Agilent Technologies Inc. has unveiled a wireless networking test set and OFDMA measurement application software, forming a complete one-box transmitter and receiver test solution for mobile WiMAX devices.

Engineers are constantly faced with time-to-market pressures, making sure their products get to market ahead of the competition, while at the same time protecting profit potential and ensuring the shortest possible test times. Additionally, testing high volumes of mobile WiMAX devices requires a standard-compliant 802.16e-2005 physical layer test tool. Agilent's new N8300A one-box parametric WiMAX test set provides just such a solution to address these challenges, while the associated Agilent N6301A Measurement Application ensures fast and accurate measurement analysis of mobile WiMAX signals.

The Agilent N8300A wireless networking test set is based on an architecture that integrates the company's 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.

"These new products complement Agilent's portfolio of WiMAX test solutions, which span the entire WiMAX lifecycle, from R&D through manufacturing," said C.J. Meurell, European operations general manager for Agilent's mobile broadband division's WiMAX portfolio. "Their superior performance and benefits are further evidence of our commitment to continually updating our mobile WiMAX measurement solutions to keep pace with evolving engineering requirements."

Agilent's N8300A wireless networking test set, with associated N6301A 802.16 OFDMA Measurement Application software, will be available in October. Pricing for the N8300A, including the Agilent N8300A-505 test set and N6301A-1FP software license, is at $57,750.
