75 ohm Calibration thru 4+ GHz

We have an Agilent N5230A (thru 50 ghz, 50 ohm 2.4mm) and have 3 options for calibrating to 75 ohm interfaces (Type F (Agilent), Type N (Agilent), BNC (Maury 8580A).  These are all rated thru 2 GHz.  We also utilize Agilent Type N 75 min loss pads (rated to 2 GHz).

My question is with the TV industry pushing beyond 3 GHz for HD signals (Certain customers wanting VSWR, IL results to 6 GHz) are the above Cal kits sufficient?  Does our company need to get a dedicated 75 ohm VNA to meet these new requirements?

Thanks for the feedback,
