Products up to 4 Gbps of aggregate capacity per link. Further, the CTR has an open, software-based architecture, so it can be deployed now as a Layer 2 microwave device, with IP/MPLS functionality capable of being added when required via simple software upgrade. CTR leverages MPLS traffic engineering to offer SDN (software-defined networking) backhaul resource management and optimization, which provides a practical migration path to SDN architecture over time. www.aviatnetworks.com Schottky microwave detectors offer high sensitivity AtlanTecRF is introducing two models of zero bias Schottky detectors with high sensitivity and a wide operating temperature range. The first two frequency ranges offered are 10 MHz to 18 GHz and 2.0 to 8.0 GHz, both with sensitivity of 500 mV/mW and TSS of -50 dBm. Flatness over the 10 MHz to 18 GHz frequency band is ±1.25 dB maximum and VSWR for this device is 2.0:1. “These detectors are designed to be an affordable method in RF signal measurement for engineers designing a wide variety of equipment and test stations,” said AtlanTecRF’s CEO, Geoff Burling. Input RF connectors are SMA male while the output video connector is SMA female and the output impedance is in the range 3.0 to 5.0 k-ohms with 20 pF shunt capacitance. No bias is required and there is a choice of either positive or negative output polarity. www.atlantecrf.com Passive network probe targets LTE networks Agilent Technologies has announced a significant enhancement to its Passive Network Monitoring System for converged telecommunication networks across 2G, 2.5G, 3G and now 4G LTE technologies. The company’s Passive Network Monitoring Systems offer a highly scalable monitoring and processing portfolio that effectively processes both voice and data completely independent of the telecom network elements. These systems allow legally authorized users to identify and extract communications of interest and provide accurate location information, correlate voice and data selectors, and provide advanced filtering and selection for multiple 10GbE and legacy communications links. The Passive Network Monitoring Systems are based on a high-availability 2U industry-standard platform. A flexible API with an extremely wide range of selection triggers and filters enables integration with multiple network management, lawful intercept, geolocation and cyber defense applications. High levels of security procedures and protocols ensure that only authorized users gain access to warranted information. www.agilent.com NFC antenna 3.2 mm high, targets smartphones With a profile less than 3.2 mm high, the ZC1003HF series Z-axis antenna is well suited for slim smartphone designs. It improves communication distance for near-field communication applications such as cashless payment, physical access, driver identification, peer-to-peer file sharing, and credential storage and exchange. The highly sensitive antenna measures only 10 x 10 x 3.1 mm — it requires less board space compared with PCB printed loop antennas, and offers up to 30% longer reading distances, claims gri_t52 TCXO_1/4 mwee_Layout 1 1/20/14 12:22 PM Page 1 Image courtesy Agilent Technologies Raising the Bar Greenray’s new T52 TCXO offers Low Noise, 0.1ppm Temp Stability, a 3x5mm SMT Package, Low Power Draw, and a Vacuumsealed crystal: It’s Perfect for Small Cell and Femtocell applications that raise the bars — and keep ’em there.
