Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) says its E6610A remote radio head (RRH) tester offers compact size and two-channel Tx and Rx with CPRI in a single box. The test and measurement instrument vendor believes the E6610A will prove useful to OEM and component suppliers, distributed antenna system (DAS) vendors, and small cell vendors involved with RRH testing, as well as to independent repair and service companies.

The RRH tester can be used to test LTE-FDD and LTE-TDD RRHs over the 700 MHz to 2.7 GHz frequency range. The E6610A includes dual RF Tx/Rx channels and a CPRI optical interface to emulate the connection between the RRH and the baseband unit. The E6610A helps to test the complete RRH in both uplink and downlink modes as an alternative to customized setups, Keysight says.

"The remote radio head tester is ideal for those seeking a simpler, integrated, and lower-cost solution for their manufacturing test needs," said Nana Amoa, product marketing manager of Keysight's Communications Measurement Systems division. "The tester provides the perfect balance between performance and price, one that is significantly lower than alternative solutions."

The E6610A remote radio head tester and options are available to order worldwide.
