Frost & Sullivan's research philosophy originates with its CEO's 360-Degree
Perspective™, which serves as the foundation of its TEAM Research™
methodology. This unique approach enables the company to determine how
best-in-class companies worldwide manage growth, innovation and leadership.
Based on the findings of this best practices research, Frost & Sullivan
selected the Anritsu PIM Master MW82119A for the award. Analysts made the
selection using five criteria: Innovative Element of the Product; Leverage of
Leading-Edge Technologies in Product; Value-Added Features/Benefits; Increased
Customer ROI; and Customer Acquisition/Penetration Potential.

"Our market-leading position in field test and strong customer relationships
helped us recognize the need for instrumentation that can accurately test
passive intermodulation. Anritsu leveraged its existing handheld analyzer
technologies, as well as our market understanding, to design PIM Master. Its
wide acceptance in the market and acknowledgement by Frost & Sullivan as the
best new product for PIM testing underscores that the MW82119A is a truly
innovative test solution," said Donn Mulder, Senior Vice President, Anritsu
Company U.S.

Among the PIM Master differentiators noted by Frost & Sullivan was the
significant reduction in size and weight of the PIM Master MW82119A compared
to available solutions in the market. Anritsu's patented Distance-to-PIM™
(DTP), which was called "the de facto standard in the industry" by Frost &
Sullivan, was also a key advantage. Anritsu's service and support,
specifically its PIM training courses, were also cited as reasons for naming
the PIM Master MW82119A product of the year.

"Strong innovation skills, years of experience in the wireless test equipment
market, and a deep understanding of environmental conditions and customer
requirements in field applications have helped Anritsu raise the bar in the
portable PIM test equipment market. The feature-enriched PIM Master MW82119A
is a strong value proposition for customers and justifies Anritsu receiving
the 2013 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award in the Global Portable
PIM Test Equipment Market," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Director, Jessy
Cavazos.
