Agilent Offers Drive Testing for WiMAX 802.16e-2005

Agilent Technologies introduced its WiMAX Optimization Solution for IEEE 802.16e-2005, featuring a drive-testing capability that enables WiMAX network equipment manufacturers and service providers to authenticate the actual subscriber experience in real-world WiMAX environments.

The Agilent WiMAX Optimization Solution for IEEE 802.16e-2005 is based on the Agilent E6474A network optimization test platform. The new software for WiMAX helps identify interference issues and neighboring cell site configuration problems, enabling the smooth introduction and ongoing maintenance of WiMAX capabilities that operate in IEEE 802.16e-2005 wireless broadband data networks.

Agilent said its platform can be used to support integration and maintenance of 2G, 3G and 4G networks, obtain comprehensive call-performance statistics and quantify the end-user's experience for both voice and data.
