With the Agilent Technologies E6703I
W-CDMA/HSPA lab application,
developers have the only instrument
available that provides a systematic
approach to root-cause analysis of
high throughput issues in the mobile
protocol stack; from MAC to IP.
Get to RF conformance faster
The E6703I is the only solution
available providing both signaling
variables and measurements for
testing 3GPP TS34.121 Sections 5, 6,
7, and 9. Others can emulate HSPA,
but only the Agilent solution drives the
mobile into the correct state for the
latest HSPA testing required by 3GPP.
Quickly test any design change
With support for voice, video, short
message service (SMS), multi-media
messaging service (MMS), cell
broadcast SMS (CBSMS), circuitswitched data, and packet data
call connections, design changes
in anything from RF to TCP can be
quickly validated with a complete
regression test of mobile functions
right at your desk.
Helping You Get Your Job Done Faster
Fast and flexible signaling—
with you in control of network operations
Our network emulation is designed to
make connecting calls fast and
simple—and give you choices. We have
pulled some of the most commonly
requested parameters up from the
protocol stack, providing many different
connection scenarios without requiring
you to fully understand the 3GPP stack
and a complex scripting language. The
E6703I delivers the control you need to
get your job done faster.
The world’s wireless
applications brought right to
your fingertips
Agilent lab applications bring testing
and tuning end-user applications right
to your desk—without limiting how far
your device may search when looking
for real content. With our industryleading SMS/MMS/cell broadcast
messaging capabilities, live end-to-end
video conferencing, and blazing fast
packet connections to the Internet
over RF, you have the capability to test
most mobile applications fully without
