The demonstration will feature 1) cutting-edge LTE-Advanced functionality, 2) 3G test capabilities that allow wireless engineers to assess, characterise and stress user equipment (UE) designs, and 3) full end-to-end IP data throughput of 450 Mbps using three component carriers in realistic channel conditions.
The UXM wireless test set is the most integrated signaling test set available in the industry, incorporating a modern touch-screen user interface, flexible network emulation, MIMO, built-in fading and a dedicated applications server. The test set is an ideal choice for many challenging UE test applications in R&D, regression test and verification.
“The latest extensions to the UXM demonstrate the power and versatility of the platform and Keysight’s ongoing commitment to providing comprehensive UE test solutions for the rapidly evolving wireless ecosystem,” said Joe DePond, general manager of Keysight’s Mobile Broadband Operation. “The UXM’s extensible architecture is ready to handle the technological challenges of the industry’s latest LTE-Advanced evolutions, such as 4CC, 256 QAM and UE categories 11 to 14.”
UXM helps carriers and UE developers maximise the use of wireless spectrum with support for carrier aggregation in the downlink and uplink. The UXM also provides leading-edge FeICIC functionality for verifying HetNet and cell-edge performance enhancements.
The wireless test set’s improved user interface helps engineers:
o quickly establish standard test configurations, such as those defined by the 3GPP
o access advanced network emulation and measurement capability in order to thoroughly exercise the advanced UE features and troubleshoot issues
