  on Conformance and Design Verification Systems

Business Wire

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- October 29, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced new software options for
the T4010S LTE RF and T4020S LTE RRM test systems. The new capabilities
provide coverage for LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation test cases as defined by
the 3GPP.

The Agilent T4000S series enables user equipment (UE) developers to
stress-test their designs and prepare for certification prior to deployment.

Independent test labs and network operators use these products to assess and
ensure UE performance and behavior. The recently added carrier aggregation
capabilities have been successfully verified and adopted by one of the major
network operators in North America.

The enhancements make it possible to perform several of the required MIMO and
fading tests, with two downlink component carriers, with just a single
instrument delivering the most compact and scalable LTE-Advanced solution test
set available.

“We are very excited to further extend our strong position in wireless test by
adding LTE-Advanced capabilities to our test systems,” said Joe DePond, vice
president and general manager of Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Operation.
“Carrier aggregation represents the immediate future of LTE-Advanced cellular
deployments. Our T4000S systems can now deliver cutting-edge conformance and
R&D test solutions for this important technology.”
