Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

The GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution measurement application is one in a common library of measurement applications for the Keysight modular PXI VSA, providing standards-based transmitter tests by adding fast one-button RF conformance measurements to help you design, evaluate, and manufacture your GSM/EDGE/EDGE Evolution base station and mobile station devices. The measurement application closely follows the 3GPP GERAN standard allowing you to stay on the leading edge of your design and manufacturing challenges.
