Keysight & Samsung Successfully Conduct 5G-NR Inter-Operability Test

Keysight has announced successful inter-operability testing of Keysight’s User Equipment (UE) Emulation Solution and Samsung’s new 5G base station based on 5G New Radio (NR) standards. Both companies have agreed to align their plans to enable 5G base station testing and build an ecosystem of interoperable products.

Combining Samsung’s comprehensive product portfolio with Keysight’s protocol, measurement, simulation and analysis expertise, the two companies are accelerating the development and deployment of 5G networks.

The new UE Emulation Solution clearly reflects the synergy of Keysight’s recent acquisition of Ixia. This solution combines Keysight’s industry-leading RF measurement experience with Ixia’s best-in-class UE emulation framework to handle a wide range of demanding requirements and a variety of configurations for 5G.

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, Keysight and Samsung are demonstrating the performance of the Samsung eNodeB using the 5G-NR standard. The base station throughput was measured by the Keysight UE Emulation Solution.
