Why is Antenna Alignment Important?
During the installation of your wireless network, antenna alignment counts. Companies spend millions of dollars to plan and design wireless and microwave networks. As you plan the coverage objectives, it is critically important that antenna alignment is accurately implemented during the installation. Otherwise, it will result in coverage gaps, network performance degradation and loss of revenue. It is equally important that installers are equipped with an effective and reliable antenna alignment tool. This gives you the confidence that the job was performed as indicated on the RF design specifications.

5G will largely be deployed in a small cell format using high-band millimeter-wave (mmW) frequencies. High gain millimeter-wave antennas will produce pencil-like beams which require LOS (Line-of-Sight) or NLOS (Near-Line-of-Sight) to achieve high data rates.
To maximize the use of high-band mmW frequencies and Massive MIMO beamforming antenna performance, precise antenna alignment and an LOS survey are critical during and after installation.
3Z RF Vision is ready to help you service 5G networks.
Automated Closeout Reports
No post processing required! 3Z RF Vision will create a single comprehensive PDF or CSV report for each site being aligned. Retrieve reports easily via the built-in micro USB port or send it in real time using our mobile app.
Your report includes the target coordinates and the final measured alignment data, site sector identifiers, geocoding, geolocation, date and time stamp, and a line-of-sight photo validation.
Dual-Frequency GNSS Technology
3Z RF Vision connects to GPS and GLONASS
Dual-frequency GNSS technology allows 3Z RF Vision to measure satellites twice, seeing a total of 174 satellites signals (3x more than competitor products). This delivers more accurate, faster readings even in high density urban cities and crowded towers.
Line-of-Sight Survey with Every Alignment
The Only Antenna Alignment Tool with Camera in the Market
For the first time, an antenna alignment tool not only aligns the antenna, but also provides a visual guide to show where the antenna is pointing. The line-of-sight image gives you greater clarity and simplifies the alignment process.
The world around your antennas is constantly changing, and 3Z RF Vision allows you to capture these changes. New building constructions, growing tree lines, etc. will degrade your coverage objectives and create unhappy customers. Only 3Z RF Vision will allow you to see these obstructions and give engineers the ability to optimize antenna orientations.
Now you can see your antenna coverage!
Camera & Touch Screen View Finder
3Z RF Vision’s augmented reality displays a bullseye target in the 5-inch LCD touch screen display. Now the tower tech can perfectly align the antenna by simply moving the crosshair over to align the bullseye in one easy step.
The touch screen display is responsive to touch in most work gloves, letting you keep your hands warm and protected in cold conditions.
Impact Resistant Display
Built for rugged use, the display is protected with chemically strengthened glass which creates a much higher resistance to scratching, cracking and breaking. We designed it tough to keep up with your toughest tower technician.
