Agilent Announces GS-8800 LTE Conformance Platform; Meets Test Platform Approval Criteria on Band 13

February 22, 2012

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 22, 2012 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that its U1901A GS-8800 LTE conformance test platform,registered with the Global Certification Forum, has met the Test Platform Approval Criteria (TPAC) for Band 13. In addition, the GS-8800 design verification system now has the ability to do TDD LTE RF measurements.

TPAC certification means the Agilent GS-8800 LTE conformance test platform enables users to meet their needs for development, regression and certification testing with access to more than 80 percent of certified test cases for Band 13, before initiating the final conformance test.

“Achieving TPAC on the GS-8800 is an exciting new milestone for our conformance test solutions,” saidGarrett Lees,marketing manager, Mobile Broadband Operation,Agilent Technologies. “This enables users to perform comprehensive LTE conformance testing, and bring their products to market faster and more reliably.”

The ability to do new TDD LTE RF measurements makes the GS-8800 a more versatile multi-format, multi-band and multi-mode system. The GS-8800 enables equipment designers to perform TDD LTE RF measurements during early design stages, and reduce costly product re-design before conformance testing.

The expanded FDD and TDD LTE test coverage on the GS-8800, with more test cases and bands, provides users seamless upgrades on their current installed 2G/3G systems to LTE.
