Fiberhome Develops UMTS with Tektronix's Protocol Tester

8/6/2003 - Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE: TEK), a leading provider of test, measurement and monitoring solutions for mobile network operators and equipment manufacturers, announced that Beijing Northern Fiberhome Technologies Co., Ltd, a new provider of mobile communication equipment in China, has chosen Tektronix' solution for developing Universal Mobile Telecommunication Systems (UMTS) Release 4 (R4) networks and elements.

UMTS is a third-generation (3G) technology that enables operators to increase both the number of users and the data throughput in mobile communications networks. UMTS Release 4 (R4) is the next step in the migration towards full implementation of 3G UMTS networks. In order to meet the requirements of the advanced R4 network protocols, mobile equipment manufacturers must test the compliance of their existing products against the newest specifications. Tektronix' K1297-G20 protocol tester meets these requirements and allows manufacturers, who have invested significant resources in UMTS research and development (R&D), to quickly implement the latest standards release.

"With Tektronix' leadership position and expertise in protocol analysis, we know our efforts with UMTS R4 will be a success," said Tian LiRen, Vice President, Fiberhome. "We also recognize the focus Tektronix has given the Chinese mobile communications market and appreciate that commitment."

"In the fast moving Chinese mobile communications market, the ability to get to market quickly with the latest equipment is key to success and profitability," said Bob Agnes, Vice President, Monitoring and Protocol Test, Tektronix. "By selecting Tektronix' K1297-G20 protocol tester for its UMTS R4 support, Fiberhome can confidently go to market with the newest UMTS equipment."
