Tektronix Offers Knowledgeware with Network Diagnostics Academy

12/5/2003 - Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE: TEK), a leading provider of test, measurement and monitoring tools, announced the launch of its new Network Diagnostics Academy. The Academy will include a series of knowledgeware products and services including expert books, in-person seminars and online Webinars covering a variety of standards and topics. The release of "UMTS UTRAN Signaling" is the first knowledgeware product available from the Academy.

Third-generation (3G) networks utilize more interfaces and protocols than ever before, and the amount of data to analyze is significantly higher than that of second-generation (2G) networks. Technicians no longer have the time or the resources to keep up with every trouble mode that occurs in their mobile network. With a series of ongoing, highly specialized knowledgeware products in the Network Diagnostics Academy, Tektronix is helping to expand technicians' expertise on next-generation mobile networks.

"Network operators and mobile equipment manufacturers need more tools than what's available today to effectively troubleshoot mobile communications networks," said Bob Agnes, Vice President, Monitoring & Protocol Test, Tektronix. "By launching the Network Diagnostics Academy and providing resources such as 'UMTS UTRAN Signaling,' Tektronix is helping to equip operators and manufacturers with a new level of expertise and analysis capability to successfully build and manage their next-generation networks."

About the Book
"UMTS UTRAN Signaling" provides insight into UMTS signaling on the wireline interface. It is comprised of two sections. The first section is an overview of UMTS, including detail on the technical standards, network architecture, objectives and functions of different interfaces and various protocols of the UTRAN. The second segment goes a level deeper to discuss UMTS signaling. Different procedures, from Node setup to handover types, are described and explained comprehensively. With this book, the reader has access to the first universal UMTS protocol sequence reference, which allows the engineer to quickly differentiate valid from invalid call control procedures. In addition, all main signaling stages are explained, many of which had previously been unclear. These stages can now be analyzed based on protocol traces from actual implementations.
