The Keysight E6381A is a full featured, one-box test set designed to meet the needs of installation teams, service providers, and network equipment manufacturers. Building on the success of our previous generations of base station test equipment, the new test set heavily incorporates feedback from PCS and Cellular users. For example, the E6381A utilizes a large, bright, easy-to-read, electroluminescent display. A convenient connector section on the side of the test set allows unobtrusive, out-of-the-way hook up, as well as protects the connectors from damage. A suitcase form factor provides better portability. The new rugged design in-cludes a reliable membrane keypad, a gasketed display, and filtered airflow to resist dirt and moisture. The unit's enclosure provides for stand up operation, and helps protect itself from bumps and shocks.
The E6381A incorporates a user-friendly interface with one-key measurement execution. This interface, coupled with the test set's fast measurement speed and automated software for Ericsson, Lucent, and Nortel base stations, results in less off-line time and improved system performance. Errors due to test variability are reduced, and measurement data can be output to a printer or to the PCMCIA memory card. Additionally, new features and capabilities can be added to the E6381A without returning the unit to a service center. The test set's firmware is user upgrade-able via a PCMCIA card to flash memory. To complete the TDMA parametric test solution, Keysight Technologies also offers a new TDMA technician training program to provide install teams and service providers with a comprehensive understanding of base station test.
