Keysight Helps Askey Accelerate Development of 5G Designs on mm-Wave Frequencies

Askey Computer Corporation has selected Keysight's 5G network emulation solution to accelerate development of new 5G designs on millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies.

Askey Computer Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of ASUS Computers, specializes in the manufacturing and development of state of the art electronic and network communications products and tools. Keysight's collaboration with Askey has resulted in the successful demonstration of industry-leading data rates using Askey's 5G new radio (NR) customer premises equipment (CPE).  As a result, leading mobile operators can quickly deploy fixed wireless access (FWA), which relies on high performing CPEs operating in the mmWave frequency spectrum to deliver wireless broadband services to customers' homes.

The demonstration used a new CPE from Askey that leverages Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 modem. It also leveraged Keysight's RF Design and Verification (DVT) Toolset to provide four component carriers (CC) and 2x2 multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technology support required to achieve these high data rates.

Keysight's 5G network emulation solution allows mobile device manufacturers and modem makers to validate new designs, addressing the entire device development workflow from early design, to acceptance and manufacturing. This solution leverages Keysight's UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to support mobile device verification and certification across radio frequency (RF), radio resource management (RRM), and protocol.
