Tektronix Inc. has announced the K1297-G35 Protocol Tester for mobile equipment manufacturers and mobile operators. According to the company, the equipment provides the highest level of test performance available, and allows the testing of new technologies such as HSDPA and HSUPA at data rates of up to four times 14.4Mbps.

Network equipment manufacturers need to address risks associated with the rapid introduction of new technologies in order to maximize customer satisfaction and minimize operational expenditures. Test labs require high- performance test equipment capable of handling the peak data rates introduced by technologies such as HSDPA and HSUPA. In addition, the launch and deployment of new mobile network products require simulation under high- capacity conditions (i.e., when the number of subscribers attached to the same network node reaches or even surpasses the one million boundary).

Tektronix said its new protocol tester enables customers to test 3G networks under simulated yet realistic conditions. Test applications can cover user-plane traffic representing simulated voice, data and circuit-switched video applications as well as control-plane traffic such as the signaling messages sent during network transactions. The device also provides the scalable platform needed to support multi-interface, high-performance as well as high-capacity test applications.

"Customers are challenged by the complexity associated with implementing new technologies such as HSDPA, HSUPA and video call service," said Arif Kareem, VP for network diagnostics at Tektronix. "We are committed to enabling the successful deployment of 3G and 3.5G technologies with unique test features that provide scalability from function to performance testing. The K1297-G35 offers the highest speed test environment and the broadest range of protocols and interfaces available that enable our customers to overcome technology and business challenges now and in the future."
