VIAVI Solutions is a driving force in 5G, partnering with the world’s top communication providers and network equipment manufacturers since the technology’s inception. The result of that long-standing collaboration is deep expertise in test process automation that brings unparalleled efficiency for developing, enabling, assuring, and optimizing networks with speed and success in both the lab and the field. The VIAVI portfolio of industry-leading 5G testing solutions includes TM500, TeraVM, T-BERD®/MTS, CellAdvisor, NITRO Mobile and 3Z RF Vision brands. Only VIAVI offers complete 5G solutions for validation, verification, and visibility.
VIAVI CellAdvisor 5G is the industry’s most easy-to-use, innovative, and comprehensive base station analyzer. It is the ideal field-portable solution to validate and deploy 5G radio access networks. Its combination of real-time spectrum analysis and 5G beam analysis, as well as the ability to test fiber, coax, and air interfaces, makes it one of the most versatile cell site test solutions available.
Whether you are performing signal analysis, interference analysis, or just inspecting fiber connections, this one instrument can do it all. Its easy-to-use interface, complemented by cloud-enabled VIAVI StrataSync, makes it simple to create reports and close projects fast.
The VIAVI OneAdvisor 800 is designed to simplify the evolving network test needs of service providers, datacenters, field technicians and contractors as they deploy, groom, and maintain a wide variety of wireline and wireless networks. The modular design of OneAdvisor 800 allows network technicians to easily switch between a multitude of test scenarios including transmission protocol, fiber, or over the air RF signals.
For example, for teams looking to scale 5G or maintain 4G/3G, OneAdvisor 800 allows the testing of fiber, RF, and CPRI/Ethernet from a single instrument, replacing multiple independent tools (OTDR, CAA, Fiber Scope, RF spectrum analyzer) and significantly reduces the total cost of ownership. Likewise, datacenter technicians with OneAdvisor 800s in different locations can run an OTDR trace between facilities then test the quality of 400G transmission with the same instrument. The OneAdvisor 800 simplifies both test scenarios, plus many more.
The instrument’s workflow user interface carefully guides technicians through a pre-configured common test process, making sure that technicians complete the job in the same way and to the same specifications. With OneAdvisor 800, users get built-in guidance, automatic test configuration, pass/fail results, and a single report every time, at every site.
OneAdvisor 800: One solution. One process. One report.
CellAdvisor Base Station Analyzers support RFoCPRI and NB-IoT testing, and offer dual-port capability, cable and antenna analysis / spectrum analysis / interference analysis / signal analysis / demodulation and RF / optical power meters and optional fiber inspection in a rugged, portable, cloud-enabled instrument.
CellAdvisor Cable and Antenna Analyzers provide integrated solutions for line sweep measurement, RF / optical power measurements, and fiber inspection, in a lightweight, cloud-enabled instrument ideal for cell site installation.
The majority of problems in wireless networks occur at the base station infrastructure, composed of the antenna system, cables, and connectors and they are typically related to the cable feed-line (coax or fiber). Contamination in fiber connectors is the most common problem associated with Fiber. All wireless networks with fiber based feed-lines require the verification of both RF and Fiber. Until now multiple instruments were used for these tests, one for RF and another for Fiber, and the JD720C series cable and antenna analyzer is the first cable and antenna analyzer that provides an integrated solution for fiber and coax, being the most versatile and optimal instrument to properly service and install cell sites.
Identifying and rectifying interference issues in a mobile environment is a challenging but critical task. Mobile users near the interference source will experience degraded call success rates, increased dropped calls, decreased battery life, poor voice quality, and reduced data throughput. Detecting, locating, and finally eliminating sources of RF interference is critical to maintaining good user experience throughout the network.
VIAVI InterferenceAdvisor™, our fully automated spectrum clearing and interference hunting solution, is the most user-friendly solution available today. Simple to set up and completely intuitive, InterferenceAdvisor allows one RF engineer to easily identify and locate an interference source with minimal effort: voice prompts simply direct the engineer to the source of interference. What used to take days to troubleshoot can now be done in hours by following a few simple steps.
InterferenceAdvisor is versatile tool that can help in isolating all types of RF interference for common cellular channels.
During the installation of your wireless network, antenna alignment counts. Companies spend millions of dollars to plan and design wireless and microwave networks. As you plan the coverage objectives, it is critically important that antenna alignment is accurately implemented during the installation. Otherwise, it will result in coverage gaps, network performance degradation and loss of revenue. It is equally important that installers are equipped with an effective and reliable antenna alignment tool. This gives you the confidence that the job was performed as indicated on the RF design specifications.
3Z RF Vision is an innovative antenna alignment tool that helps users to easily perform accurate antenna alignment on panel and microwave point-to-point antennas. With its compact size, rugged design, user friendly GUI, unique reporting capabilities, and integrated camera, 3Z RF Vision has paved the future for antenna alignment.
IoA – IoT for Antennas is an IoT antenna sensor that monitors alignment in three dimensions: azimuth, tilt, and roll. IoA utilizes LTE CAT-M1/NBIoT to alert of undesired changes to all antennas being monitored.
