Techniques for Precise Interference Measurements in the Field

1   Hour | Webcast - recorded | Where & When


In wireless systems, interference in the wireless channel can be quite problematic, degrading the reception of desired signals. It can originate from a variety of intentional, unintentional and incidental radiators and occurs in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum. With the growing scarcity of radio frequency spectrum and ongoing efforts to improve its utilization for the highest capacity and performance (e.g., by sharing or reuse), wireless communication systems must now operate under a limited amount of radio interference. Unfortunately, as demand for spectrum increases so too does wireless system interference. As a result, the identification and reduction of interference has become absolutely essential to the proper operation of all wireless systems. Of course, testing interference in a wireless environment is no easy task, demanding new measurement techniques and placing added requirements on existing measurement instrumentation. Addressing it effectively requires an advanced measurement tool like a high-performance spectrum analyzer, to evaluate, monitor and manage the interference levels between various wireless systems. This webcast will focus on making these measurements using a high performance portable spectrum analyzer.


Field Service or Installation and Maintenance Managers, Engineers or Technicians in the wireless service, military, medical or regulatory agency areas who are responsible for operating or maintaining their communication infrastructure


Tom Hoppin , Business Development Engineer, Agilent Technologies Component Test Division

Tom started his working career as an electronic aviation technician in the US Marine Corps. After his service in 1973, he joined Hewlett-Packard as a manufacturing technician. During his career at HP, he moved from manufacturing to production engineering and was promoted to engineer in 1989. Since then, he has held a number of engineering and management roles at HP and Keysight, focused on test system design and spectrum analysis. Tom retired in 2009 and has returned to Agilent as a contract application engineer, helping to launch the new FieldFox handheld analyzers. Tom enjoys woodworking, cycling and sailing
