Tektronix Expands its Mobile WiMAX Protocol Test Solution

Tektronix introduced two dedicated Mobile WiMAX (802.16e-2005) test solutions: one for functional test and WiMAX infrastructure simulation based on expanded capabilities to the G35-WiMAX solution; and one for monitoring purposes based on the Tektronix Network and Service Analyzer (NSA) platform which adds troubleshooting and performance analysis capabilities to ensure the delivery of high quality and leading edge WiMAX solutions.

Tektronix' G35-WiMAX solution was first introduced in October 2006 featuring in-depth decoding of R1 and R6 interfaces. Tektronix now completes the portfolio of functional test applications with the introduction of R1 and R3 simulation on the G35-WiMAX. Alcatel-Lucent is the first to use the G35-WiMAX solution in the development of its WiMAX (802.16e-2005) network infrastructure equipment.
