Agilent Offers Testing for Wireless Video Streaming

Agilent Technologies announced a test and optimization solution to verify the quality of service (QoS) for wireless video streaming. The company's Network Optimization Platform correlates RF measurements and subscribers' service experience to reduce troubleshooting and problem-resolution time, producing a higher-performing network and better QoS. The drive-test solution that measures network connection time, packet loss, buffer time, stream set-up time, jitter, bit rate measurements and other key video streaming performance indicators, giving RF engineers insight into their network's air interface performance.

Agilent said its automated data service tests ensure high QoS for all major wireless services, including video streaming, video telephony, website browsing, e-mail, multimedia message service (MMS), short message service (SMS), and FTP data transfers. The solution is technology-independent, monitoring all wireless networks such as UMTS, CDMA 2000, EDGE, WLAN and HSDPA.
