Agilent Technologies, Anite and Signalion to Demonstrate LTE End-to-End Streaming Video at Informa LTE World Summit


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A), Anite plc (LSE: AIE) and Signalion GmbH today announced they will demonstrate 3GPP LTE end-to-end streaming video for the first time with commercially available test equipment. The demonstration will occur at the Informa LTE World Summit in London on Nov. 18. It will feature LTE test equipment including the Agilent E6620A LTE wireless communications test set, Anite SAT LTE Protocol Development Toolset and Signalion LTE UE simulator.

“Agilent is committed to delivering market-leading LTE UE test solutions across the entire development lifecycle on our E6620 platform,” said Niels Faché, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Division. “Working in partnership with Anite, we are creating test solutions that meet the earliest LTE R&D testing needs -- empowering today’s UE developers to stay at the forefront of this fast-evolving technology.”

The upcoming demonstration is one result of the ongoing strategic partnership between Agilent and Anite to deliver market-leading LTE UE development tools to wireless engineers. Using these tools, LTE developers and their managers can test designs earlier and more completely; thereby shortening development cycles and accelerating time to market.

“This LTE streaming-video demonstration shows that we have accelerated LTE far beyond the conceptual phase, and further highlights our role in supporting all phases of our customers’ development process,” said Paul Beaver, business unit director, Anite. “Our partnership with Agilent plays a pivotal role in pioneering the LTE ecosystem and allows us to maintain a constant lead in the emerging LTE market.”

As one of three key components of the LTE streaming video demonstration, Agilent’s E6620A test set provides a powerful, common hardware platform, integrating a 3GPP release 8-compliant protocol stack (jointly developed with Anite), for building scalable test solutions across the LTE UE R&D lifecycle. Helping to significantly shorten design cycles, it offers real-time, system-rate network emulation for L1/L2/L3 uplink and downlink via RF or digital baseband.

Anite’s advanced SAT LTE Protocol Development Toolset (commercially shipping on the E6620A platform) provides a suite of development tools for UE designers. It is the first of the Agilent/Anite portfolio of test solutions designed around a common protocol stack and test environment, enabling rapid development and debug cycles to speed LTE UE protocol design.

Signalion’s SORBAS LTE Test UE is used to test evolving LTE mobile communications infrastructure. Its 3GPP LTE mobile terminal capabilities, coupled with additional advanced test interfaces and features, make the SORBAS LTE Test UE an ideal tool for network infrastructure equipment developers. SORBAS provides an air-interface test system for functional and load tests of LTE applications.

“With LTE developments rapidly occurring throughout the world, our LTE-specific test products are critical to providing customers the flexibility they need to develop reliable products,” said Dr. Matthias Stege, director sales and marketing, Signalion. “The Success of LTE will depend on high data rate applications, thus the LTE streaming video demonstration with Agilent and Anite further enhances our position as a leading LTE solutions provider and offers us yet another means of building customer confidence in our solutions.”
