Keysight, ASUS to accelerate 5G NR device development and verification

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has announced that ASUS, a technology brand, will leverage the company´s 5G network emulation solutions to accelerate 5G New Radio (NR) device development and verification, the company said.

New technologies, such as phased array antennas at mmWave frequencies, beamforming and beam management, are enabling device manufacturers to address 5G enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) use cases. ASUS selected Keysight´s 5G network emulation solutions to validate new designs that support the latest 3GPP 5G New Radio (NR) Release 15 specifications, including beamforming and beam management technologies across both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies.

Keysight offers end-to-end over-the-air (OTA) testing capabilities by combining its network emulation solutions with customizable chambers for radiated testing. ASUS will use the Compact Antenna Test Range chamber, which has been approved by 3GPP, as an indirect far field test methodology. This chamber will be used to perform device characterization and validation under real-world conditions.

Keysight´s 5G solutions enable mobile device ecosystems to streamline the product workflow from early prototyping and development to design validation, and manufacturing. These proven solutions offer a technology roadmap, aligning market readiness with customer requirements.

The development of 5G depends on up-to-date tools that let designers easily explore new signals, scenarios and topologies. Keysight´s 5G solutions are ready to enable deeper insights as development evolves with the standard. In design and test, Keysight is helping industry leaders innovate across new and existing technologies as they transform ideas into reality.
