If the isolation between the selected and unselected ports is not high, leakage of unwanted signals could degrade the carrier-to-interference ratio.
In addition, the C/I mode sets a carrier-to-interference ratio with a user-provided interfering signal, and the Generator mode allows the required noise density to be entered.
