Keysight Technologies announced a collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies to enable the realization of 5G technologies. Its design and test tools will be used to chipset development for next-generation cellular devices.
Keysight’s new 5G network emulation solutions portfolio, supported by Keysight’s new UXM 5G wireless test platform, enables Qualcomm Technologies to validate the chipset technology and the higher-layer protocols needed for 5G.
Keysight’s scalable solutions support sub-6 GHz and mm-Wave, which will provide Qualcomm Technologies insights into the performance of their ICs and overcome potential challenges that may surface in 5G trials.
As 3GPP accelerates the 5G NR non-standalone specification, Keysight will collaborate with Qualcomm Technologies and help them with their 5G program’s protocol and RF workflows. Its software and hardware platforms provide scalability and capability needed to support 5G design and test from initial requirements to final standards.
For Jon Detra, vice president, engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, “Keysight’s solutions will help accelerate our commercialization strategy.”
