Mobile phones are evolving into rich-content multimedia terminals supporting high-speed communications based on the new 3GPP LTE standard. The MD8430A Signalling Tester is an essential base station simulator, for testing LTE chipsets and mobile terminals. It is the perfect test solution for bringing LTE terminals to market as quickly as possible, based on Anritsu’s extensive knowledge of cellular mobile technologies.
Application Note: Application Guide To RF Coaxial Connectors And Cables
RF coaxial connectors provide vital RF links in communications, broadcast, EMC testing, commercial and military, as well as test and measurement fields. This article provides guidance and insight in choosing connectors best suited to accommodate your specific application.
Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) Speech Quality Measurements
This Rohde & Schwarz application note and associated application software may be used to conduct psychoacoustic speech quality evaluation for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) connections. The measurements are based on recommendations ITU-T P.862 and ITU-T P.863, respectively. The R&S CMWrun Software Sequencer Tool example sequences perform decoder / encoder calibration, connection setup for the UE under test and subsequent speech quality analysis under IP impairment conditions.
Wireless Dose-Compliance Monitoring In Drug-Delivery Devices
Incorporating wireless technology into medical devices is about more than just keeping up with the hottest technology trends; the benefits are real and significant, especially with regard to monitoring and encouraging dose compliance in the pharmaceutical and medical realm. Prior to embarking on the development of a wireless-enabled drug-delivery device, however, it is crucial to know what, specifically, the benefits are, and exactly what kinds of challenges and design considerations must be taken into account.
Is Wi-Fi More Dangerous Than We Think?
A little known fact about the electronic devices we use is that the radio frequency electromagnetic fields they generate are classified as Class 2B Carcinogens by the World Health Organization. New analysis by researchers contends that children are particularly susceptible to this type of radiation.
Google Lobbies For 3.5 GHz Band To Provide Cheaper Wireless
With the intent of making alternative wireless services available, Google is lobbying the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to open up the mostly vacant 3.5 GHz spectrum. Vast amounts of low-cost bandwidth could be available at a price that would undercut services from larger carriers. As prices for access to traditional wireless spectrums continue to soar, this alternative could be a boon for consumers.
