Keysight launches 5G NR-ready solutions across the workflow at MWC 2018

At MWC, Keysight will demonstrate 5G 4Gbps data throughput at 28GHz with the company’s 5G network emulator integrated with mmWave OTA solutions for radio frequency, functional and performance test. In addition, Keysight announced and will demonstrate unique 5G NR ready end-to-end device workflow solutions which streamline the product workflow from early prototyping and development to design validation and manufacturing. These solutions leverage common development tools to eliminate siloed data sets and share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle. As a result, chipset and device manufacturers can accelerate delivery of new 5G NR products to market.

Keysight also enables the device ecosystem to cost-effectively perform 5G mmWave device validation and ramp early production with the company’s 5G non-signaling mmW transceiver solution, which covers 28GHz and 39GHz frequency bands. Demonstrated at MWC, it enables manufacturers to move from R&D to design verification test (DVT) and manufacturing when ramping up 5G chipsets and devices. It also offers flexible and easy set up for 5G mmW test scenarios with multiple devices under test using to the latest 5G NR standard.

In addition, Keysight will demonstrate 5G NR software solutions covering the full product design cycle with simulation, signal creation and analysis, with uplink and downlink directions, enabling both transmitter and receiver simulation and test. Keysight’s software solutions are compliant with the 3GPP Release 15 TS 38 5G specification and are integrated with Keysight’s broad range of signal generators and signal analyzers, including 5G NR software solutions.

Early availability of Keysight’s 5G NR-ready software solutions enable chipset and device manufacturers to simulate, prototype and validate physical layer implementations of 5G NR-ready chipsets and devices with greater insight and confidence, accelerating market readiness. Keysight solutions include W1906EP SystemVue 5G baseband verification library to simulate 5G NR signals, N7631C Signal Studio Pro for 5G NR for waveform creation, as well as 89600 VSA option BHN for 5G NR modulation analysis and N9085E 5G NR X-Series measurement applications software for 5G NR signal analysis for design and test.

Keysight will also demonstrate the industry’s first integrated cellular + Wi-Fi protocol verification solution which enables network operators to simultaneously test cellular and Wi-Fi cellular signaling, from data traffic generation to physical transmission, from layers 1 to 7.
