Advanced Antenna Line, PIM, & Spectrum Analysis Package
Advanced Antenna Line & PIM RF Analysis Course (3 Days, Course Number 0300-00670-EN)

Description: We will challenge the most seasoned individual regardless of experience and/or past training. This workbook-based manufacturer neutral course is taken in conjunction with our 1-day Spectrum Analysis, PIM & Interference RF Course (0300-00671-EN), which provides the necessary background on spectrum analyzers/receivers and how to locate external PIM. Courses 0300-00670-EN and 0300-00671-EN each have an online certification. Topics for this course includes an in-depth review of RF Fundamentals, RF components and antenna systems, harmonics and IM (intermodulation) products, antenna polarity vs. PIM (IM) source locations, locating external PIM (and active IM) using 1-port and 2-port PIM analyzers and antenna polarity combining, cable antenna analyzers, and extensive fieldwork and classroom labs. Covers customer specific test units.

Self-Guided Online Certification: Advanced Antenna Line & PIM RF Analysis Certification (Certification Number 0301-00193-EN)

Recommended Prerequisites: Fieldwork experience and/or manufacturer-specific training courses.

Spectrum Analysis, PIM & Interference Course (1 Day, Course Number 0300-00671-EN)

Description: This course is based (in part) on our experience training AT&T's National Interference Hunting Team. This workbook-based manufacturer neutral course is taken in conjunction with our 3-day Advanced Antenna Line & PIM RF Analysis Course (0300-00670-EN), which provides the RF background to troubleshoot complex antenna systems and external PIM (and active IM). Courses 0300-00671-EN and 0300-00670-EN each have an online certification. Topics for this course includes an in-depth review of spectrum analyzer/receiver screen setup scenarios, VBW, RBW vs. noise level, RBW vs. composite and peak power levels, test unit saturation, signal identification and LTE bands, and locating external PIM (IM) very close to and far away from antennas. Includes interference analysis (hunting) procedures. Covers customer specific test units.

Vendor-Specific Training & Certification

 
AT&T External PIM Mitigation Training and Certification (Self-Guided, Course Number 0301-03600-EN)

This is an AT&T approved process for external PIM (and active IM) mitigation and is required before working on LTE Band 14/29 FirstNet™ sites. This course can be purchased at any time; access to the training and certification will be activated once students have successfully completed the two prerequisite classroom courses (totaling 4-days).

Students review the self-guided training content and then take a two-part test. Our in-depth information is based on AT&T's External PIM Identification and Resolution MOP (ATT-002-291-332), vendor closeout packages, and proprietary M-PiLOT™ testing. Information is formatted into five easy-to-read categories that can be referenced while working on sites.

The section on Proven Resolutions was specifically designed by Bryant Solution to reduce wasted time at sites and assist contractors with recommendations to reduce site downtime and improve RSSI.

Mandatory Prerequisites:

  • Advanced Antenna Line & PIM RF Analysis Classroom Course (0300-00670-EN)
  • Spectrum Analysis, PIM & Interference Classroom Course (0300-00671-EN)
  • Individual must be an approved AT&T contractor or an employee or sub-contractor of an approved AT&T contractor.
