Agilent announces Bluetest support of Agilent PXT for LTE over-the-air testing

By Telecom
Lead Team: Agilent Technologies announced that Bluetest AB supports Agilent’s
PXI wireless communications test set. The Bluetest Reverberation Test System
uses the Agilent PXT test set to evaluate LTE devices over the air.

OTA testing
of LTE user equipment is essential to evaluate and prove performance prior to
commercial deployment. Bluetest offers a range of fast and accurate solutions
to these measurement challenges.

performance of our measurement systems relies heavily on the capability of the
test equipment we support, so we are pleased to announce that, in working
closely with Agilent, we now offer this complete solution to our customers,”

to perform MIMO OTA tests in an isotropic multipath environment. Bluetest
offers measurement options for all cellular standards and many other wireless
communication protocols.

The Agilent
PXT wireless communication test set represents a significant breakthrough in
testing LTE user equipment. It incorporates flexible base station/network
emulation and RF parametric tests into one integrated unit and extends
Agilent’s unmatched portfolio of LTE test solutions for development and
verification. The PXT hardware is configurable with a number of advanced test
and analysis software options.
