TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Announces NFC Conformance Test System Approved for LLCP and SNEP Testing

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that its T3111S NFC Conformance Test System has been validated for testing of NFC Forum Logical Link Protocol (LLCP) and Simple NDEF Exchange (SNEP) Protocol. The T3111S is the only test platform combining validated NFC Forum analog RF, digital protocol, LLCP and SNEP testing in one integrated system.

LLCP and SNEP enable peer-to-peer communication between smartphones and other mobile devices using Near Field Communication (NFC). They enable users to intuitively pass URLs and contact details, and they trigger other mobile protocols to exchange photos and other large files. LLCP defines an OSI layer-2 protocol to support peer-to-peer communication between two NFC-enabled devices. SNEP allows application messages in NFC Data Exchange Format (NDEF) to be exchanged between devices.

The Agilent T3111S was used to certify the first NFC Forum devices in 2012. Used in test laboratories worldwide, the Agilent NFC Conformance Test System has enabled an ever-growing number of devices from many vendors to be successfully certified. From digital protocol to analog RF, and now with LLCP and SNEP, the T3111S system capabilities have expanded with each enhancement to NFC Forum certification.

In addition, the Agilent T3111S Test System delivers a comprehensive array of other significant automated test suites, including EMVTM Level 1 analog RF; EMV Level 1 digital protocol; and ISO 14443, 18092, 15693 and 18000-3 testing methods.

“With this new approval from the NFC Forum, we are delighted that the T3111S has become the first integrated test system with validation in each area of NFC Forum conformance testing,” said Joe DePond, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Mobile Broadband Operation. “We are committed to supporting NFC testing across the entire R&D lifecycle.”

“Agilent has demonstrated its commitment to NFC, both as a valued partner to the NFC Forum Certification Program and as a Forum member,” said Paula Hunter, executive director of the NFC Forum. “By making it possible for manufacturers to more thoroughly test their NFC devices, the T3111S NFC Conformance Test System will help to broaden the reach and impact of our certification program.”

The NFC Forum Certification Program gives device manufacturers a means of establishing their products’ compliance with the NFC Forum’s technical specifications. The program offers increased assurance that NFC Forum-certified products are interoperable with other NFC Forum-certified products. It also supports consistency in the behavior of NFC devices by confirming that products conform to NFC Forum specifications. Agilent has consistently supported the NFC Forum’s program.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
