Agilent to showcase LTE, multi-standard radio, MIMO test Solutions

Agilent Technologies announced it will showcase a number of test solutions at 4G World,
Oct. 25-27, in Chicago.
The demonstrations will focus on LTE, Multi-Standard Radio 9 measurements (MSR), MIMO, and wireless link analysis using its X-Series signal analyzers. Agilent will also demonstrate RF network field analysis using the company’s handheld RF tools.
Agilent will demonstrate the following solutions at 4G World:
RF Microwave Bench and Field Test Tools
Agilent’s handheld spectrum analyzer (HSA) family and the Agilent N9923A FieldFox RF Vector Network Analyzer make RF bench and field test easier. The Agilent HSAs, covering frequencies from 9 kHz to 20 GHz, have the features needed for operating in tough field environments. The N9344C, N9343C, N9342C and N9340B HSAs automate routine tasks to save time and ensure consistent results.
The N9344C and N9343C handheld spectrum analyzers””two field-ready instruments designed for technicians and engineers who install, maintain and troubleshoot RF/microwave systems””are ideal for monitoring the spectrum and managing interference while in the field.
Multi-Standard Radio and MIMO OTA Ideal for engineers manufacturing base stations and base-station components, the new Agilent N9083A/W9083A MSR measurement application for the X-Series signal analyzers enables one-button, standards-based testing per the RF requirements defined in the TR 37 series of the 3GPP Release 9 standard. The MSR application allows engineers to perform transmitter tests on any combination of LTE-FDD, W-CDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ and GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution signals.

Wireless Link Analysis

The new 89600 WLA software is a MAC-layer complement to the company’s industry-leading 89600 VSA software. The seamless combination of vector signal analysis and wireless link analysis gives system-integration and verification engineers greater visibility into the increasingly complex and dynamic interaction between the MAC and physical layers in product designs based on  wireless standards.
The Agilent N7109A combines modular N7100 Series measurement hardware with the MIMO
capabilities of the industry-leading Agilent 89600B VSA software. The combination enables fast, informative measurements of devices that range from 2×2 to 4×4, and leaves room for future evolution beyond four channels.

The Agilent PXT wireless communications test set, the industry’s most versatile LTE test instrument, can be used to test RF parametric performance, functional end-to-end data throughput and Inter-RAT handovers. It also can be used to create protocol messages and log/analyze protocol signaling. Agilent’s solutions include bench-top instruments, software for automating parametric and
functional tests, and the GS-8800 design verification test system.

LTE UE Manufacturing Test
With fast measurements and flexible test sequencer techniques, the Agilent EXT wireless
communications test set works in synch with chipset test modes to speed calibration and verification of the latest smart phones and other wireless devices contributing to manufacturing cost reductions.
