Agilent Technologies Canada Inc. has upgraded its 8960 wireless communications test set by adding GSM, GPRS and EGPRS format capabilities.

The addition of new RF source hardware for the three technologies creates a one-box network emulator for wireless chipset, application and device designers. Features include RF measurement capability, real-time phone-to-Internet connectivity and live user data transfers for verifying real-life applications.

According to the company, these new lab applications streamline test development by allowing designers to easily switch between data and voice connections, send short message service (SMS) messages, while on a voice call, and suspend and resume packet-switched data transfers that are interrupted by a call.

Each lab application also includes Wireless Protocol Advisory (WPA) software for real-time and post-capture analysis.
