Keysight & OPPO Establish 5G Test Laboratory in China

Keysight Technologies has established a joint 5G test laboratory in Shenzhen, China with OPPO, one of the top five mobile device manufacturers, further extending the collaboration between the two companies.

The new lab uses Keysight’s 5G platform to help verify the performance of new 5G new radio (NR) designs, a key activity that will help the Chinese-based smartphone manufacturer expand its global market presence. Keysight’s solutions, which are widely adopted by leading chipset and device makers, enable OPPO to comprehensively test their 5G multi-mode devices in different form factors.

Chipset manufacturers and their mobile device ecosystems use Keysight's 5G NR platform, which is compliant to the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to accelerate development, validation and carrier acceptance. The platform supports both sub-6GHz 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 and capitalize on early commercial revenue opportunities. 

On November 29, 2018, OPPO used Keysight's UXM-based 5G NR network emulation solutions to successfully establish a 5G video call, thereby completing one of the first 5G signaling and data connections based on OPPO's commercially available mobile phone.
