Agilent Teams with Azimuth to Offer FMC Test Solution

Agilent Technologies is teaming with Azimuth Systems to create a fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) test solution.

The FMC test solution is expected to be commercially available in the second quarter of 2008 and will combine Agilent's 8960 Wireless Communications Test Set with the Azimuth FMC Performance Test Suite.

The Agilent 8960 Wireless Communications Test Set is a one-box test set for wireless device development, manufacturing and repair of all major 2G, 2.5G, 3G and 3.5G wireless technologies. The Azimuth FMC Performance Test Suite includes a suite of automated test scripts that streamline the testing of VoWiFi and fixed-mobile convergence products to validate the functionality, performance and seamless mobility of devices and networks. Currently used by industry-leading service providers, handset manufacturers and semiconductor vendors, this test suite provides a full range of unique, repeatable performance and interoperability tests on converged Wi-Fi/cellular devices over a broad range of real-world environment dynamics. It also measures Wi-Fi performance in areas that end-users care about most such as dropped calls, battery life and call quality.http://www.azimuthsystems.comhttp://www.agilent.com
