Webinar Series on Fronthaul Testing

The path towards complete FTTA/RRH site turn-up - in just one field trip.
This webinar series covers everything you need to know to efficiently qualify fiber-to-the-antenna (FTTA) networks and confirm that remote radio heads (RRH) and CPRI links are fully functional before leaving the cell site – in just one field trip.
