OPPO, a leading mobile device manufacturer, has selected the 5G mobile device test solutions from Keysight Technologies to upgrade its 5G communications lab in Shenzhen, China. OPPO's upgraded 5G communication lab includes three major modules: a radio frequency (RF) lab, a protocol lab and a network simulation lab. These labs are designed to explore the mobile devices’ fundamental communication capabilities and ultimate performances under different communication protocols and base stations. Keysight 5G protocol R&D testing application and channel emulation solutions were selected to verify the performance of OPPO’s 5G new radio (NR) design to help maintain their global leading position in advanced technology.
Cao Peng, vice president and general manager for Keysight's wireless test group said that OPPO is fully aware that reliability testing is mandatory before launching competitive commercial products into the market. Keysight 5G test solutions enable OPPO’s engineers to efficiently conduct power consumption testing, regression testing and new feature interoperability testing, as well as emulate crowded streets and high-speed train scenarios which helps OPPO implement their 5G strategy.
Chipset manufacturers and their mobile device ecosystem use Keysight's 5G NR platform, which complies with the latest 3GPP 5G NR standards, to accelerate development, verification and operator acceptance. Keysight 5G solutions cover both Sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave frequencies for conducting and over-the-air (OTA) testing. Common development tools allow customers to share design insights at all stages of the product life cycle to speed the introduction of 5G NR products.
Shu Can, vice president and general manager of Product Strategic Planning and Cooperation Center at OPPO stated that the upgraded OPPO Communication Lab is a new milestone in their 5G strategy, and represents a new level of close cooperation with leading global technology companies. To support the rapid evolution of global 5G technology, they are pleased to join hands with Ericsson and Keysight to leverage their experience in 5G standards, products and applications, and enhance the 5G ecosystem worldwide.
