Keysight Technologies has announced verification of three component carrier (3CC) end-to-end IP data throughput with the recently introduced E7515A UXM wireless test set. Utilising three 20 MHz component carriers in the downlink for a total aggregated bandwidth of 60 MHz, Keysight successfully demonstrated 450 Mbps DL/50 Mbps UL (category 9) data rates.
The UXM is a highly integrated signaling test set created for functional and RF design validation in the 4G era and beyond. Recently introduced by Keysight and now shipping in volume, the UXM supports multiple cells, downlink and uplink carrier aggregation, MIMO up to 4x2, and integrated fading – allowing users to assess design readiness with greater confidence.
“Keysight is committed to delivering cutting-edge test capability to meet the demands of today’s evolving wireless industry,” said Joe DePond, general manager of Keysight’s Mobile Broadband Operation. “Providing full-rate three component carrier IP data throughput is a significant achievement that further illustrates the power of the UXM’s flexible architecture.”
