Anritsu combines LTE and 802.11ac wireless LAN tests
Anritsu has introduced software suites supporting LTE-Advanced 4G mobile phone systems as well as IEEE802.11ac wireless LAN devices for its MS269xA/ MS2830A signal analyser series and MG3710A/MG3700A vector signal generators.
The intention is to provide support for both LTE-Advanced and IEEE802.11ac wireless LAN so one unit supports evaluation of LTE-Advanced FDD mobile basestations.
The MX269028A software package is bundled with each of the MS269xA/MS2830A main frames for evaluating the characteristics of signals sent from IEEE802.11ac wireless LAN appliances.
The MS269xA series can measure signal bandwidths of up to 160MHz in the IEEE802.11ac signal bandwidth specifications; the MS2830A can measure signal bandwidths of up to 80MHz.
