CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
In the testing lab and among RF engineers, PIM is a key concern. Wireless service providers have been vigilant about establishing more stringent PIM standards. Many system vendors have created proactive processes and testing procedures to ensure these standards are being met, if not exceeded.
When it comes to field-testing by installers and services technicians, the awareness of PIM and how to properly detect it may not be as strong as it needs to be. Field testing for PIM introduces a number of additional variables that, if not properly accounted for, may result in wide-ranging discrepancies and inaccurate readings.
CommScope has developed a new white paper called PIM Testing: Advanced wireless services emphasize the need for better PIM control to offer wireless service providers and installers a better understanding of how PIM is created in today’s multilayered, highly sensitive networks. It also addresses how to accurately field test for PIM and neutralize the variables that may affect test results.
Do you have questions about PIM or the material covered in the white paper? Leave me a comment below, and I’ll answer them.
