Wireless Install & Maintenance includes drive tests, base station test sets, cable and antenna analysers, antenna alignment kits, and PIM testers. Drive test equipment supports all major mobile wireless technologies, from legacy networks to 4G and LTE; drive test applications include detailed network troubleshooting and network coverage and performance analysis.
As new networks continue to be built, service at base stations is critical and must be efficient.
Handheld cable and antenna analyzers help field technicians perform field verification and fault location on a wide variety of applications like GSM, CDMA, UMTS, and LTE, and tower technicians use antenna path alignment test sets to accurately align antennas and optimize link reliability during installation. Antenna alignment kits provide GPS, tilt, roll, and elevation measurements to ensure proper antenna orientation and better provide signal coverage. Passive Intermodulation, or PIM testing is a superior quality control tool that is being required by more and more carriers with the addition or replacement of antennas and new site construction. We can supply all of these types of electronic test equipment for your field and site testing needs.
Cable certification with LAN Cable Testers meets the requirements of TIA-568-B and ISO 11801:2002 and ensures maximum success in building installations. Fiber characterization helps carriers and enterprises make critical decisions regarding their fiber networks through increased data rates, broader wavelength ranges, component quality checks, and a plethora of application standards. Fiber characterization is complete end-to-end testing that measures overall fiber quality: It measures the properties of a fiber-optic installation for losses, dispersions, and reflections, which enables quick verification of the fiber’s integrity and capacity, and identifies areas that require recommendations for fiber network maintenance and improvements. Full fiber characterization includes connector end-face inspection, insertion loss measurements, return loss measurements, OTDR testing, chromatic dispersion testing, polarization mode dispersion testing, and spectral attenuation. Fusion splicing—the joining together of two fiber-optic cables or strands—is performed to restore fiber-optic cables that have been damaged during transport or installation. Fiber inspection probes ensure that connectors and adapters are clean and free of defects is where accurate testing starts. Transport testing requires specialized test sets that hook into a LAN/WAN network and analyse its traffic.
