The Agilent wireless network optimization test platform for RF engineering and operation teams enables WiMAX test for IEEE 802.16e-2005 drive-test capabilities through a scalable, integrated, air interface measurement system. This software enhancement helps network equipment manufacturers and service providers identify interference issues and neighboring cell site configuration problems, enabling the smooth introduction and ongoing maintenance of WiMAX capabilities that operate in IEEE 802.16e-2005 wireless broadband data networks. The Agilent WiMAX Optimization Solution is the latest version of the new 4G air interface technology, enhanced for ultra high-speed packet data transfer with Quality of Service (QoS). It enables 4G wireless communications systems to deliver business-critical data services such as video telephony, video conferencing and video streaming downloads, with network-enforced QoS to guarantee the performance of the service. This platform is used to support integration and maintenance of 2G, 3G and 4G networks, obtain comprehensive call-performance statistics and quantify the end-user’s experience for both voice and data.
