The latest communications design and test solutions, along with leading edge 5G wireless simulation and test solutions will be shown by Keysight Technologies at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Feb22-25). The Keysight demonstrations will focus on high-performance design and test solution requirements of the multiple usage scenarios of 5G mobile communications.
This includes enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine-type communications and ultra-reliable and low latency communications.
The demonstrations will cover multiple aspects of the enabling technologies, such as new waveforms, wideband micro-wave and millimeter-wave communications, and multiple-antenna techniques such as Massive MIMO.
The company will exhibit the following breakthrough 5G and 802.11ad solutions at the show.
• Multi-channel mmWave OTA testing with S-Series Oscilloscope and M1971E waveguide mixers - quasi-optics radio propagation at 73 GHz solution using advantages of remote heads with standard baseband equipment mmWave channel behavior in presence of blockage, scatters, different polarization of the horn antennas, etc.
• Real-time beamforming measurement with an M9703A digitiser, M8195A AWG, SystemVue W 1462 FPGA architect and W1906 5G library – the solution offers 8 channels of wide band stimulus and measurement in a single 5 slot AXIe chassis solution. Modulation analysis and beam weighting algorithms developed in SystemVue and deployed into the M9703A FPGA using the integrated design flow in the SystemVue FPGA Architect.
• Latest mmWave design validation and manufacturing solutions for 802.11ad characterisation.
Keysight will also be showing the UXM Wireless Test Set – 1 Gbps end to end IP data testing with higher order MIMO and Carrier Aggregation; executing the leading edge of high-speed downloads with LTE-A Pro using three component carriers including 4x4 MIMO and 2x2 MIMO. The test set also features 1.6 Gbps data rates via four component carriers with 4x4 downlink MIMO, as well as support for five component carriers in two UXMs.
The UXA Signal Analyser will be on show in Barcelona. It offers end-to-end wideband 5G and millimetre wave generation and analysis solution, including industry-leading performance enhancements with integrated analysis bandwidth of 1 GHz at millimetre-wave frequencies.
“In design and test, our 5G simulation and measurement solutions help industry leaders innovate across new and existing technologies as we all transform ideas into 5G reality,” said Guy Séné, senior vice president, worldwide sales, Keysight. “Being first and best in 5G depends on tools that allow for exploration of new signals, scenarios and topologies. Keysight has developed comprehensive 5G electronic design, simulation and test tools to help engineers gain greater insight into research and early development processes.”
Anite which is now part of Keysight Technologies will show its METIS Channel Emulators wireless solutions.
