Keysight Assists Motorola to Commercialize First 5G NR Mobile Device

Keysight is working with Motorola to develop its first 5G new radio (NR) enabled smartphone operating in millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum.

The upcoming launch of Motorola’s new smartphone represents a key industry milestone resulting from Motorola and Keysight’s collaboration on 5G network emulation solutions for early 5G device prototyping, development, and device design validation. Motorola’s moto z3 smartphone with 5G moto mod leverages Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 modem and 5G NR mmWave technology to deliver significantly faster peak download speeds compared to today’s wireless technology.

The collaboration also resulted in the compliance of Motorola’s devices with 3GPP standards and carrier customer requirements. Keysight’s 5G network emulation solution leverages Keysight’s UXM 5G Wireless Test Platform to support comprehensive device validation across protocol, radio frequency (RF), and radio resource management (RRM) in both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum.

Keysight’s 5G network emulation solution will be used by Motorola to showcase the full capabilities of its new 5G smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2019 (MWC19).
