October 3, 2013 – Fluke Networks has announced AirMagnet Spectrum ESTM, the industry’s first spectrum analysis tool specifically designed to streamline in-field testing and troubleshooting of cellular offload deployments, including Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) and Small Cells.
AirMagnet Spectrum ES offers portability, affordability and enhanced in-field productivity features. This includes the industry’s first automated new signature detection and location of RF interference sources, automated location-specific carrier and technology spectrum scan setup and intuitive network visibility, which is needed to verify and troubleshoot at every stage of the project lifecycle. These features help ensure offload deployment and troubleshooting are done quickly and correctly.
With the majority of mobile traffic originating from within buildings, the ongoing explosion in mobile data usage, the transition from 3G to LTE and the need for consistent coverage and capacity in commercial settings, the market is experiencing strong growth in infrastructure to offload macro cellular traffic. Yet these DAS, Small Cell and Wi-Fi deployments have lacked a tool that is actually designed around the portability, affordability and in-field testing features necessary for efficient multi-team installation projects at the customer site. As a result they have had to rely on sharing bulky and expensive lab-based test equipment that lacks the right functionality, slowing deployments and often leading to costly retest and rework.
