SANTA CLARA, Calif.
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that AT4 wireless authorized test lab will use Agilent's T3111S NFC Conformance Test System to test NFC Forum LLCP and SNEP protocols.
"We are delighted that AT4 wireless will use the Agilent T3111S to extend its range of testing services to include LLCP and SNEP," said Joe DePond, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Mobile Broadband Operation. "This demonstrates our strength in NFC testing across the entire RD lifecycle."
Agilent's T3111S NFC Conformance Test System is the only test tool approved for all NFC Forum required tests, including digital protocol, analog, LLCP and SNEP. The test system also supports EMVTM Level 1 PICC/Mobile; and ISO 14443, 18092, 15693 and 18000-3.
"LLCP and SNEP are exciting emerging NFC technologies," said Fernando E. Hardasmal, deputy general director, AT4 wireless. "AT4 wireless has been working hard with our partners to provide the NFC industry with the test facilities and test systems they need, including the latest requirements. We are thrilled to be ready to offer this addition to our extensive NFC testing services at our labs in Europe, the U.S. and Asia Pacific."
AT4 wireless is an authorized test laboratory for the NFC Forum in Spain (Malaga), the U.S. (Herndon, Virginia) and Taiwan (Taipei). AT4 wireless testing services are based on Agilent's T3111S NFC Conformance Test System and will ensure interoperability between devices leading to a more positive experience for smartphone users.
LLCP and SNEP enable peer-to-peer communication between smartphones and other mobile devices using near field communication (NFC). These technologies allow users to intuitively share URLs and contact details, and trigger other mobile protocols, for exchanging photos and other large files. Logical link control protocol (LLCP) defines an OSI layer-2 protocol to support peer-to-peer communication between two NFC-enabled devices. NFC simple NDEF exchange protocol (SNEP) allows application messages in NFC data exchange format (NDEF) to be exchanged between devices.
