LAS VEGAS -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced six new models for its W1314A measurement receiver platform that offer expanded band coverage. They are designed to simultaneously measure all wireless technologies in all RF bands in a given market using a single unit.

The Agilent receivers enable network equipment manufacturers and wireless operators' RF engineering teams to effectively deploy, optimize and troubleshoot all technologies in their own networks by quickly identifying coverage and interference problems. In addition, they offer the ability to assess how all competitive networks in the market compare from an overall coverage perspective, regardless of the technology they use.

"As wireless networks add more technologies in more bands, and providers have the same or fewer number of people to do the work, Agilent's objective is to arm them with RF optimization tools that help them do their jobs easier and faster," said Jonathan Dunbar, general manager of Agilent's Drive Test business. "With our ability to measure multiple technologies simultaneously and cover eight bands in a single unit, our new receivers bring wireless service providers the opportunity for a step function increase in drive-test efficiency."
