Introduction
This chapter gives a brief overview of the Anritsu Remote Spectrum Monitor Long Term Evolution (LTE) analyzer and its measurement capabilities. Th e purpose of this chapter is to provide a starting point for making LTE measurements. This chapter describes measurement setup, including selecting the analyzer and setting up frequency, bandwidth, amplitude, span, and markers. After measurements are taken, refer to Saving and Recalling Measurements for a description of saving, recalling, and managing measurement files. For detailed information about other specific measurements, refer to the appropriate chapter in this guide.
A basic understanding of the measurement concepts presented in Spectrum Monitor Measurements is recommended before performing the procedures in this chapter. LTE measurements include the use of additional functions beyond frequency, span, amplitude, and marker functions. Setting Frequency and Bandwidth Parameters through Setting Up Markers explain general setup procedures and settings. LTE Measurement Setup through LTE Frame Power provide example LTE measurements that are available in the LTE analyzer.
LTE measurement setups typically conform to the 3GPP and device manufacturer standards. Remote Spectrum Monitor is designed to make setting up your measurement as easy as possible. Simply refer to the specification for the measurement and base station settings that you are testing, select the measurement, and enter the base station measurement setup parameters.
The LTE signal analyzer offers the following measurement options:
RF Measurements
The following display types are provided for RF measurements:
