DALLAS, Dec. 1, 2008
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it is demonstrating its comprehensive femtocell design and test capabilities here at the Femtocells USA event, Dec. 1-3. Included in its offering is the first 3GPP LTE femtocell test system used to test reference design.
Agilent, the world leader in test and measurement solutions, is at the forefront of emerging markets such as femtocells. Also known as access point base stations, femtocells are small base stations typically designed for indoor use in residential or small-business environments. They connect to a service provider's network via the end user's broadband Internet.
Agilent announced this femtocell reference design test solution - the industry's first - in July 2008. The solution includes an Agilent MXA signal analyzer with the Agilent 89600 Series Vector Signal Analysis (VSA) software and its 3GPP LTE modulation analysis option. It provides RF and baseband engineers the industry's most comprehensive signal analysis solution for physical layer testing and troubleshooting.
Agilent is also displaying these technologies at Femtocells USA:
"Our advances in testing for femtocells will significantly contribute to the market delivery of this innovative technology," said Guy Sene, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Signal Analysis Division. "Building on our leadership with LTE, WiMAX(tm) and MIMO testing, along with our multiyear track record of providing base-station test equipment, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to meet customers' time-to-market goals with this technology,"
Agilent offers femtocell design and test equipment spanning the entire lifecycle -- from R&D through manufacturing to network deployment and service assurance. Additional information is available at www.agilent.com/find/femtocell.
