Making EIRP Measurements on 5G Base Stations

January 20, 2020

The introduction of active antenna systems on 5G base stations requires engineers installing and maintaining them to use alternative measurement methods, such as effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) for transmitter power and beam verification. This application note highlights how the Anritsu Field Master Pro™ MS2090A facilitates the "over-the-air" (OTA) measurement of EIRP on active base stations using an accessory dual polarized waveguide antenna. Measurements are performed according to 3GPP specifications and are ideal for product design verification and field installations.
