Verizon has announced it will be ready for early field trials in 2017. To make good on these promises, an LTE Advanced or 5G network will need to reduce interference between cell towers as well as let Small Cells co-exist, within the coverage area of a Macro Cell. LTE time-division duplex (LTE-TDD) systems prom- ise greater efficiency by using the same frequency to transmit and receive data between a cellular device and a tower. Enhanced Inter-cell Interference Coordination (eICIC) reduces interference at the edge where cell tower coverage overlaps. Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) is a range of different techniques that enable the dynamic coordination of transmission and reception between a cellular device and multiple eNodeBs. In addition to 50 ppb frequency synchroniza- tion, these new technologies will only work if eNodeBs are phase and time aligned with accuracies between 1-5s. The T-BERD 5800 Timing Module by Viavi Solutions is the ideal tool for early 5G field trials. In addition to supporting the tools needed today (OTDR, fiber microscope, power meters, CPRI/OBSAI and Ethernet protocol test) the T-BERD 5800 delivers a complete synchro- nization suite. The built in 72 chan- nel GPS receiver and Rubidium oscillator enable field technicians to perform near lab grade, nano- second accurate latency and time measurements, even when the T-BERD 5800 is not connected directly to a satellite signal. Sky plots promote proper antenna in- stallation. Supporting IEEE 1588v2 (PTP) PDV and Time Error, One Way Delay, 1 PPS and T1 Wander mea- surements, the Viavi T-BERD 5800 confirms the Ethernet backhaul network conforms to the rigorous requirements imposed by 5G.

TESSCO No. 540694 TB5800 Handheld Network Tester List: $7,000.00 TESSCO No. 557699 TB5800 1G Ethernet Package List: $4,995.00 The Viavi Solutions TEM is the preferred tool for installing and maintaining networks with stringent timing and synchronization requirements. Together with the T-BERD/MTS-5800, the field-optimized TEM delivers industry-leading accuracy. It features a GNSS antenna input and a miniature atomic clock (MAC) to ensure nanosecond-accurate measurements, even when a satellite signal is not present and the module is running in holdover.

INSTALLATION & TEST MAINTENANCE The Buzz About Drones Not since the ladder has there been a bigger boon to safety and efficiency in tower inspection than drones. Drones eliminate tower climbs and take more accurate pictures, sure, but it's more than that. Sentera brings us a solution that includes the drones, high- precision sensors designed to capture exactly what you need-image and non-image data-and then the means to make the collected data useful: the OnTop Platform. Comprehensive Data Collection Sentera's solution allows customers to capture precisely-tagged imagery and other data traditional inspection methods cannot capture. Drones expedite the inspection process with a typical flight time of less than 20 minutes; meaning fewer truck rolls and more tower inspections. Whether that's high-precision comparative photography or non-image sensing, it's captured and cataloged in near-real time. Mobile App Some inspections take place on the ground, and for those applications, Sentera's got you covered with OnTop Mobile, the mobile app that syncs and works in concert with your desktop client. Even as you're right there, onsite, you can see your data populate and begin to make decisions on the spot. Inspection Complete Once all inspection images are collected, a simple push of a button allows you to instantly share imagery from anywhere in the world, to anywhere in the world. All data is assigned to a map, with a pin for every asset. Highly efficient, highly effective. Flow of Data With the Sentera OnTop Platform, users can add notes and annotations to every image while they are in the field or later during analysis that flow with the image wherever it goes. Sharing one image, all images, or a customer report is a single click away. Now that's something to buzz about. Visit www.tessco.com/go/sentera. TESSCO No. 554151 OnTop Platform Software License List: $99.00 The Peltor WS100 Communications Headset: Sound Control Thats Music to Your Ears The 3M Peltor WS-100 makes it easy for workers to communicate, listen to music and talk on the phone. Additionally, the WS-100 is an innovative headset that helps reduce exposure to loud sounds and enhance worker safety by making it easier to hear conversation, warning signals and approaching vehicles. Awareness is improved by ampli- fying lower sound level like voices while attenuating high level work- place sounds. The output is limited to 82dBa. The WS-100 is made of a comfortable stainless steel/pvc handband with black comfortable cups and boom microphone. Bluetooth Wireless Technology allows direct, discreet communica- tion. You can easily answer or reject incoming mobile phones calls by pressing the PressToTalk/Answer button positioned conveniently on the left earphone. The Bluetooth range is 30 feet. The 3M Peltor WS-100 headset was designed for applications such as construction, manufacturing, racing, shooting ranges, transpor- tation and workshops. Visit www.tessco.com/3m. TESSCO No. 556644 Peltor WS-100 Communications Headset List: $463.04 Communications Headset FI-100 Fiber Identifier Kit FI-100 Fiber Identifier Supports Common Fiber The Greenlee FI-100 Fiber Identifier provides fast, simple and rugged fiber identification. The versatile FI-100 supports all common fibers including 250um, 900um, 2mm and 3mm as well as its ability to sense light in bend sensitive fibers. Easy to operate, the FI-100 identifies fiber with tone detect as well as a clear indication of signal transmission direction by means of a left and right LED. The FI-100 identifies a wavelength range of 800 to 1700 nanometers by means of non-intrusive low insertion loss, preventing alarm conditions. The Greenlee FI-100 Kit includes the FI-100 Fiber Identifier; 250um, 900um, 2mm and 3mm adapters; soft carrying case; instruction manual; and a sun shade. The FI-100 uses two AAA Alkaline batteries and features rugged metal housing. Visit www.tessco.com/go/greenlee.
