Wireless communication is used to send information wirelessly through the air. Interference happens when something gets in the way of this signal, making it weaker or harder to understand. This can cause issues with coverage (the distance the signal can travel), capacity (the amount of data that can be sent at once), and throughput (the speed at which data can be sent).
Interference can happen in many different ways. It could be caused by other electronic devices nearby, like a TV or a radio, or even by the weather. When interference happens, it can make it harder for the receiver to pick up the signal, which can make it difficult to use more advanced technology that could improve communication.
Detecting interference can be a difficult and time-consuming process. It requires a lot of specialized knowledge and equipment. The process is broken down into three steps:
- Detecting the interference or problems with the signal: This involves identifying when there is a problem with the signal. This could be because of a drop in signal strength, an increase in noise levels, or other problems.
- Identifying the type of interference: Once the interference is detected, the next step is to figure out what kind of interference it is. Different kinds of interference require different approaches to solve the problem.
- Locating the interference source: Finally, it’s important to find out where the interference is coming from. This can involve using specialized equipment to pinpoint the source of the problem.
In this webinar, Brad Goetzelman, a Wireless Application Test Engineer, will explain how to detect, identify, and isolate interference issues. He will provide simple and easy-to-follow steps that RF engineers and technicians can use to find and fix interference problems.
