Agilent, ETS-Lindgren Aid In WiMAX Radiated Tests

Agilent Technologies and ETS-Lindgren have been selected by AT4 wireless to supply WiMAX test equipment for radiated performance testing (RPT). AT4 wireless is the lead test lab for the industry group, WiMAX Forum(R) and the first worldwide WiMAX Forum Designated Certification Laboratory. The test system includes an ETS-Lindgren AMS-8500 antenna measurement system, Agilent EXA signal analyzer and Agilent's E6651A Mobile WiMAX(TM) test set. According to Fernando E. Hardasmal, CEO of AT4 wireless (Herndon, VA), "Given that RPT will be introduced as part of certification testing for Mobile WiMAX in 2008, AT4 wireless has been working hard with our partners to provide the WiMAX industry with the test facilities and test sets they need." The RPT testing solution, hosted at AT4 wireless laboratories in Spain and the US, can perform both two-dimensional (2D or polar) and three-dimensional (3D or spherical) antenna pattern measurements on transmit power and receiver sensitivity for notebook computers, PCMCIA cards, and other terminals employing WiMAX technology.
