Mobile ecosystem test solutions on parade at MWC 2021
Keysight Technologies says it will showcase test solutions that enable the mobile ecosystem to innovate next for 5G and beyond at Mobile World Congress 2021 (June 28-July 1).
Keysight will offer attendees the opportunity to virtually connect with the mobile ecosystem and discover innovative solutions that address the following challenges:
Emulate Any Part of 5G O-RAN
Open radio access network (O-RAN) interfaces and standards enable the integration of products from different network vendors helping mobile network operators realise multivendor deployments that support the delivery of advanced 5G services for enterprises in manufacturing, finance, transportation, logistics and healthcare.
Integrating components from multiple sources requires testing each element in isolation for conformance and in combination for interoperability.
Attendees will hear directly from industry leaders and learn how they collaborate with Keysight to transform the radio access network.
Maximise 5G Performance
NR continues to evolve. The second release of the standard, 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 16 introduces new capabilities and operational enhancements that will expand 5G's reach into new verticals including enterprises, industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications, and private 5G deployments.
The following demonstrations showcase the latest additions to Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions portfolio that help leading chipset and device makers optimise 5G performance:
- 5G NR Release 16 device validation Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions, based on the UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform, enables designers of modems and devices to validate the latest 3GPP 5G NR Release 16 features.
- Over-the-air 5G RF and protocol monitoring Sanjole WaveJudge provides visibility into the interaction between the protocol and physical layers in wireless transmissions. Sanjole is now part of Keysight Technologies.
Why Interoperability and Performance Testing is Critical to Open RAN at Scale
The momentum behind Open RAN is tremendous with support from the major mobile operators. Successful deployment of a disaggregated RAN architecture relies on end-to-end performance visibility, from the edge of the RAN to the 5G core (5GC).
Keysight enables hardware and software vendors to emulate any part of the 5G O-RAN, maximising 5G performance while ensuring interoperability and conformance.
