Monitor Radio Spectrum While Hunting Interference

Sept. 29, 2023
As wireless applications grow, the needs for spectrum monitoring and interference hunting grow with them. In some applications, interference can be life-threatening. Portable spectrum analyzers are invaluable interference hunting tools.

          In an increasingly crowded radio spectrum, managing interference becomes paramount. This white paper explores the crucial role of spectrum analyzers in monitoring and hunting interference, as wireless devices proliferate. Spectrum analyzers, available in various architectures, offer the capability to identify and analyze signals within defined frequency ranges. The paper highlights the benefits of these tools, such as aiding in interference detection for various applications. Moreover, it discusses the feature-rich form factors of modern RTSAs, which offer portability and robust performance, while addressing interference challenges across low, medium, and high frequency ranges.
