SANTA CLARA, Calif. and FLEET, U.K. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Anite plc (LSE: AIE), a global leader in testing technology for the wireless industry, today announced the first shipments of their LTE UE protocol tester. This is the first product in a planned portfolio of 3GPP LTE R&D test products developed on Agilent’s new E6620 wireless communications test set platform.

The Anite SAT LTE Protocol Tester with Development Toolset was created as part of a partnership between Agilent and Anite, announced in November 2007. Featuring an impressive breadth and depth of features, this first-to-market SAT LTE Protocol Tester is ideal for engineers working in the early protocol design of LTE mobile phones. It features a suite of development test tools presented in an integrated development environment that includes simple-to-use GUIs, a developer’s API and development aids for rapid generation of Layer 1-3 test applications. The Development Toolset is an intuitive, yet powerful, test environment yielding faster time-to-market and improved product quality with reduced investment.

Agilent’s new E6620A test set provides a powerful, common hardware platform and 3GPP-compliant protocol stack for building scalable test solutions across the LTE UE R&D lifecycle. As an advanced, one-box test set for LTE, it offers real-time, system-rate network emulation for L1/L2/L3 uplink and downlink via RF or digital baseband. It is designed to support MIMO and protocol conformance test, with full RF measurement capabilities.

“The E6620 builds on Agilent’s broad LTE portfolio by providing a powerful and scalable platform designed to cover the LTE UE development lifecycle with a range of solutions -- from early protocol development to conformance test,” said Niels Faché, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Division. “Delivering industry-leading protocol test capability to LTE designers demonstrates our commitment to the LTE marketplace -- providing advanced test solutions when our customers need them, and ensuring they deliver successful LTE products to market while meeting their aggressive time-to-market goals.”
