OPPO Partners with Keysight to Accelerate 5G Mobile Device Development

Leading Chinese mobile giant, OPPO, has selected Keysight’s 5G-NR network emulation solutions for protocol and RF performance validation in sub-6GHz frequency bands (FR1). OPPO is targeting commercial release of its first 5G mobile device in 2019. Leveraging Keysight’s 5G test solutions, OPPO will accelerate the development of their 5G smartphones and meet their strategic go-to-market goals. On November 29, the company used Keysight’s UXM-based 5G NR network emulation solutions to successfully establish a 5G video call, thereby completing one of the world’s first 5G signaling and data connections based on OPPO’s commercially available mobile phone.

Leading chipset manufacturers are using Keysight’s 5G NR network emulation solutions, compliant to the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to speed development and validation of 5G designs. These solutions support both sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies for conducted and over-the-air (OTA) testing. Common development tools enable users to share design insights gained across each stage of the device lifecycle. As a result, chipset and device manufacturers can accelerate delivery of new 5G NR products to market.

Keysight’s industry-first 5G end-to-end design and test solutions enable the mobile industry to accelerate 5G product design development from the physical layer to the application layer and across the entire workflow from simulation, design, and verification to manufacturing, deployment, and optimization. The company offers common software and hardware platforms compliant to the latest 3GPP standards, enabling the ecosystem to quickly and accurately validate 5G chipsets, devices, base stations and networks, as well as emulate subscriber behavior scenarios.
