Keysight enhances 5G network emulation solution platform

Electronics company Keysight Technologies has announced several improvements to its 5G network emulation solution, supporting the latest 3GPP features

Keysight Technologies, an American electronics company, has announced it has launched a range of improvements to its 5G network emulation solution which supports the latest 3GPP features. The improvements aim to allow 5G chipset makers to develop the performance of advanced 5G chipsets.

The new chipsets, expected to be released this year, have started testing and have verified Keysight Technologies enhanced 5G emulation solution, which is based on the company’s UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform. 

 "We're pleased to enable a global 5G ecosystem to capture early market revenue opportunities by delivering industry-first enhancements to Keysight's Network Emulation portfolio, providing double the capabilities of the original solution launched in 2017," said Cao Peng, Vice President and General Manager of Keysight's wireless test group.

"We're witnessing the first commercial deployments of 3GPP Rel-16 this spring and expect to see early implementations of Rel-17 towards the end of 2022. Keysight's 5G test solutions provide a future-proof test platform for chipset makers, device manufacturers, mobile network operators, test labs, system integrators and operational technology (OT) vendors to rapidly develop and verify 5G devices and networks,” Peng added. 

Leveraging UXM 5G Wireless 

Keysight's 5G network emulation solution leverages the company's UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform, an integrated and compact signalling test platform with multiformat stack support and abundant radio frequency (RF) resources, to emulate a 5G new radio (NR) network.

The UXM 5G platform supports RF characterisation, protocol compliance, and functional key performance analytics across both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum.

Solution updates are available in a range of new platform configurations and price points to support RF protocol, functional and performance use cases across the device workflow.
