Common problems
Your mission:
Get new cell sites
up and running quickly
and keep them
operating at peak
efficiency
• You need to install and maintain more cell sites with fewer people:
You don’t have enough hours in your day. You need to test more cell sites in the same amount
of time, so you have to be able to rapidly detect and diagnose equipment problems.
• You need to troubleshoot interference issues faster:
Customers care intensely about the quality of their service, so you need to be able
to rapidly detect and identify unknown signals.
• You need a better way to make multiple tests on various
technologies and frequencies:
You work in a variety of environments on a variety
of technologies. You need equipment that is flexible.

YOU NEED TO INSTALL
AND MAINTAIN MORE CELL
SITES WITH FEWER PEOPLE
As operating frequencies have
soared from sub-GHz levels up
to 5.8 GHz, you have had to build
more base stations or upgrade
existing sites to maintain the
same size coverage area. As a
result, you need to deploy and
maintain more cell sites and
more complex and co-located
networks than you previously
did in the same amount of time.
You need installation and
maintenance tools that make
you more productive.

Case study: Cell-site technician finds and fixes problems faster
A senior technician for a leading
wireless service provider had
close to 100 cell sites to manage,
and they were stretched out
over 600 miles. He needed to make
sure all of his sites were properly
maintained and all trouble tickets
were cleared promptly. To keep up
with the workload, he needed to
find a faster way to identify feeder
system problems and diagnose
inte
nterference issues so he
could reduce
red
the time he spent
troubleshootin
oting each cell site.
Solving the problem
The technician’s biggest challenges were finding a reliable and fast RF analyzer that reduced the time he spent at each cell site and that quickly identified feeder system problems
and interference issues that caused dropped calls. FieldFox’s built-in interference analyzer
helped him capture and record events of interest, play back and review these events immediately at the site, and diagnose internal and external issues without an external PC.
Using the FieldFox RF analyzer, the technician was able to check feeder lines and antennas
without calibrating the instrument.
The analyzer’s return loss/distance-to-fault dual display also helped him find and fix
problems twice as fast as he could with his old equipment.
Results
“I have been using the FieldFox unit for a couple months now and it has become my secret
weapon in the field,” said the technician. “My old BTS tester was large, had a short
battery life, was hard to see in the daylight at my outdoor sites, and constantly needed
recalibration. Now with this FieldFox unit I can sweep antennas and collect the
sweeps quickly. For antenna sweeps and interference hunting, I have not found a better,
smaller, better-lit or easier-to-use unit.”
“We had a tough dropped call situation in one of our sites. We had tried
to locate the issue for a couple of months with help from our other
test equipment vendors, but we had no luck. Agilent brought in FieldFox
and expertise in interference hunting, and we were able to find
the problem within a day!”
Senior technician for a leading wireless service provider
“How will the N9912A RF Analyzer save me time?”
• Complete tests faster with the world’s fastest sweep time
• Test times 50% faster than other handheld analyzers
• 1001-point resolution in cable/antenna test mode finds faults faster
• Easy-to-use, task-driven interface

PROBLEM
SOLUTION: Improve your ability to detect interference signals…
YOU NEED TO TROUBLESHOOT INTERFERENCE
ISSUES FASTER
...with Agilent I&M test tools
Interference can cause big headaches because it has a direct
impact on the quality of service.
Interference can be internal or
external, on an uplink or downlink. Before you can find the
source and resolve the issue, you

CASE STUDY: Technicians discover CDMA base station interfering with GSM base station
A 900-MHz GSM base station
in Qingdao, China, experienced
an uplink interference problem
in sector 3. The RF technicians
were unable to locate the interference source with a competitor’s handheld spectrum analyzer.
They turned to Agilent for help,
and Agilent application engineers
responded with a N9340B
handheld spectrum analyzer
with Option INM (interferenc
(interference
moniitorin
oring).
N9311X-504
directional
antenna
Solving the problem
The technicians used the N9340B with a directional
antenna (N9311X-504) from the N9311X RF accessory kit
to scan the uplink frequency span of 890 MHz to 915 MHz
on sector 3. They found the noise floor between 890 MHz
and 900 MHz was much higher than the normal noise floor
(see Figure 1).
The GSM base station was shut down for further analysis.
Technicians used the N9340B’s interference monitoring
feature (spectrogram) to continuously monitor the 870-MHz
to 915-MHz frequency and found strong CDMA-like
signals between 870 MHz and 890 MHz. Also shown on
the spectrogram was a wideband noise-like interference
at 890 MHz to 900 MHz (see Figure 2).
To see if the signals were CDMA signals, technicians used
the N9340B’s occupied bandwidth (OBW) one-button
measurement to evaluate the signals’ bandwidth. The
N9340B showed the measurement occupied bandwidth
was 1.2 MHz, which is the bandwidth of a CDMA signal
(see Figure 3).
Figure 1. Noise floor for the 890
MHz to 915 MHz frequency span
Figure 2. Interference signals on
the spectrogram
Results
A nearby CDMA base station was found to generate the
out-of-band emissions that interfered with the GSM
base station. A report with measurement screenshots
was submitted to the two service providers to resolve
this interference issue.
