Sprint has selected Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions to validate the performance of 5G new radio (NR) mobile devices, accelerating U.S. 5G commercial deployment of fixed wireless access (FWA) and enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) applications.

This collaboration leverages Keysight's 5G Protocol and RF Carrier Acceptance Toolsets – part of the company's suite of 5G network emulation solutions – to optimise the end-users' experience while accessing 5G services on the mobile operator's network.

In addition, the collaboration has resulted in a carrier-specific test plan covering both protocol and radio frequency (RF) tests in frequency range 1 (FR1).

The test plan supports a wide range of use cases and mobility scenarios, including voice calls, access to data intensive applications and battery life to ensure new 5G NR devices deliver a superior subscriber experience.

Keysight's 5G Carrier Acceptance Toolsets support a leading number of carrier acceptance 5G NR RF and protocol test cases as mandated by Sprint and other major U.S. mobile operators.

Sprint also uses Keysight’s Nemo RAN analytics software solutions to automate the acceptance of new 5G sites, leading to faster network implementation and improved quality of service.
