User Equipment (UE) Device Support Provides Interactive Measurements for LTE and All Major Wireless Technologies; Aids Early-to-Market Network Roll-out
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced it will introduce and demonstrate a phone solution extension for its LTE Drive Test portfolio at the 2010 Mobile World Congress, Hall 8, Stand A77, Barcelona, Spain, Feb. 15-19. The phone solution extension will expand the coverage monitoring capability of Agilent’s industry-leading Drive Test Receiver to include comprehensive interactive LTE network-performance testing.
“Agilent is one of the few test vendors to offer an LTE phone solution”
The UE solution also enables simultaneous performance measurements of all major wireless technologies. This is a critical capability since LTE technology will interoperate with legacy networks. The phone solution can export results to Agilent’s Signaling Analyzer Real Time (SART) for LTE, providing an industry-unique end-to-end solution including the network core, base-stations and mobiles.
“Agilent is one of the few test vendors to offer an LTE phone solution,” said Dave Stewart, general manager of Agilent’s Drive Test Business. “The scope, precision and accuracy of its measurements, the built-in pedigree in other wireless technologies, and the integration with SART for end-to-end protocol analysis, are unparalleled in the industry. Our complete Drive Test package will help customers quickly rollout high-bandwidth LTE networks and meet today’s high-pressure, time-to-market challenges.”
Performance measurements that Agilent customers will find particularly useful include:
Agilent’s Drive Test LTE phone solution can scale to cover all RF network activities, including band clearing, troubleshooting and optimization. Users can customize the display to meet their information needs. Agilent’s recently launched companion analysis tool allows users to run reports and statistical analyses that simplify the optimization process and the evaluation of collection results.
