Keysight & Qualcomm Demonstrate 3GPP 5G-NR Standalone End-to-End IP Data Transfer

Keysight has successfully demonstrated a 3GPP 5G-NR standalone mode IP data transfer using its 5G network emulation solutions and a mobile smartphone form-factor test device based on Qualcomm's 5G modem and antenna modules.

The high-speed IP data download transfer was achieved using a network configuration that combines the latest 3GPP Release 15.3.0 5G NR technologies. This achievement is an important milestone that enables mobile operators to deploy 5G NR standalone (SA) mode, which does not rely on an anchor in the LTE network, to deliver enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) services required by many 5G use cases.

Keysight’s track record of developing early 5G solutions in collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies has yielded many 5G industry-first milestones, including the introduction of the first 5G NR-ready network emulation solutions.

The development of 5G depends on up-to-date tools that let designers easily explore new signals, scenarios and topologies. Keysight's 5G solutions enable deeper insights as development evolves with the standard. In design and test, the company is helping industry leaders innovate across new and existing technologies as they transform ideas into reality.
