Agilent E6651A Mobile WiMAX™ test set

Agilent E6651A
Mobile WiMAX™ test set
Technical Overview
Accelerate time-to-market for your IEEE802.16e mobile station designs
The E6651A represents a significant breakthrough in Mobile WiMAX testing. It incorporates flexible
base station emulation and RF parametric tests into one integrated unit and extends Agilent’s
unmatched portfolio of WiMAX™ test solutions for development, verification, and manufacturing
customers.
The E6651A Mobile WiMAX Test Set allows 802.16e-2005 mobile station designers and
manufacturers to move rapidly from development to volume production, and to improve the integrity
and quality of products while reducing cost.
The Agilent E6651A includes a suite of RF measurements that may be used for characterization,
calibration, and verification purposes. The test set provides flexible profile support, with RF signal
generation and signal analysis capability up to 6 GHz.
To enable mobile stations to be tested to the latest WiMAX standards, MIMO options for Wave 2
testing are available. Capabilities include an additional downlink channel for Mobile Station testing
and support for the following IO-MIMO modes:
•
Downlink Space-Time Coding (STC) (Matrix A)
•
Downlink Spatial Multiplexing (MIMO) (Matrix B)
•
Uplink Collaborative Spatial Multiplexing
With realistic base station emulation, the Mobile WiMAX test set offers a controlled environment in
which to verify network entry, traffic connection and functional performance. It provides flexibility to
configure a range of network parameters so you can test, stress, and debug the protocol and data
handling capabilities of your design. Software tools are available to enable protocol and application
testing.
With this exciting product, Agilent helps you get your design to market faster and more efficiently,
and continues to provide comprehensive tools for all stages of your product lifecycle. So, as you
move WiMAX forward, Agilent clears the way.

The E6651AS-1SY software and technical support contract (STSC) entitles you to 12 months
software updates and feature enhancements for the E6651A WiMAX test set firmware, the N6421A
WiMAX protocol logging and analysis software, the E6655A WiMAX lab application and the
N6422C/N6423C WiMAX wireless test manager software. Direct access to product experts for
technical support is also provided. The N6430A protocol and network protocol development and
conformance products have separate software and technical support contracts. N6430A protocol
development and conformance solutions are only supported with corresponding E6651A firmware
releases. Therefore, N6430A customers must purchase both PCT/NCT and E6651A STSCs to ensure
compatibility with the E6651A and validated PCT/NCT test cases releases.

E6651A Specifications
The test set will meet its warranted performance after one hour within the stated environmental
operating range plus one hour after turn on. Unless otherwise stated all specifications are valid over
the operating temperature range. Supplemental characteristics are intended to provide additional
information, useful in applying the instrument by giving typical (expected), but not warranted,
performance parameters at room temperature (20 to 30 °C). These characteristics are shown in
italics or labeled as nominal.
