Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) has expanded its commitment to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), founded by Facebook and others, the company said.
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 helps customers bring breakthrough electronic products and systems to market faster and at a lower cost. Its solutions go where the electronic signal goes, from design simulation, to prototype validation, to manufacturing test, to optimization in the network.
