Livingston Introduces New Cost-Optimised Test Kit for Base Station Deployment

Press release date: Jan 08, 2014

Test equipment sourcing specialist Livingston has added another test kit to its growing selection. This latest highly adaptable kit is focussed on serving engineers involved in the deployment or upgrading of mobile base stations. Through this it is possible to choose from a broad variety of different antenna/cable analysis, antenna alignment, PIM testing, power metering, Gigabit Ethernet testing and personal RF monitoring products that Livingston stocks from leading manufacturers. By mixing and matching different items then bundling them together they can benefit from a 10% discount in the overall rental cost.

These kits enable the renting of cutting edge instrumentation in the most cost-effective and versatile way yet. They allow Livingston’s customers to create a bespoke multi-element equipment rental solution that satisfies their specific test requirements without putting unnecessary strain onto their financial reserves.

As Reinier Treur, Marketing Director at Livingston, comments “Our test kits mean we can now supply various industry sectors with highly optimised, extremely flexible equipment rental solutions that have the most favourable price/performance characteristics. They clearly demonstrate the numerous advantages of following a rental strategy rather than resorting to direct purchase.”
