Keysight Technologies, OPPO to accelerate 5G mobile device development

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a technology company that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments, accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, announced that OPPO, one of the world´s top five mobile device manufacturers, has selected Keysight´s 5G New Radio (NR) network emulation solutions for protocol and radio frequency (RF) performance validation in sub-6GHz frequency bands (FR1), the company said.

The Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer is targeting commercial release of its first 5G mobile device in 2019. Leveraging Keysight´s 5G test solutions, OPPO will accelerate the development of their 5G smartphones and meet their strategic go-to-market goals.

On November 29, OPPO used Keysight´s UXM-based 5G NR network emulation solutions to successfully establish a 5G video call, thereby completing one of the world´s first 5G signaling and data connections based on OPPO´s commercially available mobile phone.

Leading chipset manufacturers and their mobile device ecosystems use Keysight´s 5G NR network emulation solutions, compliant to the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to speed development and validation of new 5G designs. These solutions support both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies for conducted and over-the-air (OTA) testing. Common development tools enable users to share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle. As a result, chipset and device manufacturers can accelerate delivery of new 5G NR products to market.

Keysight´s industry-first 5G end-to-end design and test solutions enable the mobile industry to accelerate 5G product design development from the physical layer to the application layer and across the entire workflow from simulation, design, and verification to manufacturing, deployment, and optimization.
