Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced its Signaling Analyzer Real Time (SART) for Femto, a wireless analysis and troubleshooting tool for femtocells, which access wireless networks via consumer broadband connections.

The platform supports both standards-based and proprietary femtocell implementations.

 

“Femtocell technology is sure to become quite popular in the near future because it will significantly improve both outdoor and indoor wireless communication,” said Steve Urvik, protocol analysis and diagnostics marketing manager for Agilent’s network solutions division.

 

“However, since the technology is still emerging, network equipment manufacturers and service providers face formidable development challenges and need a comprehensive test tool to incorporate femtocells into existing UMTS networks.”
