PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the communications industry's first multi-user test and troubleshooting solution for complex mobile networks. Agilent's new Multi-User and Call Manager applications for its Signaling Analyzer test solution enable leading mobile network manufacturers and tier-one 3G network operators worldwide to deploy complex 3G networks faster and drive down the cost of troubleshooting.

The Multi-User application's innovative approach to wireless network analysis enables multiple engineers to independently and simultaneously access the same hardware probes without affecting other users or overall system performance. Data captured from multiple independent probes can be correlated in a single client view, which enables greater system scalability and time-synchronized, multi-segment, multi-interface analysis of wireless network problems. Using this distributed testing model, a greater number of engineers can more efficiently use existing hardware probes, decreasing hardware costs.

Using Call Manager, service providers can diagnose and understand difficult network problems. Rapid isolation and problem analysis is possible using Signaling Analyzer's unique, industry-leading express drill-down functionality linked with Call Manager's ability to perform complex queries on massive amounts of stored measurements. With a combination of real-time and historic analysis tools, Call Manager helps engineers find problems among millions of calls in the wireless network.

"Agilent's new multi-user architecture redefines the mobile network monitoring and troubleshooting industry," said Steve Witt, general manager and vice president of Agilent's Network Systems Test Division. "The technology and insight enabled by Multi-User and Call Manager is changing the industry by moving away from hardware-based diagnostic tools to an integrated systems-based approach to testing in lab environments as well as operational networks. The response from customers worldwide is extremely positive."
