Agilent Introduces TD-LTE Drive Test System

Agilent Technologies announced TD- LTE Receiver Measurements as a software upgrade to its Agilent E6474A Drive Test Network Optimization Platform.

The software can be used on Agilent W1314A receivers to quickly verify base-station RF coverage, plot accurate coverage maps and validate planning in the early development of LTE networks. This new option builds on the existing FDD-LTE measurements in the Agilent solution to provide both FDD-LTE and TD-LTE measurements on a single measurement platform.

The W1314A receiver with the software enhancement will not only measure LTE P-SCH, S-SCH RSSI and LTE Cell-ID, but provides simultaneous measurements of the older 2G and 3G networks as well.

The Agilent drive test platform already supports HSPA+, UMTS, 1xEV DO and TD-SCDMA.
