Increased Speed, Scalability, Meet the Challenges of Expected Tenfold Rise in Traffic, Accelerating 4G Deployment and Critical Time-to-Market
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 8, 2010
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced it has added capabilities to its Signaling Analyzer Real Time (SART) for LTE. These enhancements allow wireless carriers and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to analyze an LTE-enabled tenfold plus increase in network traffic without sacrificing real-time-to-results. The SART 6.60 will be demonstrated at the 2010 Mobile World Congress, Hall 8, Stand A77, Barcelona, Spain, Feb. 15-19.
The SART's access to air-interface data sources permits industry-unique end-to-end call trace across both LTE and non-LTE network components, eliminating the multiple iterations of testing required when using individual point solutions. End-to-end visibility, along with more efficient and scalable hardware and software, accelerates 4G development, deployment and critical time to market.
Operators who once gave themselves eighteen to twenty-four months to set up UMTS want LTE networks successfully operating in nine to twelve. This can't happen if the time it takes to conduct network trials increases with the rate of traffic.
"'Deploy it right, but bring it to market fast' is today's mantra, as carriers race to realize 4G technology," said Steve Urvik, protocol analysis and diagnostics marketing manager for Agilent's Network Solutions Division. SART has performed faster and better than other solutions in side-by-side competition. It is the only system that provides end-to-end, real-time analysis, whether the focus is on network performance, RF performance, IMS service delivery, etc. This is critical when 'early to market' means 'early to market share.'"
Agilent has improved SART LTE's efficiency, speed and scope by offering:
Agilent also has increased SART's speed, scalability and cost-effectiveness with enhanced hardware intelligent processing in the probe. This provides improved user plane data management and IP packet processing allowing the software to focus on higher-level analysis.
SART 6.6 is available now. More information is available on the Web at www.agilent.com/find/sart-lte.
