Orlando, Fla. Agilent Technologies Inc. released its IEEE 802.16e 2005 protocol conformance test (PCT) product, which is based on its E6651A Mobile WiMAX Test Set.
The PCT capability was created in conjunction with Innowireless Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of test and measurement equipment for wired and wireless networks based in Korea.
When equipped with the PCT capability, Agilent's E6651A Mobile WiMAX Test Set allows equipment developers and test houses to run validated protocol test cases to verify that their implementations conform to WiMAX standards.
Developers can also create custom TTCN-3 test cases to fully stress the limits of their designs. Beginning in June 2007, Agilent plans to support subscriber station testing for WiMAX profiles 1A and 3A. Base station test and other WiMAX profiles will be supported in subsequent releases.
The addition of PCT and support for TTCN-3 test case development is the next step for the E6651A, which allows users to easily configure a wide range of network parameters through an easy-to-use Windows XP user interface and high-speed, precision measurements. It incorporates flexible base-station emulation, IP traffic support and parametric measurements into one integrated unit.
The Agilent IEEE 802.16e 2005 Protocol Conformance Test Solution, based on the Agilent E6651A Mobile WiMAX Test Set, will be available mid-year 2007. Pricing is dependent on specific system configuration and is available upon request.
