BBU Emulation lets your test set become a virtual BBU. This lets you, the Engineer, power up the Remote Radio Head (RRH) prior to it’s installation on the tower.
VIAVI has been working to build support for BBU emulation on Ericsson radios for a long time, and that work has finally paid off.
With BBU emulation, you can not only power up the radio head, but check software version, verify the SFP, control the Remote Electrical Tilt (RET) motors inside the connected antennas, and much more.
VIAVI even supports remote PIM testing including a 2 swept tones option.
