Testing Passive Networks in a Distributed Antenna System

With more than 80 % of cellular traffic coming from inside a building, distributed antenna systems (DAS) have become increasingly more popular. However, without a sound testing methodology, these systems can be complex to test. Request your free poster and download the pdf to learn more about DAS and how to test these systems.

Comparing CW and low duty cycle passive intermodulation (PIM) measurements

The measurement technique used by a PIM analyzer is CW or low duty cycle. The only traceable device available to independently validate a PIM analyzer’s measurement accuracy in the field is a PIM standard. For this technical discussion, the measurement techniques are explored and explained along with the fact that CW and LDC offer similar… Read more »
