Agilent in LTE- Webcast Series
10-Steps to Determine 3G/4G IP Data Throughput
September 27, 2012; 10am PT / 1pm ET/ 5pm UTC
What is the Webcast About?
The latest smart phones and cellular devices require increasingly higher data throughput to deliver expected application experience and basic voice performance. This is especially true as the industry moves to an all IP network in the case of LTE. End-to-end IP data throughput testing is therefore a key performance test. This webcast describes the ten sequential steps to determine if devices deliver the required performance. It includes a discussion of the role of a base station emulator and an application PC server for executing tests in a bench top environment.
