Anritsu Corporation has announced that it has been honored with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) Award for New Product Innovation for its MW82119A PIM Master.
Frost & Sullivan explained that after evaluating the passive intermodulation (PIM) test equipment market, it found that Anritsu (News - Alert) had demonstrated prowess in the wireless test equipment market, with a deep understanding of environmental conditions in field applications.
Hirokazu Hashimoto, president of Anritsu Corporation, remarked, “Anritsu is honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for global new product innovation. Our MW82119A PIM Master has become the de facto industry standard for field test solutions addressing one of today’s biggest challenges in deploying, installing, and maintaining wireless networks. PIM Master also continues our tradition of developing leading-edge test solutions that meet customer needs, a commitment that is recognized by Frost & Sullivan.”
Passive intermodulation (PIM) shows up as a set of unwanted signals created by the mixing of two or more RF signals in a non-linear device, such as in a loose or corroded connector, which may result in fake signals.
The MW82119A PIM Master is a battery-operated, high power PIM testing solution for major wireless standards around the globe. It is very small in size and easy to carry, the company explained, making it more suitable for verifying PIM performance at difficult to access sites such as Remote Radio Head (RRH) installations or indoor Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).
The PIM Master is also packed with Distance-to-PIM (DTP) technology for accurately determining the location of PIM faults, both inside the feed system as well as beyond the antenna. The technology can be leveraged rapidly, which in turn leads to faster repairs and lower costs.
Frost & Sullivan thus believes that the MW82119A PIM Master places Anritsu in a superior position in the competitive landscape of the portable field PIM test industry.
