SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- March 4, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the second edition of its
book “LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless: Design and Measurement
Challenges,” adding LTE-Advanced and more to its in-depth examination of the
3GPP LTE cellular technology and the challenges it poses to engineering design
and test teams. Agilent introduced the new edition at Mobile World Congress,
Feb. 25, in Barcelona, Spain.

With more than 40 authors and now at 648 pages, this edition (published by
Wiley) provides technical and practical knowledge about the complex LTE and
LTE-Advanced technology. The content comes from Agilent engineers working with
the technology on a daily basis, both in the lab and on the committees that
are defining the LTE standards.

This edition is updated with the latest 3GPP standards, including Release 11,
and provides insights looking forward to Release 12. It has more detail on
physical and upper layer signaling, MIMO and advanced performance testing on
receivers and transmitters. It covers new material on functional testing and
the latest on RF and signaling conformance testing. It also has a new section
on non-signaling manufacturing test.

Moray Rumney, the technical editor, joined Hewlett-Packard/Agilent
Technologies in 1984, after completing a bachelor’s degree in electronics from
Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University. Rumney joined the European
Telecommunications Standards Institute in 1991 and 3GPP in 1999, where he was
a significant contributor to the development of type approval tests for GSM
and UMTS. He currently represents Agilent at 3GPP RAN WG4, where the air
interface for HSPA+ and LTE-Advanced is being developed. Rumney’s current
focus is in MIMO over-the-air test methods. Rumney has published many
technical articles in the field of cellular communications and is a regular
speaker and chairman at industry conferences. He is a member of IET and a
chartered engineer.
