lba-logo-transparent-blueChris Horne, LBA Group, Inc. CTO, will be moderating a free webinar on PIM: Passive Intermodulation sponsored by the WCAI Engineering committee. The speaker will be Ray Butler, Vice President – Base Station Antenna Products and Development at CommScope.

PIM has become increasingly important with the explosion of wireless data services and the increasing need for bandwidth, antenna sharing and collocated transmitters. In order to ensure compatibility and robust service, the performance and quality of wireless base stations are becoming critical to network success. One parameter that is very sensitive to wireless network performance is passive intermodulation (PIM). This webinar will explain the causes of PIM in the network, including an in-depth look at how to best perform PIM measurements. Preventive measures to avoid PIM from the presenter’s experience will be shared along with a summary of common specifications and standards. You will also learn about previously unpublished field test results.
