- Keysight Technologies and Synergy Design Technologies are expanding their collaboration to advance the development of 5G open radio access network (O-RAN) and virtualized radio access network (vRAN) infrastructures.
- Synergy will use Keysight’s user equipment (UE) emulation solutions to validate radio access network (RAN) performance.
With the increasing complexity of mobile network ecosystems and the evolution of radio access network (RAN) technologies, infrastructure providers need network performance testing solutions to ensure the functionality of all interfaces.
User equipment (UE) emulation solutions replicate real network traffic to validate end-to-end radio access network performance and improve product design.
Synergy will use Keysight’s P8800S UE Emulation RAN (UeSIM) and P8822S UE/O-RU Emulation Over the O-RAN Fronthaul (RuSIM) solutions to create a network test environment during development and debugging of its 5G Smart RAN software solution.
These two user equipment (UE) emulation platforms will enable it to validate its all-in-one small cells as well as its O-RAN radio units (O-RU), distributed units (O-DU) and centralized units (O-CU) to continuously optimize its software and improve design.
Keysight’s UeSIM user equipment (UE) emulation solutions enable infrastructure and chipset providers and mobile operators to validate end-to-end radio access network (RAN) performance by emulating real network traffic on the radio and O-RAN fronthaul interfaces.
The RuSIM solution enables functional, conformance, and performance testing of O-DUs over fronthaul functional split option 7.2x.
