Secure User Plane for Location (SUPL) is a technology which utilizes existing infrastructure and standards to transfer Location Services (LCS) data over a user plane bearer, such as Internet Protocol (IP). A centralized SUPL Location Platform (SLP) connects to the system, enabling cellular networks and mobile devices to offer Assisted GPS (A-GPS) capability. Detailed specifications exist today which enable the use of SUPL in GSM, UMTS, CDMA, LTE, UMB, and WiMAX™ networks.
The Agilent E6965A Location Server Emulator is the first commercial bench-top solution supporting SUPL functional test using over-the-air connection to a SUPL enabled terminal (SET). It provides the elements of the SLP that are needed to test such devices, and may be combined with other Agilent test equipment to form a system that provides satellite simulation, cellular base-station emulation and the messaging required for SUPL testing.

The location server emulator is designed for use with the Agilent E5515C 8960 series 10 Wireless Communications Test Set
If required, the Agilent ESG-C with E4438C-409 Global PositioningSystem personality can be used to provide GPS signal simulation
