Keysight Technologies has strengthened its commitment to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) founded by Facebook and others. Keysight will co-chair a newly-formed subgroup focused on test automation within TIP’s OpenCellular project group. As part of this sub-group, Keysight will contribute the open source code that enables automated testing for design verification and a low-cost manufacturing solution for OpenCellular base stations.
Future wireless network expectations are ubiquitous, high performance and global. However today, less than half the world’s population has access to the internet. This is mainly due to geography and/or economic factors that make it prohibitive to cover with traditional cellular networks. Even in the regions which do have access, the need for high data-intensive services like video and virtual reality requires a revamp of existing infrastructures to support them.
“Keysight is pleased to announce an expanded commitment to the Telecom Infra Project,” said Dr. Mark Pierpont, vice president and general manager, Keysight Internet Infrastructure Solutions. “Our solution will help simplify the test process and drive adoption of OpenCellular worldwide.”
“Keysight’s contributions to TIP will help service providers and manufacturers simplify the implementation and manufacturing of their designs,” said Ashish Kelkar, Board Member, TIP, and Director, Infrastructure Strategy, Facebook. “They’re enabling our community to quickly and efficiently create low-cost networks of the future.”
Keysight is showing the TIP test cases, in addition to its latest software-centric design and test solutions for LTE-A, 5G, IoT and Connected Car technologies, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
