LTE-Advanced Test & Design
4G LTE Advanced refers to the evolved version of LTE that is being developed by 3GPP to meet or exceed the requirements of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for a true fourth generation radio-communication standard known as IMT-Advanced. 4G LTE, whose project name is LTE-Advanced, is being specified initially in Release 10 of the 3GPP standard which came out in December 2010. The 4G LTE standard will continue to be developed in subsequent releases.
Agilent not only addresses basics and test challenges, but also outlines the technology, describes deployment and standard milestones and offers resources for those requiring more in-depth LTE technology information. We offer greater insight into LTE designs by providing greater insight into complex LTE technology, evolving LTE standards and how to test to them, and deeper insight into the root causes of design problems. Agilent continues to play a pivotal role in the development, revision and implementation of 3GPP and the new 4G LTE technology, as well as, continues to be the recognized leader for its contribution to the future of wireless access.
