More

Aeroflex's 6113 Digital Radio Test Set provides a wide range of test and measurement functions to enable fast manual or automatic testing of GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 Base Transceiver Stations (BTSs). Applications include installation and commissioning, routine maintenance, fault finding and final unit production testing.

A-bis Interface - In order to perform comprehensive, real environment, standalone testing of a BTS, the test set must be capable of controlling the BTS. The 6113 is unique in its ability to measure RF transmission as well as connecting to the BTS via the A-bis interface. Through the use of the specific BTS manufacturers' Operation & Maintenance (O&M) commands, the 6113 is able to emulate the Base Station Controller (BSC) and take complete control of the BTS. This is accomplished automatically without the need for user intervention.
