Interference is a continuously growing
problem for wireless network operators.
Compounding the problem are the many
sources that can generate interference
such as:
For identifying intermittent interference and tracking
signal levels over time for up to 72 hours with an
external USB flash drive.
Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI)
Signal ID (up to 12 signals)

GSM/GPRS/EDGE
W-CDMA/HSPA+
Interference causes Carrier-to-Interference
degradation robbing the network of
capacity. In many instances interference
can cause an outage to a sector, a cell,
and/or neighboring cells. The goal of these
measurements is to resolve interference
issues as quickly as possible.
The Cell Master offers many tools for
monitoring intermittent interferers over
time to determine patterns:
• Spectrogram
• Received Signal Strength Indicator
• Remote Monitoring over the Internet
• Save-on-Event – crossing a limit line
Used to observe the signal strength of a single
frequency over time. Data can be collected for up to
one week with an external USB flash drive.

Identifying Interference
Channel Scanner
Works on any signal and is useful when looking for IM
or harmonics. Can help spot signals widely separated
in frequency that turn on and off together.
The Cell Master provides several tools to
identify the interference – either from
a neighboring wireless operator, illegal
repeater or jammer, or self-interference:
• Signal ID (up to 12 signals at once)
• Signal Analyzer Over-the-Air Scanners
• Channel Scanner (up to 1200 channels,
20 at a time)
• Interference Mapping
Locating Interference
Signal Strength Meter
Can locate an interfering signal, by using a directional
antenna and measuring the signal strength and by an
audible beep proportional to its strength.
Once interference has been identified the
Signal Strength Meter with its audible
output beep coupled with a directional
antenna makes finding the interference
easier. Use Interference Mapping to
triangulate the interference signal on
an on-screen map.

Interference Mapping
Eliminates the need to use printed maps and draw
lines to triangulate location. Use on-screen maps
generated with GPS coordinates with Map Master™.
