Agilent Technologies Test Solution Selected by Universal Scientific Industrial to Fulfill Mobile WiMAX(tm) Test Needs

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 15, 2008

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that Universal Scientific Industrial Co. Ltd. (USI) will use Agilent's WiMAX(tm) manufacturing networking test set for its Mobile WiMAX test needs. The company chose Agilent because of its ability to deliver fast measurement time for USI's Mobile WiMAX module test plan requirements. USI is a leader in the design and manufacturing services (DMS) industry that focuses on product development and capability enhancement.

"We chose Agilent equipment because it delivers greater accuracy, repeatability and the faster test speeds required for our Mobile WiMAX test needs," said Albert Liu, USI vice president and general manager of Wireless Product Business Unit. "Additionally, we experienced great support and quick response to our business requirements."

The Agilent N8300A WiMAX manufacturing networking test set leverages Agilent's experience and success in the WiMAX and WLAN manufacturing market. Manufacturing engineers are constantly faced with time-to-market pressures, while protecting profit potential and ensuring the shortest possible test times. Testing high volumes of Mobile WiMAX devices requires a standard-compliant 802.16e-2005 physical layer test tool. Agilent's N8300A one-box parametric WiMAX test set addresses these challenges.

USI also purchased the Agilent N4010A, a versatile multiformat wireless connectivity test solution that can configure Bluetooth(r), ZigBee, WLAN 802.11a,b,g and 802.11n MIMO applications in R&D, integration and verification, or manufacturing. The N4010A offers the flexibility to measure the latest emerging wireless standards and increase test efficiency.

"Agilent's leadership in Mobile WiMAX manufacturing test solutions is demonstrated in this significant success with USI," said C.J. Meurell, European operations general manager for Agilent's Mobile Broadband Division's WiMAX /WLAN portfolio. "We are committed to meeting USI's critical performance needs, that's why we are continually updating our products and support to keep pace with the demanding manufacturing requirements for the deployment of WiMAX."
