Every major radio communication system in the world, including GSM/DCS1800/PCS1900, CDMA, IS-136A, PDC, PHS and DECT, can be evaluated using just one MT8801C Radio Communication Analyzer, covering the 300 kHz to 3 GHz frequency band in one hardware platform, and the dedicated measurement software options. The call processing test and sensitivity test using loopback method are possible for GSM/DCS1800/PCS1900, CDMA, IS-136A and DECT.

In addition, connection testing, as well as send testing while communicating, are also possible for PDC and PHS measurement by using the call processing function, and the PDC uplink RCH can be monitored (RSSI, estimated error rate) too. FM radio transmission/reception tests are simplified by using the optional analog measurement function, and the optional spectrum analyzer function covering 10 MHz to 3 GHz is very useful for maintaining as well as measuring spurious near carrier on production lines. GPIB and RS-232C interfaces are standard, so MT8801C can be incorporated easily into automated production lines or on-site automated testing systems.
