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. 

This three-part webinar series to learn more about connector inspection and cleaning techniques, fiber-link validation and troubleshooting, CPRI transport link validation, and more. This series aims to help you:

  • Get your tower crews up-to-speed with fiber testing
  • Ensure SFPs and RRH equipment are fully functional before activating services
  • Speed up your deployment while preventing costly repeated tower climbs

Watch Part 1 and Part 3
