MIMO, Wave 2 Test Support Added to Mobile WiMAX Measurement Solutions

Tue, 09/25/2007 - 11:26am
Agilent Technologies Inc.’s Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA), Signal Studio and Mobile WiMAX Test Set measurement solutions have been enhanced to facilitate testing of the WiMAX Forum®'s Wave 2 system profiles. These standardized profiles specify options such as Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO). With their ability to accurately test MIMO and other Wave 2 profile functionality, the company’s measurement devices provide up-to-date tools for engineers requiring signal analysis, signal generation and end-to-end functional test of Mobile WiMAX. Agilent's 89601A VSA and N7615B Signal Studio measurement products offer a range of new test capabilities that support physical (PHY) layer signal generation and analysis for Wave 2 system profiles. Specific capabilities include matrix A and matrix B signals for downlink, uplink collaborative MIMO, and creation of HARQ bursts and uplink sounding zones. N7615B Signal Studio also provides MIMO fading embedded in a waveform. This capability enables testing of MIMO receivers without the added expense of fading hardware or software. The Agilent E6651A Mobile WiMAX Test Set incorporates flexible base-station emulation, IP traffic support and a unique ability to make on-board RF parametric measurements in one integrated unit.
