Livingston launches mobile base station test kit
Test equipment sourcing specialist Livingston has added another test kit to its growing selection. It is focussed on serving engineers involved in the deployment or upgrading of mobile base stations.It is possible to choose from a broad variety of different antenna/cable analysis, antenna alignment, PIM testing, power metering, Gigabit Ethernet testing and personal RF monitoring products.
By mixing and matching different items then bundling them together they can benefit from a 10% discount in the overall rental cost.
The kits allow users to create a bespoke multi-element equipment rental solution that satisfies their specific test requirements without putting unnecessary strain onto their financial reserves.
As Reinier Treur, Marketing Director at Livingston, comments “Our test kits mean we can now supply various industry sectors with highly optimised, extremely flexible equipment rental solutions that have the most favourable price/performance characteristics. They clearly demonstrate the numerous advantages of following a rental strategy rather than resorting to direct purchase.” Equipment available includes Rohde & Schwarz’s ZVH compact antenna/cable analyser (covering frequencies up to 8GHz); the JDSU JD720 CellAdvisor handheld antenna/cable analyser (capable of supporting frequencies of 4GHz); Anritsu’s SiteMaster S33xD and S33xE series of portable antenna/cable analysers (also with 4GHz frequency support); the UMTS Partners SPAA05 series of high accuracy GPS antenna alignment tools; the highly compact D8860 and D8862 personal RF monitors from Narda; and EXFO’s FTB-860 handheld Gigabit Ethernet tester for examination of the cell site’s supporting backhaul network.
