A demonstration of 5G New Radio (NR) technology was unveiled by Keysight Technologies at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It combines Keysight’s UE emulation platform with DatangMobile’s base station in China Mobile’s booth. The demonstration is the result of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two companies to collaborate on the 5G technology evaluation for China Operators.
It showcases the compatibility with 3GPP R15 air interface requirements, and the outstanding throughput achieved.
"China has taken a leadership role in driving the 5G global ecosystem,” said Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president of Keysight’s Network Access group. "DatangMobile has now demonstrated that they are leading the way for delivering the China operators’ requirements into the market.”
"Keysight’s leadership in test systems has been fundamental in helping us accelerate our 5G plans," said Xiaonan Sun, executive vice president, DatangMobile. "They can uniquely address any part of the test system, offering flexible configurations to meet our specific requirements."
"DatangMobile has Keysight jump start the development and testing for our 5G NR UE emulation platform,” said Kalyan Sundhar, vice president of Mobility, Virtualization and Applications at Keysight. “Keysight’s purchase of Ixia last year has enabled us to combine powerful UE emulation into Keysight’s vast test and analysis solutions for RF and microwave systems. This allows us to deliver a complete Keysight UE emulation system that includes load and functional testing as well as channel emulation and mmWave capability to our customers.”
