Major Wireless Network Infrastructure Provider AirMagnet Spectrum ES Case Study

AirMagnet Spectrum ES™ Eliminates Inefficient Tiered Technical Support for a Major Wireless Network Infrastructure Provider

Mobile subscribers have a growing appetite for applications and video, demanding access to data at any time in any place – and all the time in every place. Coverage lapses are often met with irritation from traditionally fickle subscribers, and interference on the cellular tower is the first suspect. As a result, carriers immediately turn to tower owners whenever coverage lapses occur. To prevent interference on multi-carrier cellular towers, tower owners must conduct ongoing inspections that leverage the latest network testing technologies, backed by a 24/7 network operations center (NOC).

One of the nation’s largest independent tower owners and operators has tens of thousands of towers in most of the top 100 U.S. markets. The cellular tower company found a solution with AirMagnet Spectrum ES from Fluke Networks. With the AirMagnet Spectrum ES, the cellular tower company’s technicians can quickly visualize carrier and technology overlays to identify and diagnose interference. The product saves time and reduces errors with location-specific automated carrier and technology look-up, instant detection of voice/data events, and zero-day interference intelligence.
