Unleash the new power of the 8960!
The new Keysight E5515E hardware platform for the 8960 wireless communications test set is specifically designed to meet the challenging demands of wireless device hardware, software and application development. Leveraged from the world-class E5515C hardware platform, the E5515E has new and improved high data rate hardware, multiple signaling and RF paths and increased headroom to support today’s cutting edge 3.5G technologies, such as 42 Mbps DC-HSDPA, DB-DC-HSDPA and HSDPA-MIMO. In addition, when coupled with the Keysight E6621A PXT wireless communications test set, it provides powerful 2G/3G/3.5G-LTE handover test capability, seamlessly supporting the 4G evolution. Unlike the E5515C, the E5515E has no hardware options – everything is included, making it easy to order and easy to use.
The E5515C will continue to provide industry-standard high-speed, accurate and reliable RF measurements and flexible network emulation focused on the needs of manufacturing and RF design, verification and integration. For more information on the E5515C, see the Related Products on the Options & Accessories tab.
Do you have an E5515C but need the new functionality of the E5515E? The new E5515CU-80E hardware upgrade set is an easy, affordable upgrade path to the E5515E. One part number, one low price brings your E5515C to the equivalent functionality of an E5515E! See the Related Products on the Options & Accessories tab for more information.
