Agilent Technologies has developed a manufacturing test system that supports both fixed (802.16-2004) and mobile (802.16e-2005) last-mile broadband wireless access systems using point-to-point or point-to-multi-point architecture. The Agilent MXZ-1000 is suitable for WiMAX CPE and PC card manufacturers providing them a calibration and tuning product optimised for high-volume environments.

This WiMAX manufacturing test system offers Beceem's BCS120 chipset library. As a result, the MXZ-1000 is optimised to directly control Beceem's BCS120 base band and RF chipset and the WiMAX modem software, enabling the highest possible measurement throughput.

Beceem is a supplier of chipsets for the recently ratified IEEE 802.16e-2005 standard on which mobile WiMAX is based. Beceem will certify Agilent's test systems for use by manufacturers that are developing mobile WiMAX products based on the BCS120 chipset.
