5G Protocol R&D toolset supports next-gen cellular device development
To support chipset and device manufacturers developing the next generation of cellular devices, Keysight Technologies has introduced the 5G Protocol R&D toolset. Believed to be the first 5G protocol R&D toolset, it is for prototyping next-generation mobile devices. Keysight is currently working with mobile operators on early trials and 5G deployments.
Keysight’s 5G Protocol R&D toolset is the first in a series of network emulation solutions for 5G. It covers the diverse global spectrum requirements specified in the pre-5G and 3GPP 5G NR standards. The 5G toolset allows efficient testing of advanced 5G features, including beamforming at mmWave frequencies, as well as protocol testing with full access to layer 1 and layer 2 parameters.
A built-in protocol state machine enables developers to create and execute test cases, debug errors, and analyse results, to streamline the 5G device workflow.
The development of 5G depends on up-to-date tools that let designers explore new signals, scenarios and topologies. In design and test, Keysight is helping industry leaders innovate across new and existing technologies as they transform ideas into reality.
Keysight Technologies helps its engineering, enterprise and service provider customers optimise networks and bring electronic products to market faster. Keysight’s products go where the electronic signal goes, from design simulation, to prototype validation, to manufacturing test, to optimisation in networks and cloud environments. Customers span the worldwide communications ecosystem, aerospace and defence, automotive, energy, semiconductor and general electronics end markets. In April 2017, Keysight acquired Ixia, a leader in network test, visibility, and security.
