Santa Clara, Calif. Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced a wireless networking test set and OFDMA measurement application software as a complete one-box transmitter and receiver test solution for mobile WiMAX devices. This test tool is designed for cell phone, ODM and CM manufacturing engineers testing WiMAX mobile subscriber devices or modules that use IEEE 802.16e-2005.
The N8300A one-box parametric WiMAX test set provides a standard-compliant 802.16e-2005 physical layer test tool while the associated N6301A measurement application delivers measurement analysis of Mobile WiMAX signals.
The N8300A Wireless Networking Test Set is based on an architecture that integrates Agilent's state-of-the-art Vector Signal Analysis and Vector Signal Generator hardware, and features an easy-to-use front panel graphical user interface and SCPI command set. Measurement algorithms and software leveraged from WiMAX R&D test tools enables fast test development and measurement traceability through the product lifecycle, said Agilent.
The N8300A Wireless Networking Test Set and N6301A Measurement Application will be showcased at WiMAX World 2007, Sept. 25-27, and at the Forum de l'Electronique, Sept. 25-27. Agilent will also display Mobile WiMAX measurement solutions for R&D, pre-conformance test, manufacturing, and installation and maintenance including MIMO design and verification with the Advanced Design System, MXA, Agilent MXG, Power Meter and 89601A Vector Signal Analysis software solutions.
