- Wireless Telecom Group showcased its latest products and technologies which enable the development, deployment and test of next generation wireless communications and connectivity at IMS 2018 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
- For the first time at IMS (International Microwave Symposium) all four of the company’s brands, Boonton Electronics, CommAgility, Microlab and Noisecom exhibited side by side demonstrating the full portfolio of the Wireless Telecom Group businesses.
- Boonton Electronics
Boonton USB power sensors provide an 195 MHz of video bandwidth, and capability into the millimeter wave range with sensors up to 40 GHz. With Real-Time Power Processing, Boonton sensors have virtually zero measurement latency minimizing the chance of missing any waveform dropouts our anomalies. Boonton demonstrated these Real Time Power sensors alongside its two newest products, the CPS2000 Connected Power Sensor and the 4500C Peak Power Analyzer for radar and pulsed RF test.
As a 4G radio access network equipment, PHY and protocol stack provider, CommAgility is developing platforms for next generation solutions based on 5G new radio specifications. This expertise, along with participation in research initiatives such as Coherent, CommAgility is able to identify impactful needs in the areas of enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive machine-type communication (mMTC) and ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC). CommAgility showcased its modular hardware used for eNodeB and UE simulation and testing, radar and electronic warfare applications and private LTE networks.
For over 20 years, Microlab has been a provider of RF components for in-building wireless distributed antenna systems. Microlab has introduced a digital GPS repeater to ensure wireless networks are 5G ready, providing network time and phase synchronization below 100 ns accuracy. This new product line was on display along with the portfolio of ultra-wideband products it complements, from 600MHz to 6GHz to support multi-band carrier aggregation, LTE License Assisted Access (LAA), and Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).
Noisecom has been developing noise sources across the microwave and millimeter spectrum for over three decades. Calibrated noise sources for noise power ratio and noise figure measurement in high bandwidth 5G and millimeter applications improve amplifier and system performance. The IMS display featured broadband noise sources for over the air testing and chamber calibration, critical aspects of 5G device testing where conducted testing and physical connection to a device under test is impossible due to highly integrated components and high bandwidth signals.
