Keysight Technologies Expands Commitment to the OpenCellular Project

Keysight Technologies has announced an expanded commitment to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) founded by Facebook and other listed members of the group. 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.

Although the future wireless network expectations are ubiquitous, high performing and global, less than half the world’s population has access to the internet. This is mainly due to geographical and/or economical factors that make it prohibitive to cover with traditional cellular networks. Even in regions that 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’s expanded commitment to the Telecom Infra Project will enable them to simplify the test process and drive adoption of OpenCellular technology worldwide through its solutions portfolio. Their contributions to TIP will help service providers and manufacturers simplify the implementation and manufacturing of their designs, enabling quick and efficient low-cost networks of the future.

Keysight is showing the TIP test cases, in addition to its latest software-centric design and test solutions for LTE-A, 5G, IoT and Connected Car technologies at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona.
