SAN FRANCISCO, March 3, 2020 – Keysight Technologies (NYSE: KEYS) today launched a new benchmarking and troubleshooting tool that enables device manufacturers and mobile operators to automatically test and Report. Keysight Technologies is a leading technology company dedicated to helping enterprises, service providers and government customers accelerate innovation and create a secure, connected world.
Keysight’s suite of benchmarking tools for 5G devices accelerates performance verification of 5G devices before they are brought to market. The tool suite combines Keysight’s UXM 5G wireless test platform and Nemo Outdoor with the new Nemo 5G device analysis software into an integrated lab-based test solution that enables users to benchmark and troubleshoot devices, This solves problems and ultimately improves product quality. The Keysight 5G Device Benchmarking Toolkit, one of Keysight’s suite of 5G network emulation solutions, provides standardized, automated reports reflecting the ratings and scores of devices under test.
Keysight used the core test, measurement and data analysis capabilities in its end-to-end test portfolio to create this new tool suite that seamlessly correlates data generated by two devices under test. This enables faster root cause analysis of equipment failures and performance assessments in different end-user scenarios.
Keysight’s suite of benchmarking tools for 5G devices primarily provides users with the following benefits:
·Evaluate device performance in different simulated realistic scenarios
Supports test cases for various key performance indicators (KPIs) including achieved data throughput, successful data resource allocation across LTE and 5G networks, and cell edge performance
Easily benchmark the device under test against reference devices, devices using modems from different chipset vendors, devices from competitors, or devices using different software versions
Petri Toljamo, vice president and general manager of the Wireless Network Solutions Group at Keysight, said: “The global mobile ecosystem wants to provide users with a superior quality of experience (QoE) while providing them access to new services through 5G devices. Combined with the lab test tools, Keysight can empower device manufacturers and mobile operators to deliver 5G equipment to market quickly and confidently to meet user expectations.”
Keysight’s 5G Device Benchmarking Toolkit utilizes a single software environment to provide relevant data from Keysight’s 5G network emulation solutions and the device under test. It is the first end-to-end test solution that provides a fully automated environment for industrial chains that need to benchmark devices produced by manufacturers or that use modems from different chip manufacturers. The industry chain currently includes more than 76 5G equipment manufacturers, which provide 5G New Radio (NR) compatible equipment in more than 16 form factors, and are constantly developing new products.
