AMSTERDAM -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced four new products that extend Agilent's comprehensive portfolio of wireless connectivity test solutions for wireless LAN (WLAN), Bluetooth(TM), ultra-wide band (UWB) and WiMAX devices. New capabilities simplify and speed test setup and offer improved performance to reduce design cycles and the cost of manufacturing wireless devices.

"Differentiating among the profusion of current and emerging standards for wireless networking is challenging," said Pat Byrne, general manager and vice president of Agilent's RF and MW Communications Business Unit. "Agilent provides the largest portfolio of products, technology insight and services to help manufacturers unravel the intricacies of devices based on new and emerging technologies. This product introduction, which supports all stages of the product life cycle from R&D through production, reinforces our commitment to the wireless connectivity market."

In a separate release:

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced the industry's first one-box test set that measures both WLAN 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth(TM) modules from a single platform. The Agilent N4010A wireless connectivity test set with WLAN option 102/103 combines a fully calibrated vector signal generator and wide bandwidth signal analyzer into a single test set, maximizing manufacturers' flexibility and significantly lowering the cost of test by eliminating the need to purchase separate WLAN and Bluetooth measurement systems.

The test set supports all chipset manufacturers and provides simpler system integration, improved RF performance and faster, more accurate measurements than golden radio-based systems(1). These capabilities combined with the test set's low price significantly reduce the cost of testing WLAN and Bluetooth modules.

"WLAN and Bluetooth module manufacturers need test equipment that will help them quickly ramp production lines to volume," said George Taylor, vice president and general manager of Agilent's South Queensferry Division. "Agilent's one-box test set helps contract and original device manufacturers increase throughput by providing fast, accurate and repeatable measurements at a cost significantly less than purchasing and integrating multiple test set components."
