Keysight Technologies has joined forces with Tech Mahindra to accelerate 5G device development, verification, and ultimately certification of 5G devices. As a result, customers will have access to Keysight’s 5G network emulation systems which enable device and chipset manufacturers to prototype and develop pre-5G and 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) chipsets and devices.
The collaboration will be supported by Tech Mahindra 5G test specialists at multiple Tech Mahindra Lab centres in the US and India.
“Keysight is committed to facilitating 5G workflow with design verification tools that help debug and validate the performance of pre-5G and 5G NR devices, as well as through our relationship with Tech Mahindra which results in on-demand access to these development tools,” said Satish Dhanasekaran, president, Communications Solutions Group, Keysight. “The 5G market is moving quickly, and 3GPP is working to formalise the 5G device test requirements. Therefore, it is essential that Keysight provides this concurrent engineering environment pre-standards test capabilities that support the accelerated 5G development lifecycle.”
“We are glad to partner with Keysight Technologies for 5G global test labs. Tech Mahindra is a world leader in device testing for GCF/PTCRB and Operator Certifications. We both are excited and committed to extend these capabilities into the 5G space” said Karthikeyan Natarajan, Global Head – Engineering & IOT, Tech Mahindra.
Keysight’s 5G development test solutions provide the necessary in-depth insight chipset and device manufacturers need to analyse and debug the behaviour of their 5G devices through the development process.
Last year, Keysight was announced that its suite of 5G network emulation solutions, including 5G Protocol R&D and RF Design Verification tools support the new 3GPP 5G NR Non-Standalone standard.
Keysight's 5G network emulation solutions enable the device ecosystem to simplify workflows, share insights, and speed time to market through a common and scalable software platform.
