TEKTRONIX UNVEILS G35 LOW-COST PROTOCOL ANALYZER UNIT.
Customers seeking to develop femtocell technologies can use the G35 protocol analyzer to provide simulation and emulation of key elements of their femtocell designs including UMTS core network interfaces over IP such as Iu-CS and Iu-PS, allowing a significant reduction of both cost and footprint of their labs' infrastructure as network elements can be effectively replaced by the test unit.
Femtocells, also known as personal base stations, have the potential to transform communications by making mobile devices the tools of choice, even in home settings. Tektronix' G35 protocol analyzer provides a comprehensive platform for functional testing of a wide range of interfaces for femtocell and all the latest mobile technologies.
In the past 18 months, femtocell technology has developed into a 'real world' technology that will work with any existing GSM or UMTS device and provide seamless handovers for voice and data services from public mobile to femto networks inside buildings. Femto uses existing technology but in a highly integrated, smaller form eliminating the need to change phones, networks or services and services that have fixed-line prices which present a real challenge to the fixed line service providers.
Tektronix' G35 provides protocol simulation, emulation and monitoring in a single, cost-effective unit that has already enabled the successful evolution from 2G to 3G and now to next generation wireless standards such as LTE and Mobile WiMAX all around the world. The solution will meet network mobile equipment manufacturers and service providers' needs for powerful simulation capabilities for their development test environment, including simulation of voice and video over IP in a single, cost-effective solution.
"As a first-to-market provider of mobile test, Tektronix has been providing functional and load test solutions for 3G, mobile WiMAX and HSDPA technologies that address critical issues for our customers," said Richard Kenedi, General Manager, Functional & Load Diagnostics, Tektronix Communications. "We have applied in-depth knowledge and expertise to our femtocell test solutions. During the past months, we have helped customers create efficient femtocell test procedures, allowing them to validate functionality and performance of femtocells for seamless interaction with the public 3G network, a prerequisite for the success of this exciting new technology."
