Powerful WiMAX Tools - Agilent

Agilent Technologies Introduces Powerful Suite of Tools for WiMAX

10th November,2004

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced the industry's first design tools enabling RF and baseband engineers working at the physical (PHY) layer to create, analyze and troubleshoot orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) signals specified in the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard, often referred to as WiMAX.

The IEEE 802.16-2004 standard, which specifies air interfaces for broadband wireless access (BWA) systems, is expected to energize the BWA industry and open many opportunities to deploy systems in applications that were previously cost-prohibitive. WiMAX enables multiple services in a wireless metropolitan area network, such as wireless backhaul for telecommunications, high-bandwidth/high-reliability remote connectivity, E1/T1 replacements for small- and medium-size businesses, and residential "wireless DSL" for broadband Internet at home.

"The ability to generate, detect, demodulate and troubleshoot PHY layer signals is critical to this emerging technology and the overall success of WiMAX applications," said Pat Byrne, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Wireless Business Unit. "Agilent intends to continue developing WiMAX solutions as the market grows and the technology advances."

Agilent's portfolio of tools for designing and testing WiMAX components, subsystems and systems is comprised of Signal Studio for WiMAX (E4438C option H13), the 89600 Series vector signal analysis software (option B7S OFDM modulation analysis), the PSA Series high-performance spectrum analyzer with 80 MHz digitizer (option 122) and the Advanced Communications Model Set in Advanced Design System (ADS) 2004A.

Thorough Modulation Capability

Agilent's Signal Studio for WiMAX software for the ESG enables component designers to generate IEEE 802.16-2004-compliant signals for component test applications. Signal Studio for WiMAX allows users to select WiMAX signal parameters such as bandwidth, cyclic prefix ratio (G), sampling factor (n) and frame length as specified in the standard to configure both downlink or uplink frames.

The Advanced Communication Model Set for ADS 2004A provides modeling components that help designers create WiMAX-compliant signals and simulate OFDM base systems, such as WiMAX, WiFi and ultra-wideband (UWB). When used in a connected solution with Agilent's ESG or PSG signal generator and 89600 Series vector signal analyzer, designers have a virtual WiMAX prototyping solution.

Advanced Troubleshooting Capability

The Agilent 89600 VSA software option B7S OFDM modulation analysis enables thorough demodulation analysis and troubleshooting of OFDM PHY layer signals when combined with a variety of Agilent digitizers, including VSA, ESA and PSA spectrum analyzers, 89600 VXI signal analyzers, and Infiniium oscilloscopes. This new WiMAX software handles all WiMAX bandwidths with auto-detection of all modulation formats, plus measurement of all signaling formats, frame lengths, guard intervals and sampling factors. Used with the Agilent E4440A PSA spectrum analyzer, engineers can capture and analyze signals with up to 80 MHz bandwidth.
