Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced its ongoing commitment to LTE and other emerging 4G solutions. Agilent LTE test solutions include design simulation software with connected solutions for in-depth simulation; cross-domain test capabilities for digital to RF architectures (DigRF v4); base station (eNodeB) test; real-time eNodeB testing; and, signal generation and analysis solutions for early module test including FDD, TD-LTE and MIMO.
“We are committed to test-technology leadership and differentiation through our expert application solutions in next-generation standards such as LTE,” said Ron Nersesian, president of Agilent’s Electronic Measurement Group. “Creating the test solutions for these wireless communications areas remains an integral part of our portfolio, and current and future strategy.”
The recent announcement that Agilent is divesting its network solutions business to JDSU involves network assurance solutions, network protocol test and drive test products focused on wireless network service providers.
