Understanding PIM

A subtle, but widespread, cause of interference in radio frequency networks in general, and cellular networks in particular, is something called passive intermodulation, or PIM. This paper explains what PIM is, common sources of PIM, how PIM is identified and tested, and the different ways in which PIM sources can be located in the field.

Interference hunting in TDD networks

In time division duplex (TDD) networks, the downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) use the same frequency band in different timeslots. When viewing such TDD signals on a conventional spectrum display, it is impossible to differentiate the two as well as any other unwanted signals present in the same spectrum. This makes interference hunting extremely difficult.… Read more »

Video: Understanding PIM

This video explains the basic technical principles behind Passive Intermodulation (PIM), why PIM is an issue in wireless communications, and how to test PIM in the field.
Webinars

Ensure successful 5G site testing and acceptance

This webinar uses a real case study from the first pervasive 5G network in Europe to examine the importance of site acceptance testing, identify the various deployment scenarios and define an efficient methodology to test the associated KPIs to ensure delivery of QoE to the 5G end user.

Prepare your Spectrum for 5G Deployment

The rollout of 5G NR will initiate a worldwide deployment in an unknown radio environment where unwanted transmitters can degrade end-user QoE and in some cases cause outages of critical services. Prior to deployment, operators need to ensure the radio environment is free from interference by conducting spectral clearance and interference hunting. This webinar defines… Read more »
