What Does A Wider Upstream Path Mean for Signal Leakage Monitoring and Reporting?
Wednesday, October 14, 2020: 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM EDT
The inevitable widening of the upstream path is happening across the industry, to 204 MHz and higher, as a way to improve what is also a widening of services and applications that rely on it. However: What about legacy downstream devices, inadvertently transmitting into the newer, higher spectral boundaries? This three-part workshop aims to answer those questions and more. Ron Hranac opens the session with a deep dive on Full Band Capture – how it works, how to retrieve and display spectral data from modems, and how it benefits sub-split, mid-split and high-split architectures – including opportunities for automation and operational expenditure savings. Next, Kyle Hohman examines what a 204 MHz split means for signal leakage monitoring, to ensure the wider upstream path doesn’t interfere with licensed over-the-air and aeronautical frequencies. John Chrostowski closes the workshop with some pro tips for a solid leakage measurement program when going to an OFDMA-loaded upper spectral boundary of 204 MHz for the reverse path.
