Keysight Helping Accelerate Introduction of 5G-Enabled IoT Devices in China

In order to help accelerate the market introduction of innovative 5G-enabled IoT devices for consumers in China, Keysight has announced a collaboration with leading IoT-enabled smart home solutions expert, VIOMI. Under the collaboration, VIOMI will be using Keysight’s 5G solutions to validate the RF performance of its IoT devices for home applications.

Keysight’s comprehensive portfolio of test solutions enables IoT providers, such as VIOMI, to ensure their products perform as expected on a wide range of cellular networks, including 5G, NB-IoT and Category M1. VIOMI uses Qualcomm's latest platform, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC and X55 5G Modem to deliver products that will help redefine China’s future homes. By using Keysight’s 5G emulation solution suite, which is the same as adopted by Qualcomm and its ecosystem of device makers, VIOMI can reliably bring to market products that deliver a seamless user experience.

Ecosystems consisting of mobile operators, device makers and test labs, use Keysight's 5G solutions to address 5G test requirements, accelerating commercial deployment of 5G multi-mode devices in different form factors. The company is addressing global test requirements on a single solution platform, enabling the mobile industry to achieve rapid validation of device performance and consistent results.

The deployment of massive IoT networks is expected to create a $1.2 billion global opportunity by 2024 according to a report published by Research and Markets earlier this year. Keysight’s 5G device test solutions are well-positioned to address the 5G IoT endpoint installed base market, which Gartner predicts will more than triple between 2020 and 2023.
