First-to-market 5G network emulation solutions are now 5G NR ready
- Keysight’s first-to-market 5G New Radio (NR) network emulation solutions allow users to prototype and develop 5G NR chipsets and devices
- Keysight’s solutions allow users to verify advanced 5G NR features (e.g., beamforming) across global spectrum requirements
- Keysight’s solutions allow users to validate new 5G NR waveforms and complex 5G numerology with test automation tools
SANTA ROSA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 19, 2017 — Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that its 5G network emulation solutions are now ready for 5G NR and will continue to support the new 3GPP NR standards. The first-to-market 5G NR test capabilities were publicly demonstrated at the company’s 5G Tech Connect event in San Francisco on December 14. The event brought together key industry players to advance 5G insights. Earlier this year, Keysight was the first to launch network emulation solutions ( 5G Protocol R&D Toolset and 5G RF DVT Toolset) that enable device and chipset manufacturers to prototype and develop 5GTF chipsets and devices.
Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions enable the device ecosystem to simplify workflows, share insights, and speed time to market. The workflow based solution portfolio uses a common and scalable software platform across a unified 5G development toolset that streamlines 5G modem and device R&D workflow.
Keysight is first to offer its users the ability to address 5G NR challenges and will support advanced channel bandwidth, beamforming, 8CC aggregation and multi-gigabit end-to-end IP data rates.
“We are pleased with our progress in the pre-standards phase of 5G and have built on that to offer solutions for New Radio,” said Kailash Narayanan, vice president and general manager, Wireless Device and Operators. “The early solution availability illustrates the benefits of our early collaborations with the market makers. Our end-to-end solutions, with support for sub-6GHz and mmWave testing, will help the development and deployment of 5G modems and devices to meet the challenge of varying global spectrum and interoperability requirements.”
