Keysight assists China Mobile to develop 5G technologies

Test and measurement company Keysight Technologies announced its partnership with China Mobile Communications to develop 5G technologies.

China Mobile, the largest telecom operator, will rely on Keysight, the leading T&M supplier, to perform 5G Radio Frequency (RF) modelling and simulation. China is expected to take lead in the 5G market fuelled by investment from China Mobile and other leading telecom operators.

Keysight said its SystemVue enables the Chinese mobile operator to create modelling and simulation of 5G RF systems to determine performance metrics to apply to its mobile network.
Keysight 5G and IoT testingChina Mobile uses SystemVue to build system level simulation that involve 5G Baseband, RF, Antenna, as well as Wireless Channel modeling. These simulations have helped China Mobile to achieve desired results in standardization contributions, 5G specification, and application development.

“Our collaboration with China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) on 5G is an example of how we’re working together to develop and promote the 3GPP standard,” said Tom Lillig, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Design Engineering Software Group.

SystemVue offers telecom engineers the blocks necessary to build and optimize a signal source, baseband transceiver, RF transceiver, phased array antenna, and perform signal analysis, thereby accelerating development within a single software platform.

Keysight’s 5G NR software solutions enable device and network equipment manufacturers to simulate, prototype and validate physical layer implementations with greater insight and confidence.

Keysight said 5G NR software solutions cover the full product design cycle with simulation, signal creation and analysis, with uplink and downlink directions, providing transmitter and receiver simulation and test.
