The Sweep Master web-based application released by Anritsu Company is designed to improve efficiency and quality when deploying, installing and maintaining wireless networks. The company claims the Sweep Master can work with certain Site Master cable and antenna analyzers, Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analyzers and BTS Master base station analyzers. According to the company, the Sweep Master line sweep and documentation tracking tool is aimed at large multipurpose installation and maintenance projects.

The application can track measurements such as return loss, cable loss, Distance-to-Fault, Passive Intermodulation, and Distance-to-PIM. Sweep Master tracks these traces using a number of web-based features, such as auto file upload and renaming; auto marker and limit line placements; and auto red/green pass/fall trace flagging.

Sweep Master has a Bulk Upload system that enables users to upload and process entire folders of traces at once. The result is approximately 190 individual traces can be processed and available for online review in less than one minute.

Sweep Master claims easy access as-needed for users. They can log on, enter their desired "site profile," and upload testing and/or turnover data using web and drop-down menus.

The Sweep Master comes in two versions. The Sweep Master Pro is designed to enable capture of cable, antenna, and PIM traces on a password protected website by field personnel. Sweep Master Pro automatically places marker and limit lines as well as applying pass/fail criteria for all traces. This pass fail criteria includes red/green flagging to speed project review. Another version, the Sweep Master Pro+ starts with the Pro capabilities and adds document management and reporting tools.

Anritsu Sweep Master Pro and Sweep Master Pro+ can be ordered now, with a two-week lead time.
