  • Understanding PIM Testing (Part 2 of 2)

    As discussed in part one of this blog series, Passive Intermodulation (PIM) is becoming more and more important as wireless users demand data with high speeds. It affects network speed and performance, therefore, needs to be actively monitored, making PIM testing a basic requirement. This is especially true today because of fourth generation (4G) networks […]

  • Understanding PIM Testing (Part 1 of 2)

    What is PIM? Today’s mobile handset users expect consistently high throughput from their devices and are always pushing current networks to their limit. PIM is a series of unwanted but related frequencies that occur when two or more frequencies pass through a nonlinear device or junction. PIM is noise, interference and a quality indicator. Causes […]

  • Considerations When Designing a Neutral Host DAS

    Wireless cellular customers depend on the mobility of their devices wherever they go. This also puts added pressure on businesses to provide a variety of wireless technologies within their building space. The resolution is a neutral host DAS; however, specific design considerations should be used to ensure long-term system growth. Consider the following when designing […]

  • DWDM – Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing

    Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) is a technology that puts data from different sources together on an optical fiber, with each signal carried at the same time on its own separate light wavelength. Using DWDM, up to 80 separate wavelengths or channels of data can be multiplexed into a light stream transmitted on a single optical fiber. […]
