Quectel Selects Keysight’s 5G Solutions for IoT & Fixed Access Applications

Keysight announced that their 5G network emulation solutions have been selected by Quectel, a global supplier of 5G and IoT modules, to accelerate commercialization of industrial internet of things (IoT), mobile broadband and fixed wireless access (FWA) applications.

Quectel selected Keysight's 5G RF DVT Toolset, part of Keysight's suite of 5G network emulation solutions, over their existing supplier to support its strategic goal of providing a connected mobile ecosystem with commercial 5G modules. Keysight's RF DVT Toolset enables Quectel to validate protocol and radio frequency (RF) performance of new designs in both sub-6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency bands.

Quectel's latest 5G modules (RG500Q, RM500Q, RG510Q, and RM510Q) are compliant with 3GPP Release 15 specifications and capable of both 5G standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes.  These modules feature the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 5G modem from Qualcomm Technologies and Keysight recently announced that the company established a 5G NR data call in Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) mode, using the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 5G modem. Consequently, Keysight enables device makers and their mobile ecosystems to validate 5G NR multi-mode designs in both NSA and SA modes.
