Tool Provides Unique Troubleshooting and Expert Analysis for Rapid Deployment and Optimization of UMTS Release 6 Networks
BARCELONA, Spain, 3GSM, Booth D45, Feb. 12, 2007
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the industry's first real-time expert analysis tool for UMTS Release 6 networks enabling R&D, system test and operations engineers to rapidly troubleshoot, deploy and optimize mobile networks for UMTS evolutionary technologies.
Today's 3G UMTS networks are evolving to deliver increased capacity, reliability and data performance. As mobile network operators shift focus from increasing downlink data rates, they face a new challenge -- deploying UMTS High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) and other Release 6 features without impacting the quality of existing services.
Mobile operators are further challenged to adapt the transport layer to support the increased needs of the evolving radio access network. As a result, operators must manage a hybrid of ATM and IP-based radio access networks that interoperate seamlessly.
Agilent's J7837A 3GPP R6 HSUPA technology option for the J7830A UMTS Signaling Analyzer platform is the first solution to deliver a real-time troubleshooting and expert-analysis system for evolving UMTS networks. Network equipment manufactures and operators now have a single integrated analysis environment to test and optimize HSUPA and other Release 6 features within mixed RAN environments without sacrificing the ability to optimize already-deployed technologies.
The key benefits of the Agilent UMTS Signaling Analyzer's real-time troubleshooting and expert-analysis system for 3GPP R6 HSUPA are:
"In a landscape of rapid 3G network evolution, operators are challenged to cost-effectively deploy new features and services." said Chris Witt, general manager of Agilent's Next Generation Wireless Division. "Agilent's signaling analyzer solutions for the UMTS evolution enable operators to protect existing investments in tools and infrastructure while minimizing the costs associated with deploying new technologies."
The J7837A 3GPP R6 HSUPA technology option for Agilent's J7830A Signaling Analyzer is available now.
