The E6702A/B/C/D/E/F/T Lab Application enables the test set to capture the exchange of control and data information between the test set and a mobile station. Captured information is forwarded to a software application that runs on a personal computer under the Windows operating system.
The software application is referred to as the WPA (Wireless Protocol Advisor). It is tailored for the capture, display, and analysis of message exchange protocols between the test set, emulating a base station, and a mobile station.
Most of the information necessary to establish a connection and to display, filter, store, print, and analyze the message exchange between the test set and a mobile station is accessible through the Help feature available on-line when the WPA application is running.
This on-line help is also available for download at:
Additional information, including PC operating system requirements and additional protocol logging reference information specific to the test set's Lab Application is listed below.
PC Operating System Requirements
Logging protocol messages requires an external PC with the following system requirements:
Starting and Stopping Protocol Logging
There are several ways to control the logging of signaling messages.
The primary method for starting and stopping is through features found in the WPA software.
The following information describes features available through the test set's remote and manual user interface for performing these functions:
