Keysight Technologies Announces New High-Performance 5G Base Station Test Solution to Accelerate Design Verification of Millimeter-Wave Small Cells

Beijing, China, October 23, 2020 – Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) announced a new high-performance 5G base station test solution. Based on Keysight’s S9130A 5G high-performance, multi-band vector transceiver (VXT), the solution is designed to help network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and small cell manufacturers accelerate the deployment of mm Wave products are verified. Keysight Technologies is a leading technology company dedicated to helping enterprises, service providers and government customers accelerate innovation and create a secure, connected world.

To provide enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) connectivity to large urban areas and indoor environments such as stadiums and airports, mobile operators are stepping up to deploy 5G NR in FR2. To rapidly deploy a hybrid network consisting of macro cells, small cell facilities, radio units (RUs) and distributed antenna systems (DAS), testing across the entire workflow must be optimized and streamlined. Keysight’s 5G base station test solution suite was originally launched in 2018 and has been expanded to meet the growing market demand for cost-effective test and validation of 5G mmWave.

Giampaolo Tardioli, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Network Access Group, said: “Keysight’s new 5G base station test solution not only enables NEM to validate 5G high-performance macro base stations in the manufacturing process, but also helps 5G small cells Manufacturers rapidly validate mmWave products in the R&D and design process. This compact solution combines the new 5G high-performance multi-band VXT with Keysight’s internal Common Interface Unit (CIU) and mmWave Remote RF Probe Head (RRH) Together, it provides high-performance over-the-air (OTA) testing.”

Keysight’s high-performance 5G base station test solutions are combined with the new PXIe architecture vector transceiver (VXT) to perform advanced adjacent channel leakage ratio (ACLR) and error vector magnitude (EVM) measurements. Both the new generation VXT and RRH have excellent performance, bringing the measurement surface closer to the device under test (DUT). This means that the DUT can receive high power levels over a wide dynamic power range, resulting in extremely accurate and reliable measurements.

The Keysight S9100 solution suite enables parallel testing of multiple base stations over multiple channels, and when combined with Keysight’s cloud-enabled PathWave software solution suite, simplifies and accelerates the test process, helping manufacturers accelerate the transition from time to time. Transition from design verification to batch testing. Supported Pathwave solutions include:

· X-Series measurement application software for basic measurements such as EVM, ACLR, etc.

5G NR signal creation and playback to characterize power and modulation performance of components and transmitters.

89600 Vector Signal Analysis for advanced demodulation and vector signal analysis.
