Agilent Technologies Inc. is collaborating with China's Southeast University for R&D on 3GPP-Long Term Evolution (LTE) systems performance. The company is providing test instruments and funding for researching ways to obtain higher data rates and high-quality services with increased spectrum and power efficiency.

Mike Kawasaki, education program manager at Agilent, said that the company sees the R&D collaboration with Southeast University as a continuation of Agilent's drive to be a key technology partner for innovative research in academia. "This collaboration enables Agilent to make a contribution to the future of wireless communication and gives the university access to our resources, empowering further success of scientists in academia," he said.

Even before the collaboration, Southeast University has used Agilent instruments to generate signals with different RF impairments, acquire signals with different RF impairments for modeling and measurement.

Wei Hong, project team leader who is also director of the State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves at Southeast University, elaborated that with the collaboration, the university is investigating credible measurement methods of RF circuits and sub-systems for 3GPP-LTE and analyzing impacts of RF impairments on 3GPP-LTE systems. "We have achieved some interesting results with this collaboration and some of them will be published in academic journals. We hope to promote research and employments of 3GPP-LTE in China and the rest of world," Hong said.

The State Key Laboratory of Millimeter Waves in China focuses on the circuits and networks of microwave and millimeter wave, electromagnetic wave propagation, scattering and radiation, radio frequency and antennas techniques in wireless communication systems, and the subjects of the basic theory.

The collaboration is a result of Agilent's University Relations Program. The program supports scientific work with universities worldwide through direct grants and collaborative research and by sponsoring undergraduate and graduate internship opportunities for students to gain practical work experience in technical and nontechnical disciplines.
