Cobham announced the release of the DMR Repeater Test Option for the 8800 Series Digital Radio Test Set.
This option enables the 8800 Series to test the transmitter and
receiver of a DMR repeater base station. The 8800 Series is able to
generate the signalling protocol that is necessary to "wake-up" the
DMR repeater and cause it to start transmitting. The 8800 Series is
then able to generate TDMA bursts that are synchronized to the
signal transmitted by the repeater.
Cobham announced this new option as part of its exhibition at
the International Wireless Communications Expo 2016 in Las Vegas,
"This enables the user to test the DMR repeater without
requiring the user to put it into a special test mode," said Rob
Barden, Director of Product Marketing. "It essentially emulates the
protocol of a DMR radio, enabling the technician to test the DMR
repeater in live operating mode."
The 8800 Series can then measure the transmitter parameters of
the repeater, including RF power, RF frequency error, FSK error,
and FSK symbol deviation. In addition, the 8800 Series can
determine the bit error rate of the receiver, by comparing the 8800
Series transmitted data to the data received from the DMR repeater.
This bit error rate measurement can be used to determine the
sensitivity level of the DMR repeater.
