OPPO picks Keysight to upgrade 5G communications lab in China

OPPO, a mobile device manufacturer, has selected 5G mobile device test solutions from Keysight Technologies to upgrade its 5G communications lab in Shenzhen, China.
Keysight Technologies for telecom operatorsOPPO’s 5G communication lab includes three major modules: a radio frequency (RF) lab, a protocol lab and a network simulation lab. These labs are designed to explore the mobile devices’ communication capabilities and ultimate performances under different communication protocols and base stations.

Keysight 5G protocol R&D testing application and channel emulation solutions were selected to verify the performance of OPPO’s 5G new radio (NR) design to help maintain their global leading position in advanced technology.

“Keysight 5G test solutions enable OPPO’s engineers to conduct power consumption testing, regression testing and new feature interoperability testing, as well as emulate crowded streets and high-speed train scenarios,” Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight’s wireless test group, said.

Chipset manufacturers and mobile makers use Keysight’s 5G NR platform, which complies with the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to accelerate development, verification and operator acceptance.

Keysight 5G solutions cover both Sub6GHz and millimeter wave frequencies for conducting and over-the-air (OTA) testing. Common development tools allow customers to share design insights at all stages of the product life cycle to speed the introduction of 5G NR products.

“The upgraded OPPO Communication Lab is a milestone in our 5G strategy, and represents a new level of close cooperation with leading global technology companies,” said Shu Can, vice president and general manager of Product Strategic Planning and Cooperation Center at OPPO.
