Agilent Technologies' Measurement Systems Division and Wireless Business Unit has won a $1 million-contract jointly with AT4 Wireless (formerly CETECOM Spain) for fixed and mobile WiMAX conformance test and regulatory test systems with Telecom Technology Center (TTC) Taiwan.

"This is a further step in the successful rollout of WiMAX in the Asia region and our close relationship with AT4 Wireless," said Amir Aghdaei, VP and general manager of Agilent's measurement systems division. "With our strong local systems integration and support presence, and our working closely with AT4 Wireless, we were able to meet the customer's needs for a complete WiMAX RF and protocol conformance test solution with the lowest risk."

Agilent's measurement systems division will provide regulatory test system, project management, installation and training services. Meanwhile, AT4 Wireless' systems division will provide fixed and mobile WiMAX radio and protocol conformance test system based on its proprietary MINT T2110 architecture. The latter's labs division will train TTC employees on test procedures for WiMAX Forum Certified products.

The MINT T2110 Conformance Test System is the official radio conformance test system for WiMAX certification of IEEE 802.16-2004 and ETSI HiperMAN-based devices. MINT T2110 covers the transmitter and receiver test cases for base stations and subscriber stations according to the WiMAX CS 103 001 test specification.

"We have enjoyed a good relationship with Agilent for many years, starting in Bluetooth, and more recently the 802.16 WiMAX communication technologies," said Luis Fernando Martinez, general director of AT4 Wireless. "WiMAX represents an excellent new area of mutual cooperation between our organizations."

TTC is a government-affiliated entity that provides engineering support and local regulatory compliance test services to communications equipment manufacturers based in Taiwan as well as those outside the country planning.
