Anritsu introduces modular, scalable remote spectrum monitor

Anritsu company said it has ushered in a new era of field wireless testing with the introduction of Remote Spectrum Monitor, a platform of modular and scalable products that helps operators generate a greater return on their multi-billion dollar spectrum investments and maximizes network capacity to meet consumer demand.

Designed without a display or keyboard, Remote Spectrum Monitor automates the method of conducting radio surveillance, interference detection, and government spectrum policy enforcement while bringing greater flexibilities and cost efficiencies to network management.

“Operators have asked for a scalable and integrated solution to meet the test needs of their wireless network from a performance and cost perspective. Additionally, government regulators are often interested in monitoring the spectrum for illegal or unlicensed broadcasts. Anritsu addresses these requirements with Remote Spectrum Monitor, a bundled solution that provides an efficient platform that is flexible and expandable to evolve along with networks,” said Gerald Ostheimer, Anritsu Corporate Vice President/General Manager.

emote Spectrum Monitor features two spectrum monitor modules at introduction. Each module has power of arrival (POA) algorithms to monitor for interference and approximate the position where the interfering signal is being generated.

Anritsu is the United States subsidiary of Anritsu Corporation, a global provider of innovative communications test and measurement solutions for 120 years.
