Agilent Technologies Inc. announced what it claims as the communications industry's first multi-user test and troubleshooting solution for complex mobile networks. The new Multi-User and Call Manager applications for its Signaling Analyzer test solution enable mobile network manufacturers and tier-one 3g network operators to deploy complex 3G networks faster and drive down the cost of troubleshooting, said the press release.

The Multi-User application's approach to wireless network analysis enables multiple engineers to independently and simultaneously access the same hardware probes without affecting other users or overall system performance. Data captured from multiple independent probes can be correlated in a single client view, which enables greater system scalability and time-synchronized, multi-segment, multi-interface analysis of wireless network problems, added Agilent.

According to Steve Witt, GM and VP of Agilent's Network Systems Test Division, the new multi-user architecture redefines the mobile network monitoring and troubleshooting industry. "The technology and insight enabled by Multi-User and Call Manager is changing the industry by moving away from hardware-based diagnostic tools to an integrated systems-based approach to testing in lab environments as well as operational networks," Witt said.

Using Call Manager, service providers can diagnose and understand difficult network problems. Rapid isolation and problem analysis is possible using Signaling Analyzer's express drill-down functionality linked with Call Manager's ability to perform complex queries on massive amounts of stored measurements, said Agilent. With a combination of real-time and historic analysis tools, Call Manager helps engineers find problems among millions of calls in the wireless network.
