity of communication standards in place for wireless networks (LTE, UMTS, GSM-900, DSC-1800 and in many cases TETRA) makes the task of test technicians particularly difficult. This problem is compounded by the variety of base station topologies that are beginning to apply, such as remote radio heads, fiber-to-antenna and hybrid systems (with a mixture of fiber optic and coaxial cables). But that's not all, the clutter of networks reduces bandwidth, while the generalization of site-sharing generates a lot of interference.
In the face of a plethora of technologies and ever-increasing performance expectations, it is essential that technicians have access to a wide range of instruments in order to be able to handle the most advanced features and ensure the accuracy of services. As a result, Microlease now offers a complete rental kit with all the necessary elements, which then allows you to choose the best options from a very wide selection and available in stock. The rental offers optimal flexibility, as items can be returned when they are no longer in use or exchanged for other devices if the test settings change.
Microlease Wireless Tool Box includes:
- Cable and antenna testers for fiber optic testing, such as Viavi's Cell Advisor (which can be praised with optical power measurement functionality).
- Transmission testers, such as EXFO's FTB-880-V2, for the evaluation of wireless communications protocols developed by consortia (CPRI, OBSAI, etc.).
- Time optical reflectometers (OTDRs), such as Anritsu's MT9090, to ensure that the installed optical fibers match the desired quality.
- 3Z and Kathrein ultra-portable antenna alignment systems.
- Portable radiation monitoring devices, such as Radman's EMS-20, to protect personnel during field operations.
- Magnetic field strength measurement equipment, such as Narda's SRM-3006.
- Advanced tools to facilitate base station integration, including Ascom's TEMS Pocket and SwissQuall's Qualipoc.
- Finally, it is important to combat passive inter-modulation (PIM) which is an emerging problem on next-generation networks. Dual-band PIM analyzers, such as Kaelus' ITA series, are becoming increasingly popular, as single-frequency measurements may not be adapted.
