Agilent E6474A Wireless Network
Optimization Platform
Configuration Guide
The purpose of this configuration guide is to assist you in ordering the correct system
configuration for your application.
The Agilent E6474A wireless network optimization platform is used to obtain RF coverage
measurements and service performance measurements for wireless communications
networks. The Windows® based software runs on a PC that interfaces with an Agilent
digital RF receiver and with cdmaOne, cdma2000, HSDPA, UMTS, GSM, GPRS, EDGE,
and iDEN phones. The system can be configured to include receivers and phones from
one or a combination of technologies simultaneously. The system can control up to four
phones.

The E6474A licenses are only delivered on a USB key. A parallel key must be ordered separately if required.
Refer to the Software License section below for information on the Keyless License features.
MapX is required for release 10.0 onwards to support mapping features. Release 9.x and earlier did not require
this option.
E6474A-710 is a “server” application, used with E6474A-700, and requires to be run on a separate PC platform
from the optimization software. E6474A-710 is provided with a CD containing software and documentation, a
Server Installation Guide and a Parallel port software license key. Refer to the Wireless Data Measurements
data sheet for further details (literature number 5988-1507EN).
WAMS Lite is available as a low cost entry point to basic service testing. Tests included are FTP test, PING, voice
connectivity, video connectivity, AT commands, and DOS commands only.
Keyless Software Licensing
Server-based keyless software licensing is offered as an alternative to the default
hardware key-based licensing. Software licensing provides the ability to maintain a pool
of E6474A measurement licenses on a server and then distributes those licenses to client
drive-test PCs using a check-out process. Typically only one server application is required
per customer. This licensing option is aimed at customers managing more than twenty
E6474A systems.
