Agilent Technologies Inc. announced the new E6703H W-CDMA/HSPA lab application that includes support for 42Mbps DC-HSDPA test modes and IP data connections. The application uses the recently introduced high-performance E5515E 8960 Series 10 wireless communications test-set.
The Agilent E5515E delivers sustained, end-to-end IP data throughput at 42Mbps, flexible and comprehensive RF measurements, and improved hardware capability for future requirements, making it easy and fast to stress wireless devices and verify their performance at full data-rates. The E5515E also enables LTE developers to extensively test the performance of their devices’ LTE-to-2G/3G handover, when used in conjunction with the Agilent E6621A PXT wireless test-set.
The dual-carrier approach to transporting high-speed IP data is helping to bridge the gap between the widely available 3G and 3.5G networks and full LTE deployment. The 8960 promises a comprehensive and reliable 2G/3G and 3.5G performance for RF and functional tests, including dual-carrier HSDPA tests for both RF and IP data at the full 42Mbps.
