YellowFin Fixed WiMAX Analyzer

Download Hi-Res Image Download White Paper

YellowFin™ Fixed Mobile WiMAX analyzer is the world’s first truly portable, calibrated, demodulating 802.16d WiMAX test receiver. This handheld unit utilizes the Panasonic Toughbook tablet PC as an interface in conjunction with Berkeley’s precision receiver technology for complete spectrum analysis as well as WiMAX packet demodulation. The receiver sweeps the 2.0 - 5.9 GHz spectrums to within +1.5 dB accuracy. YellowFin™ performs full spectrum analysis allowing RF engineers to see the whole wireless network picture. Features include power triggers, peak hold/search, markers and multiple waveform traces. WiMAX 802.16d packet analysis includes RSSI measurements, multipath analysis, BaseStation ID and CINR (Carrier-to-Interference-plus-Noise-Ratios) on a preamble basis. The optional DF (Direction Finding) Antenna allows engineers to pinpoint sources of WiMAX interference, rogue base stations and even nearby hackers. An internal 12-channel/satellite GPS receiver allows for geo-coded site surveys and drive-studies using optional mapping software.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the YellowFin do 802.11b/g or 802.11a studies?
 
While the YellowFin does scan the spectrum that common 802.11 Wi-Fi devices operate on, it does not demodulate Wi-Fi packets. YellowFin was designed for WiMAX installations, troubleshooting and interference detection. Yellowjacket-TABLET is similar in that it uses a touch screen interface and receiver combo but only for Wi-Fi studies.
Will this YellowFin do Mobile WiMAX studies too?
 
This model's receiver is calibrated for 802.16d Fixed WiMAX RF and packet data specifically. The original YellowFin WiMAX analyzer is designed specifically for802.16e Mobile WiMAX studies.
