    The purpose of this configuration guide is to assist you in ordering the correct system configuration for your application. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the Agilent CDMA Over-Air Maintenance ToolData Sheet (Agilent literature number 5968-8687E), which describes the features and functionality in detail. The Agilent CDMA Over-Air MaintenanceTool for IS-2000 is available as a receiver based system.

    This document is divided into six parts:

    Part 1. Basic description of product configuration

    Part 2. Software options

    Part 3. Receiver hardware options

    Part 4. Accessories

    Part 5. Upgrading existing systems

    Part 6. Ordering examples

    Part 6 provides the information required for upgrading existing systems. For example, if you currently own an Agilent E6474A wireless network optimization platform with only phone-based measurement capability, andyou want to upgrade it to have combined phone and receiver-based measurement capability, then the information in Part 6 will assist you inordering the necessary options.

    Part 1. Basic description of product configuration

    The E6474A system is made up of software, receiver hardware, and accessories. To order a system, you:

    1. Choose the software functionality that you want (option numbers in the 150s).

    2. Choose the receiver hardware that you want (from E645XC family).

    3. Choose the accessories that you want (Agilent 86154A and E6473Adrive test system accessories).

    Each system requires an Agilent digital receiver. The system also requires aPC with Windows 95, 98, Windows ME, NT, or 2000 running the measure-ment software. A GPS receiver and GPS antenna are required to log the posi-tion information and provide timing for the receiver CDMA measurements.IMPORTANT: At least one software option and receiver must be ordered forthe product configuration to be valid.

    Windows 95, 98, and NT are U.S. registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation.

    Part 3. Receiver hardware options

    This part of the document assumes that you are building a new system. If you are adding functionality to an existing system, refer to Part 5,Upgrading existing systems.

    The following digital receiver hardware options are available for the CDMA Over-Air Maintenance Tool:

    E6452C: Cellular band digital receiver with internal GPS receiver E6450C: PCS band CDMA/TDMA digital receiver with internal

    GPS receiver E6457C: Japan cellular band receiver with internal GPS receiver E6453C: Korea PCS band receiver with internal GPS receiver E6454C: PCS band CDMA/GSM receiver E6456C: PCS band cdma2000/UMTS receiver

    Software Option 150 is required to operate Agilent receivers. One softwarepackage can control up to four receivers.

    Internal GPS provides portability and simplifies system configuration. If yourequire dead reckoning with your GPS, use an external GPS receiver.

    Agilent RF E645XC receivers come with internal GPS or an external GPS canbe added. Agilent offers an external GPS with dead reckoning capability. Refer to Part 4, Accessories.

    For receiver specifications and a detailed description of the receiver functionality, please refer to the Agilent CDMA Over-Air Maintenance ToolData Sheet (Agilent literature number 5968-8687E).

    Select the receiver that covers the frequency band in which you want tomake measurements. If you need to make measurements in more than oneband, order multiple measurement receivers.

    Each receiver includes the following components:

    magnetic-mount RF antenna for the corresponding frequency band TNC-to-type N adapter for RF antenna RS-232 cable for connection to PC1

    cable for connecting in multiple receiver configuration AC/DC power supply1

    DC power cord (cigarette lighter type)1

    mounting kit (brackets and screws for mounting receiver in a vehicle) magnetic-mount GPS antenna with cable

    1 Alternatively, Agilent provides optional system accessories that can be used to power and connect simultaneously up totwo phones and up to two receivers to the PC. The E6473A option 010 (vehicle-mounted USB hub kit) is provided for drivetesting (in-vehicle) environments. Refer to Part 4: Accessories

    Part 5. Upgrading existing systems

    The Agilent E6474A is a scalable system. You can start with one set of capabilities and integrate additional capabilities later. For example:

    Start with a receiver-based system and upgrade later to include phone-based measurements.

    The system is made up of software, receiver hardware, and accessories.Upgrading a system is similar to building a new system. You simply order those system elements that you dont currently have. To upgrade a system:

    1. Decide what system capability you want.

    2. Identify the capability you currently have.

    3. Choose the software options that you need to add (option numbers in the 150s).

    4. Choose the hardware options that you need to add (E645XC receivers).

    5. Choose the accessories that you need to add (Agilent 86154A and E6473A drive test system accessories).

    Figure 2 illustrates the process of choosing the specific options to orderwhen you are upgrading an Agilent E6474A system.

    The CDMA Over-Air Maintenance Tool system is completely scalable with theAgilent E6474A CDMA drive test system. For more information on relatedproducts, please refer to the literature listed at the end of this document.

    Upgrading existing cdmaOne systems

    If you own an older E7490A or E7473A cdmaOne system and would like toupgrade receiver hardware and/or system software to cdma2000 1x capabili-ty, choose from the following options:

    86157A - Upgrades E6450B or E6452A receiver to higher per-formance C version. Upgrades E7473A Option 111or E7490A Option 111 code domain power softwarefor cdma2000 1x measurements.

    E6474A Option 151 - Upgrades E7473A Option 111 or E7490A Option 111code domain power software for cdma2000 1x mea-surements (software requires C version receiver forthese measurements).

    86150C - Upgrades E6450B or E6452A receiver to higher per-formance C version.
