5G Installation

Installing means, setting up new radios, Antenna, connecting all the fiber and coax cables, connecting power to the 5G cell-site. Installing new radios, fiber infrastructure, and antennas are the essential tasks during the 5G installation phase. Deployment teams face challenges when staffing their crews and finding the right tools and management solutions to efficiently and consistently scale the 5G network infrastructure. The industry faces a shortage of trained staff and with multiple technologies at play, delivering consistent installation results is difficult. 

Installing a 5G cell site requires technicians to follow a standardized approach to perform a series of tests that ensure that all equipment performs to specification.  These can include a range of fiber tests, coax and sweep tests, cable and antenna analysis, connector tests, antenna alignment, and more, depending on the provider methods and procedures

The VIAVI test process automation (TPA) solution simplifies the process end to end. Offered on all VIAVI instruments for cell-site deployment, TPA allows novice technicians to deliver quality results every time by removing any guesswork and streamlining the workflow.

C-RAN Deployment

The introduction of centralized RAN (C-RAN) has made installation testing even more complicated. Both coarse wavelength-division multiplexing (CWDM) and dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) are common strategies for expanding backhaul/fronthaul capacity without laying more fiber. VIAVI CWDM and DWDM validation solutions enable physical-layer fiber certification and troubleshooting, along with CPRI, OBSAI and Ethernet service tests.

VIAVI C-RAN installation solutions help technicians:

  • Test new DWDM wavelength routes and pinpoint exact fault locations without disrupting traffic on active channels
  • Comprehensively qualify and troubleshoot hybrid CWDM/DWDM networks
