Agilent Technologies' UXM Wireless Test Set Accelerates Marvell's LTE-Advanced Category 7 Chipset Development

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 6, 2014

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the successful verification of full Category 7 data throughput with Marvell's latest chipset design using the new Agilent E7515A UXM wireless test set.

Agilent and Marvell worked in concert to achieve sustained bidirectional 300 Mbps downlink/100 Mbps uplink data throughput using 3GPP release 10 downlink and uplink carrier aggregation.

"This milestone represents yet another example of the powerful capabilities of the new UXM platform," said Guy Séné, Agilent president, Electronic Measurement. "The UXM's future-ready architecture is designed to meet today's 4G test challenges and much more. This exciting accomplishment demonstrates Agilent's commitment to delivering industry-leading test solutions to the wireless market."

The UXM, recently introduced by Agilent and now shipping in volume, is the most highly integrated signaling test set created for functional and RF design validation in the 4G era and beyond. With the product's multiple cells, carrier aggregation, MIMO up to 4x2 and integrated fading, users can assess design readiness with greater confidence.

UXM product information is available at www.agilent.com/find/UXM. High-resolution images are available at www.agilent.com/find/UXM_images. A short video introducing the UXM and its capabilities is available on YouTube.
