Tektronix's Protocol Test Tool Selected by WiMAX Forum

The WiMAX Forum has selected Tektronix Communications' G35-WiMAX protocol test solution to verify the interoperability of WiMAX network nodes in Mobile WiMAX Forum Certified Test Laboratories around the world.

As part of the WiMAX Forum Network Interoperability Test initiative, reference networks will be set up in all WiMAX Forum Test Laboratories, against which WiMAX component vendors can test their implementation. Tektronix said its G35-WiMAX protocol test solution will serve as the reference point to analyze the responses of individual devices in test scenarios specified by the WiMAX Forum.

Tektronix' G35-WiMAX solution provides real-time decoding and advanced filtering of IEEE 802.16e R1 with Bit Error Rate Test as well as monitoring of vendor-specific R6 and WiMAX Forum compliant R3, R4, R6 and R8 interfaces for both control and user plane.
