LTE differs from previous cellular technologies primarily in terms of frequency allocations, bandwidths and modulation types. This has important ramifications for operators of cable systems with regard to the possibility of both ingress and egress interference,
Featuring a compact and lightweight design, the reliable R&S®PR100 features state-of-the-
Unwanted interference can affect signals in several ways. Ingress interference can be most effectively mitigated by better equipment design (STB/modem) and improvement of outdoor and indoor cable plant. Egress interference can have a substantial impact on the operation of LTE services in licensed 700MHz spectrum and has both technical as well as regulatory consequences. Previous techniques and tools used to measure egress at a single frequency in the VHF aeronautical band have shown themselves to be insufficient for diagnosing or locating issues in the 700MHz band, although the mitigation methods for resolving egress remain the same for both frequency ranges.
The R&S®PR100 portable receivers advanced functions and control concept have been optimized for RFI, electrical interference and intermodulation interference monitoring tasks. The receiver combines portability, ease of operation and direction finding capabilities to provide an ideal solution for tracking down unwanted interference. Despite its compact design, the R&S®PR100 offers a wide range of functions otherwise available only in larger equipment with higher price points. Its favorable price/performance ratio makes it an indispensable instrument for all radio monitoring tasks where high mobility and cost efficiency are crucial.
The R&S®PR100 portable receiver features a built-in SD card for storage of measurements and provides LAN interface for remote control and data output. A 6.5" color screen clearly displays spectrums and spectrograms (waterfalls)
