Aeroflex Creates Entry-Level 6113 Digital Radio Test Set

Aeroflex has launched an entry-level version of its well-proven and highly successful 6113 Digital Radio Test Set for testing mobile basestations, targeted primarily at emerging markets including Africa, South America and Eastern Europe. The entry-level version is being offered in an EDGE configuration, with one A-bis interface for full basestation control and BER measurements, encryption, support for two of the four GSM frequency bands and software support. The entry-level Aeroflex 6113 can be upgraded to a full system, if required.

Field portable and easy to use, over 2,000 Aeroflex 6113 Digital Radio Test Sets have already been deployed worldwide making it the industry-standard basestation test tool amongst GSM operators. With options to control all major basestation types, Aeroflex’s 6113 Digital Radio Test Set provides a wide range of test and measurement functions to facilitate fast manual or automatic testing. Applications include installation and commissioning, routine maintenance, fault finding and final unit production testing.

“GSM is the technology of choice for mobile communications adoption in emerging markets,” said Ross Broadhurst, Product Marketing Manager, Aeroflex Test Solutions. “We believe the entry-level version of the Aeroflex 6113 Digital Radio Test Set is likely to prove highly popular with engineering teams within operators and vendors in emerging markets who are responsible for basestation evaluation, detailed fault-finding and regression testing of new software releases.”

The entry-level Aeroflex 6113 Digital Radio Test Set price starts at $50,000.
