Agilent Technologies Inc. and Anite plc have entered into a strategic partnership to deliver industry-leading 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) test solutions to wireless R&D engineers designing next-generation mobile communications products.

Under the terms of this partnership, Agilent and Anite will provide a broad, comprehensive portfolio of solutions that address the entire UE lifecycle from early development through production test.

The 3GPP LTE standard is intended to provide a framework for the evolution of 3G toward a high-data-rate, low-latency and packet-optimized radio-access technology. Its aim is to achieve a peak downlink cell data rate of greater than 100Mbits/s, and an increase in capacity of three to five times compared with HSDPA (in the same bandwidth), with sub 5ms latency for small IP packets.

While LTE has the potential to enhance 3G networks and enable significant new service opportunities in relation to mobile TV and video, its commercial success requires the early availability of testing solutions that parallel the standard's development. Through its strategic partnership, Agilent and Anite can address this need, while better servicing customer requirements across the entire development lifecycle.

"Featuring industry-leading performance and functionality, Agilent's existing LTE solutions help R&D engineers speed the early development of their LTE designs," said Niels Fach, VP and general manager of Agilent's mobile broadband division. "Our future LTE offerings will further support all phases of R&D with scalable solutions, thereby ensuring customers meet their aggressive time to market needs, while managing development costs and R&D productivity goals."

"Our combined expertise to provide an industry-leading and scalable solution that addresses all phases of the UE development will drive development of LTE UE's to market faster and more efficiently," said Steve Rowley, CEO, Anite.
