AT&T Issues CEQ Numbers for 3M’s PIM Reduction Materials

AT&T has recently approved and issued CEQ numbers for 3M™ PIM Reduction Kit 1300 and 3M™ External PIM Absorber 1000.  These products are intended to mitigate conducted external PIM, which is not affected by traditional shielding methods.  Easy to install and no downtime required, the 3M materials do not interfere with antenna brackets and PIM hunting is not required.  Just peel-and-stick at the locations specified, that’s it!

Conducted PIM: What it is, why it occurs and what you can do

Conducted PIM can negatively affect your wireless network performance. Learn about its key characteristics versus more conventional forms of PIM and how you can quickly and easily mitigate it with new 3M material solutions.

Understanding External PIM: Radiated vs. Conducted

Passive intermodulation (PIM) is a well-known source of noise for the wireless industry. But do you know the difference between conducted and radiated PIM? While both come from external sources and can have a huge impact on your system, conducted PIM is consistently overlooked. Discover the difference, why it matters and how to deal with conducted PIM.

Discover the science behind Passive Intermodulation (PIM) 

Also known as the “rusty bolt effect,” passive intermodulation (PIM) is a serious issue in the wireless industry, and one that has been growing over time. Constant installation of new equipment along with higher density of modulation symbols compound into difficulties caused by PIM. Explore the science of PIM to take a closer look and discover why it matters, and what you can do to address it. Why is External PIM a challenge? Passive Intermodulation (PIM) can have a major impact on network performance and capacity. And while PIM has been known in the wireless industry for a long time,
