Features & Benefits

• Designed for use in 2G, 3G, 4G and Wifi test applications

• Wide operating frequency range covers 700 MHz -2800 MHz

• Automated testing process by replacing cumbersome patch panels

• High performance to meet signal specifications in a test lab environment


LTE RF Matrix Switch: NEXUS-L

The NEXUS-L Series is a passive full fan out matrix switch which allows any of the inputs to be routed to any or all outputs. The operating frequency range of the switch covers 700 Mhz to 3000 Ghz. It is perfect for use in LTE, Wimax and 4G test applications. It automates test labs by replacing cumbersome patch panels and can be controlled easily via the front panel or remotely via a web browser interface. The basic configuration for the NEXUS Series is 16x16 or 32x32 switch which can be easily expanded to larger configurations. The NEXUS Series meets strict specifications required in a lab environment to ensure no signal degradation.
