Remotely monitor and troubleshoot RF interference issues–from your desk, and before they impact subscribers.
The evolution of fronthaul networks towards a C-RAN architecture, the introduction of 5G technology and new RF bands will increase the number of remote radio heads (RRH) being deployed. EXFO’s SkyRAN solution is designed to meet today’s and tomorrow’s fronthaul network challenges. It provides fast, easy access to the status of the fiber optic infrastructure and of the RF spectrum, at any time, and from anywhere. Its industry-leading resolution and accuracy allow users to pinpoint and troubleshoot RF interference issues and fiber faults remotely, eliminating unnecessary on-site visits.
Test tools used in the field today don’t have the resolution or processing power to show real-world interference—resulting in undiagnosed, critical RF interference issues. SkyRAN uses the industry’s best real-time, high-resolution RF spectrum analysis over CPRI. If there’s any RF interference, you’ll see it.
Diagnosing the root cause of RF interference and PIM issues with a “trial and error” approach can be costly, leading to repeat truck rolls, reworks, long mean-time-to-repair—and impact subscriber quality of experience.
SkyRAN delivers real-time visibility into the mobile spectrum from any location, at any time, for quick diagnosis and resolution.
Thanks to its unique modular features and high-performance platform, SkyRAN meets today’s needs and has the flexibility to evolve with tomorrow’s RAN requirements, without the costly replacement of equipment. Testing capabilities and optical switches can be easily extended as the number of cell sites grow.
