Boonton, CommAgility, Microlab & Noisecom Exhibit Side-by-Side Demonstrating Full Range of Company Capabilities
Wireless Telecom Group will be showcasing 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. Product demonstrations will highlight the company’s development of technology for 5G and millimeter wave applications as well as radar and electronic warfare, private LTE networks, in-building wireless and over the air testing. For the first time at IMS all four of the company’s brands, Boonton Electronics, CommAgility, Microlab and Noisecom will exhibit side by side demonstrating the full portfolio of the Wireless Telecom Group businesses.
With 5G driving wider bandwidths and higher frequencies, the need for broadband, high frequency RF power measurement is becoming more important. Boonton USB power sensors provide an industry leading 195 MHz of video bandwidth, and capability into the millimeter wave range with sensors up to 40 GHz. With unique Real-Time Power ProcessingTM , Boonton sensors have virtually zero measurement latency minimizing the chance of missing any waveform dropouts or anomalies. These capabilities are ideal for verifying new radio signals in development, for ensuring proper operation during production, and for troubleshooting issues in the field. Boonton will demonstrate these Real Time Power sensors alongside its two newest products, the CPS2000 Connected Power Sensor for low cost, high volume manufacturing test of wireless devices and the 4500C Peak Power Analyzer for high performance radar and pulsed RF test.
As a leading 4G radio access network equipment, PHY and protocol stack provider with extensive experience in private network markets and specialized applications such as satellite communications and air to ground systems, CommAgility is actively developing platforms and engaging with customers for next generation solutions based on 5G new radio specifications. This experience and 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) which will be key enablers for industrial automation, vehicular communication and public safety communications. CommAgility will showcase 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 leading global provider of RF components for in-building wireless distributed antenna systems. Today, the world’s most demanding wireless carriers rely on Microlab components to ensure high quality mobile connectivity is available to their customers. As those carriers gear up for 5G deployments, Microlab has introduced a digital GPS repeater to ensure wireless networks are 5G ready, providing network time and phase synchronization below 100 ns accuracy which is critical for low latency requirements of 5G networks. This new product line will be on display along with the extensive 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 and this experience has resulted in reliable noise sources to ensure fast, economic development and deployment of 5G devices. 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 will feature 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.
