EXFO’s SkyRAN embarks as a scalable remote access and monitoring solution for fiber-based fronthaul networks. Developed in collaboration with wireless carriers in North America, SkyRAN provides real-time, on-demand testing and 24/7 monitoring of fiber optic networks and radio frequency (RF) spectrum. The SkyRAN solution is currently being showcased at VZTUF-XII in Austin, TX.
SkyRAN combines high-resolution RF spectrum analysis over CPRI with advanced fiber monitoring capabilities. As SkyRAN reveals RF issues that were previously either undetectable or difficult to identify, mobile network operators (MNOs) will have the capacity to proactively identify and resolve RF interference, PIM and fiber-related issues before they could impact subscribers. To continue delivering superior quality of experience, MNOs will need full visibility into their RF spectrum and fiber fronthaul networks. A solution like SkyRAN will become even more critical as the mobile industry begins to transform their networks in preparation for 5G, which will rely on highly dense networks resulting in an increase of RF interference sources.
